Hi Barbara
I use Paintbox simply because it doesn't take up space in a very crowded house (wall to wall people) and it is cost effective. I hope to have lessons at some stage.
Congrats on that big award too - even though a couple of years back those li'l things have ripples!

Hi Barbara Jean, Thanks for asking about the audio on my website. The website is www.jfitzgeraldmccurdy.com. Click on "my books" and then on either The Fire Demons or The Black Pyramid and you'll see an audio button on the right of the screen. That should do it. Thanks again. Joan

Hi Barbar,
Thanks for the friend request. Ghost stories are some of my favorites. Good luck with your work in progress. I'm writing another ghost story. It's in rough stages now. Have a good week.

Barbara, Thanks for your note. I wasn't familiar with Pieces: A Year in Poems & Quilts" by Anna Grossnickle Hines. Just went to Amazon and "looked inside" - WOW! Will now need to read this one. Thank you for the recommendation.

Best, Kyra

Hey BJ!
Thanks for the encouraging words! I really appreciate the input. Yes, it was hard to lose my old friend (and all the others). When these guys die I realize a big chunk of my life is really over. But!! Last week I rescued 2 cats. One is Pinkerton, a grey and white cat who is a big, ... more

Barbara, this a very-very late reply. I am still dealing with some confusion in my inbox. But I am sure I am not too late to say that I love your work. Jitterbug Jam and the Secret Life of Walter Kitten are among my favorites!
Thank you so much for your congratulations.

Barbara, I just thought you'd like to know that "The Secret Life of Walter Kitty" was accepted into the Original Art Show by the Society of Illustrators in New York. Yay Walter! Hope all is well.

Hi Barbara Jean,

Thanks for reciprocating by joining as "my friend" on my page. I realize though, I gotta get more friends! Not for lack of them, just my lack of follow-up to invite them. Keep up the nice work!
