Jessica as an angel and Jonathan as a gold-crowned king in a California play 2004
Help me write my way home to see my children in California. I haven’t seen Jessica (21) and Jonathan (18) in the 3 years I’ve been teaching English overseas. After I got divorced from their father (who got everything, including them), I couldn’t find a teaching job in America, so I went to Russia in October, 2010. After 6 frozen months, I flew to Turkey where I lived and taught for 2.5 years. I met my Turkish husband there. After nearly getting arrested for writing about the Turkish freedom protests and posting a photo, I went (with my Turkish husband) to teach English in China just 2 months ago.
In all these ups and downs, I’ve been able to support myself. But I haven’t bought a much-needed new computer (my old Apple laptop is 9 years old and very slow). I haven’t taken a real vacation. And I haven’t been able to afford a trip back to Los Angeles to see my children.
From Sunday, November 3 to Sunday, November 10, all 5 of my books are only $.99 (less than a dollar) for Kindle format. You can pick from my true cancer survival story, travel adventures, science fiction, and fantasy. Or you could splurge and pay $9.99 for a paperback. My books encourage people to survive anything, and they make great Christmas presents. Light can shine in the darkest places.
Please buy one of my books for a friend, think of me, and share my story.
Thank you. See my books here.
