Remembering Our Secret Places

​by A. Raby

Often as children, and sometimes as adults, we find a place which becomes ours. The place usually does not legally belong to us, yet in our hearts it only ever belongs to us.

by Ann Ulrich Miller

       Author's Note: This was a blog entry I wrote in December 2009, seven months after I'd moved to Pagosa Springs, Colo. Fifteen months had passed since my husband, Ethan Miller, had passed away following a long illness at our home in Ohio.


         Two weeks ago a shift occurred. Right after Thanksgiving, I discovered that something wonderful had come into my life ... a new man, a new love ... and I am so distracted, I am having trouble focusing on my work, completing projects, shopping for Christmas gifts ... it is the most remarkable thing that has ever happened to me.

THE DREAM CHASERS by Ann Ulrich Miller

November 2018 • 328 pages • Haunted by her dead sister who died two years ago under questionable circumstances, B.J. Martin faces outrageous challenges after starting a new business in southern Colorado. Too many bizarre and frightening incidents cause her to suspect that someone wants her valley-wide shopper newspaper to fail.  Risking everything she owns for her start-up publication, B.J. handles each new stumbling block with courage and conviction, unrelenting as she faces a burglary break-in, stalkers, spies, accusations of bigotry, vehicle disasters ... and tackling the cold case murder of her sister involved in a drug cartel. Still suffering from a devastating divorce 17 years ago, she is leery of men. Yet when Grant Tucker, publisher of the rival Mountain Sentinel daily newspaper, takes more than a casual interest in her, B.J. finds she can no longer distinguish between betrayal and the possibility that she could still have it all. • $15.00 + $3.00 S&H)
