It’s almost the end of September and
in most places, fall is in the air! But I
live down south, where the heat persists
and still, lingers there!
At times, it can
get to be monotonous, but when the chill
of winter and the snow, comes your way,
how great it is, to be here. No worry, about
cleaning up driveways, to make the snow,
Here I am, still running around
in shorts and enjoying the warmth, of the
sun! I’m feeling happy and carefree. If you
could change places, wouldn’t you change,
places with me?
Who needs the snow piled
up high and the cold, that bites at your nose?
You can hardly, make your way walking, as
parts of your body, have already froze! Not
my cup of tea, to be sure! For me, there’s only
one, simple cure.
Pack up your gear and drive
down here, to enjoy, the warm and breezy nights.
Stay as long as you can, get that golden tan and
take in, all the lovely sights! Perhaps like me,
you’ll like it so much, you’ll make this, your
permanent home. And once you do, you’ll get
that feeling and no longer, will you want, to roam!
-Audrey Heller

Join us from 1:00 to 3:00 pm on September 24 as we welcome author Vanessa Riley. Vanessa is an award-winning author of historical romance, mystery, and fiction novels featuring realistic multicultural communities and powerful persons of color. To fuel her interest in the Regency and early-Victorian eras, she made time for attending renaissance fairs and consuming period novels and films while obtaining her Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and a master’s in industrial engineering and engineering management from Stanford University, as well as a BS and MS in mechanical engineering from Penn State University. A frequent speaker at literary, women's, and STEM events, she lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her military husband and teenage kid. Visit her online at

Vanessa has recently released her latest novel, Murder in Westminster, joining her other novels: Sister Mother Warrior released in July, and Island Queen last summer, as well as Brides of London and three books in the Rogues and Remarkable Women series.
