This is a book that was never meant to be. It is a compilation of 20 years’ devoted effort for local writers group. Group members were given biweekly assignments in class. They were each given time to read their story at which time, the instructor and class members were allowed to critique and comment.
After a few years, Carol Ann Ruggiero published two articles in a magazine. When I asked her if she could publish more, she said, “No, I did that already.”
When Carol passed away, I gathered her writings into this collection. They are short, very funny, always thought-provoking and just what the world needs in these often sad and scary times.
