I said what? I'm always complimented when I see that someone has quoted a line from one of my books (thank you!) but very often too, I'm surprised (as with the one I posted below about grandmothers?!) You never know just what phrase will strike a chord with someone. As I come across quotes that readers have pulled from my books I will post them below--both the common and obscure. Maybe one will strike a chord with you too. Oh, and every one of the background pictures I took myself somewhere along the road in my travels--anywhere from my own backyard, to tiny villages in France, to cathedrals in Italy, to the back roads of California.
