My book


What More Could You Wish For  is a coming-of-middle-age story. Libby Carson is quickly approaching her 50th birthday, coming to terms with love. There's a steady guy and everyone expects she'll marry him, but then a first love from high school enters the picture and a family tragedy forces her to re-examine her priorities. This is Libby's story as she figures out what she wants for the second chapter of her life.
