Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? Yes, I was young. I would rewrite the stories I read in my head, often getting lost in my imagination.

A shoe lover’s book.

~Women’s Obsession with Shoes is a collection of twenty-one stories from women about their lives told through a pair of shoes. The stories range from a lost pair of moccasins at a Pow Wow to a six-foot woman making a claim on a man’s chest in stiletto boot. Every story about a pair of shoes is told in a woman’s voice as if you were sitting next to her as she told her story. Some of the stories will spark memories while others will merely be entertaining in their own way.
