Title: Questions I Would Have Asked

Snippet: As I ran through grassy fields and along the seashore in bare feet, I thought time stood still and childhood would last forever. When work life began, however, time began to accelerate. What once felt like months to pass took only a few short days.

I thought I had all the time in the world to ask my family the important questions even though I had little idea of which ones were more important than others. Now, with my grandparents and my father deceased and my mother’s memory slipping a little more with each trip around the sun, I have fewer family members to ask about days gone by.

  1. Pauline, that is wonderful. I’m happy to hear your book is reaching many readers. I’ll check out the book on Smashwords. It sounds like your writing up a storm. Good for you. I haven’t had much time to write in the past seven months, but I hope to return to my fiction this fall. Good luck with your books.
