Waiting by Doree Anderson
Author Bio: From Doree's website: "Do you remember your first crush, the first time a boy held your hand, your first kiss? I try and capture those tender memories in my Middle Grade and Teen books along with a few interesting misfits who believe they are of this realm.
During my childhood in Missouri, I became rather enamored with a gentleman writer named Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain) and enjoyed trips to the town of Hannibal, where his Tom Sawyer adventures were born. A lot of my writing will reflect areas of my own adventures in and around the Lake of the Ozarks. Memories of weekends exploring the many coves and caves that sprout up throughout southern Missouri will peek between my pages.
At the age of fifty-one, I received the most gracious gift from my husband; the opportunity to write full-time with his open and honest support. What a valued treasure this is because of the financial burden alone. My personal life is filled by my husband of 35 years, My beautiful daughter, Jodie and four exceptional grand-children; Kelsey, Callum, Taeg and Nodin, who’s personalities peek through on several pages in my books."
