Most of the stories I write don’t have a direct connection to me. An idea will pop into my head and I’ll run with it. A Walk Along the Beach is the exception. This story is personal. I lost my best friend to cancer May 21, 2018. Roberta Stalberg (Christina Skye), and I shared a love of knitting, travel, plotting and so much more. We laughed and cried together.
I don’t mind confessing her death badly shook me. I decided to take a year off, a sabbatical from writing. As the weeks progressed instead of not writing, I made the decision to do what I know Roberta would have wanted me to do. To write and create a story worthy of her memory. This story is for Roberta, with love.
