I hear you on the chocolate and the cheesecake!

Christine Johnson said...

There is never too much chocolate. Lenora, I knew you were a prolific writer, but 60 books? Wow! Way to go!

Pamela Tracy said...

That's my favorite Bible verse, too. Congrats on 60 books :) You rock!

Mindy Obenhaus said...

60 books? I am in awe, Lenora. And I'm with Christine, one can never have enough chocolate. :)

I'm so sorry you've lost your beloved sister, Lenora. I'd love to hear a little more about her and the influence she had in your life, if you're willing to share.

Lenora, it's fun to find out more about you!

I LOVE your Zondervan cover!

Leann Harris said...

Lenora, I remember that first meeting after you sold. I was visiting your chapter. You've written your fingers off and worked for your success. Congrats.

Terri Reed said...

Love you Lenora! And Elnora too!
Beautiful covers!

Lenora said...

Thanks for all the comments. I'm at RT in New Orleans. Having fun and enjoying meeting our readers!! Keli, The Wedding Quilt, my first LI was based on my sister Glenda's death. It's not about her but about the emotions of going through that. She was funny, devout and adventurous and she loved to shop!!

Great point about 'The Business' side of things :)

I'm a day late chiming in, but have to say "Hello" to Lenora! She's such a sweetheart, and I was thrilled to meet her last year at RWA!! :)
Blessings, Patti Jo

Glad to catch up!

Hello wonderful people.

Nice knowing more about my Mom Lenora. Of course I know some of this already.

60 books?! That's a great milestone. I hope one day I'll be able to write like you.

Sandra Orchard said...

Wow, I'm days late to the party! You must have had a wild April with 2 books out. I didn't know you wrote outside LI lines! How out of it am I?! I'm eager to check them out. Congrats!
