In the process of writing my first novel during the past year, I made two new friends, Cookies and Ice Cream. In fact they are so loyal that they refuse to leave my side. Literally. They are stuck to me all the time and I just cannot get rid of them. When I finally finished the book and began to send it off to agents and editors I thought they would stop hanging around. But, alas, they are still here. They even brought a couple more of their buddies, Vodka and Sour Gummies. Go figure. Now it’s a party !
