I wish I had a nickle for every time somebody has said, “Marian, eh? Like the librarian?” I don’t mind the joke, because I love The Music Man, I’d love to look and sing and dance like Shirley Jones, and I wouldn’t mind smooching on Robert Preston, either. I also love books. So I don’t mind, I just wish I had a nickle for every time I heard it.
At one time, I memorized Robert Preston’s “Ya Got Trouble” routine and performed it at amateur theatricals around and about. I know it’s difficult to believe, what with my being so elegant and dignified and all — SHUT UP!
In other news, I just found out my short story collections (except for TURTLE FEATHERS, which is still enrolled in KDP Select but is free there for Select borrowing AND for everybody on Fridays this April) … I lost my place. Oh, yes: MOST of my short story collections are available through iTunes. How cool is that? Way, that’s how! I think I’ve added that link in all the appropriate places on this site. If I’ve missed a place, I’d take it kindly if you let me know.
