For the next few months, Tuesdays on my blog will feature one of my fellow Martin Sisters Publishing authors. There are a bunch of us, and we all write in various genres, so enjoy the fun stuff included in these posts and maybe even check out the MSP website.
Today’s feature is Street Lady by Lois D. Carlson.
Left destitute by the death of her husband, Ella Martin must find a way to make it on her own.
Milton, her deceased spouse, accrued his wealth at the expense of unsuspecting investors and then lost it all amid charges of fraud and deceit.
Ella now must cope with the loss of her home, her possessions, most of her devoted friends, and her only son, from whom she has been estranged for several years.
Living on the street and having to find a way to survive, she must confront her fears and draw upon her inner resources. Chance encounters along the way bring new hope and unexpected outcomes for her seemingly impossible dilemma.
Lois D. Carlson has published several magazine articles in War Cry, Mature Years, and La Verne Community News, and is also the author of the novel,Shadows Of The Past.
In addition to her writing, she continues to work part time as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at San Antonio Community Hospital. For many years she provided counseling in health care and private practice. She is a member of the Audubon Society and is developing her interests in bird watching, loves to take long walks and is an avid figure skating enthusiast. She shares her home with her two adorable cats, Teeger and Jitters who provide her with ongoing entertainment.
Her most recent novel, Street Lady, was released July 2013 by Martin Sisters Publishing.
