Hi, Carolyn.  I hope you receive this, as I never use these formats.  I have been wondering if you were still in Texas and what has happened in your life.  I am still in Minneapolis, retired from work as a social worker/probation officer, and enjoying life filled with friends, grandchiklren and adventures.  Please send me your email address and/or phone number so we can reconnect.  My email is

For those of you who have teenagers in the family, you may like to know I've just released a new Young Adult novel entitled Double Take.  Acquired by Twin Cities publisher Fire and Ice, it's available in paperback from and on Amazon, and Barnes and Noble as an e-book.

When sixteen-year-old Brooke Bentley's green convertible and cell phone conk out during a tropical rainstorm, she believes it's just bad luck.  But when she darts through the dark to a dilapidated Victorian she thinks is the home of a friend and is invited in by a butler in a faded black tux, Brooke knows it must be karma.  Because how often do you meet a reclusive 1950's movie star who thinks she's actress Terry Moore?  And how often does someone as charming as eighty-year-old Laura de France insist on transforming you into a movie star too?

How can something as simple as a dress control your life?  It can if it's the famous green toga worn by actress Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra and you'll do anything to wear it.

Please give it a peek.  I think you will enjoy Double Take.  Especially those of you who remember the 1953 film Beneath the 12-Mile Reef, starring Robert Wagner and Terry Moore, which I've woven into the plot.

Contratulations, Laura! I know how hard it is to write and publish a book. I'm the author of 11 published adult novels, two non-fiction books and three novellas. You can find all my work on or at my website:

I loved the books you sent me! Now I'm going on Amazon to find the rest of your books. Who knew an old childhood friend would become a published author. Congratulations!

Hi, LuAnn! 

Our tentative plans are for a 75th+/- Birthday Luncheon/Mini-Reunion in September 2016.  We have not firmed up a date yet but will try to organize it around the Hall of Fame Dinner and/or the All-Alumnae Golf Outing--both of which are in September.

Love to have you on board!  We will keep you posted as we get closer to confirming our initial planning.

Thanks for your interest!!

Thanks, LuAnn and Helen!

We are looking at the Lost Spur as a possible venue--maybe mid-September.  It would be awesome to have both of you on board!  Will definitely keep you posted when the planning begins!!

Hope I can be back for this.  My husband and I just bought a summer house in Iowa Falls, Iowa where he's from so I may be close by.  It would be great to see everyone.
