Junk contributor (junkie? junketeer?) Laurie Woodum has recently published her first memoir, Goodnight Sweet Pea.

From Laurie on Goodnight Sweet Pea:

Determined that her mother will die in her own home, a daughter faces floundering as an inexperienced caregiver, job loss, a strained marriage, and restricted freedom. And she discovers the unexpected beauty and humor along a path paved by dementia and lined with the deeper rhythms of life. Goodnight Sweet Pea: Falling in Love with My Mother–A book about loving and letting go.

Congratulations Laurie!

February is going to be a great month for us. We have another author interview from esteemed author Alan Kaufman, as well as an excerpt from his latest work, Drunken Angel.


Laurie Woodum’s Amazing story, “Grace”

This months’ story came to us through the grapevine. Someone from my writing group saw the story where it first appeared on Laurie Woodum’s blogI see paradise, and let me know. And I’m so pleased she did. Grace is an amazing story. It’s beautiful and haunting, one of those startling revelations we sometimes get,  when we least expect it. Enjoy.
