this is very nice to read about you, susan. "life as we knew it" is one of my favorite books ever. i was crying and called my mom when i finished it (this is a good sign). if i ever feel down about writing stories, i read it to inspire me and get me a little bit emotional :)

i'm sorry to hear about your mother but it sounds like she lived a very long and full and happy life, and that's all we can ask for, isn't it?

Many years ago (about 25) I wrote you a letter about "The Year Without Michael." I was heartbroken at the time because I felt the story was never resolved and I wanted a sequel. You replied your editor would not allow one. I have thought about this story many times over the years, and recently found a copy at a used book store. I just read it again, and as a mother of 4, one daughter (19) and three boys (14, 13, and 12') I read it with an entirely new perspective. I am sure I cried those many years ago, but these tears were very different. I pray for those who lose loved ones and never find closure. I learned of that pain because of Jody. She will always be one of my heroines.
