My Essay on How I Met My Husband is in Sasee's October Magazine

Photo, Oct 17 Sasee Magazine
"Melodies and Memories"
Cover Artist: Mike Daneshi
If you're curious how a nineteen-year-old teenage girl from St. Louis met a twenty-year-old airman/immigrant who was born in the German Bavarian Alps, you can read about it by following the link below.

My essay titled "Living the American Dream" appears in Sasee's October 2017 issue with the theme "Melodies and Memories." The beautifully vivid and evocative cover art is done by Mike Daneshi.

If you're a writer interested in submitting to Sasee, here's a copy of their guidelines.

Hope you enjoy!

Note: Next week I will begin posting interviews I've received from contributors to Mysteries of the Ozarks, V.

  3. What a great story, Donna! Can you imagine what would've happened if you and your friends hadn't pressed on through the bad roads that night?!

    I also really liked the smaller details, like how Walt smelled like English Leather and spearmint gum.

    1. Your blog is always so uplifting. I enjoy your posts. My hubby lives in Mass, and we returned there for more than four years after he returned from Vietnam. Love the autumn leaves there!
