Default Wrote a Book! Title - EQUINOX - A.F. Smith

Retired after a heart attack in 2015.I was really feeling lost. After 30 years caring for children ,I didn't know what to do. Then we moved further into the country .My husband fell in love with a house .I missed the home we had been in .All those years my identity was . the DAYCARE LADY who pushed a 5 seat stroller all over town. We moved closer to our daughters and Grandchildren. Surprise we didn't see them that much. They had their own lives. I joined the senior center but like it was hard to fit in. One club was the writing club. Though they were welcoming I attended a handful of times. It started me writing that was 2019 -Jan finished the book by October and then had to figure out how to type it and get it published. Last week I uploaded the finished product. Today it can be bought on Amazon , Ingram Sparks and Barnes and Noble. The experts say write what you know... so you can guess .The story is about a retired Daycare Provider who meets a former child who needs help. Genre Contemporary Women's Fiction with a little Fantasy thrown in. Hope some of you will read it. I have never left the site ,in these trying times I hope you all stay safe and healthy A.F. Smith (Nancy)

The title is EQUINOX by A.F.Smith --Ann F Smith. I haven't figured out how to share the link. It truly is amazing I figured out how to get it in print lol. My husband (and biggest fan ) helped a lot. Writing it was the easy part.

Update, my book is at a small library in Washington N.H. Pretty exciting ,even if I don't sell many. I am working on second book now. It does pass the time during this weird Pandemic. At least the kids won't get a painting or something like pottery that "Nana "made for Christmas this year. A book is much easier to shelve lol. Stay safe and sane everybody!
