Dear Librarians,

After a diagnosis of cancer and a lover's betrayal awaken the ghosts of an unsettled past, I travel back to Kansas, my childhood state.  MY RUBY SLIPPERS follows me to the thirteen houses of my childhood, where I learn what it means to dwell deeply in the place I find myself and in my one and only life.  

A lyric meditation on place and displacement, MY RUBY SLIPPERS explores many themes that will touch on the lives of your patrons: rootlessness and attachment to place, home, family, forgiveness, and living in the face of mortality.  

" a wonderfully vivid and compassionate book."—Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic and Desire

"... a brave meditation on mortality."—Terese Svoboda, author of Black Glasses Like Clark Kent

A "smart meditation on place."—Kirkus

My first library at age 4 was the beautiful Carnegie Library in Goodland, Kansas.  Is there gratitude enough in the world for that? 

Thanks for all you do,
