    Fabulous news, Laurel, and well deserved! Your style is so conversational, you sit the reader right down on the horse hair davenport next to you and let her rip in the most delightfully irreverent way, leaving Fannie Flagg and Erma Bombeck in your exhaust fumes. As we say in the South, bless your little heart, darlin’!
