I am extraordinarily pleased and proud to present to you my memoir, Star Crossed, published November 2013 through Headwinds Publishing, an imprint of Hard Press Editions.
When we met, Richard was a seventeen-year-old Jewish kid. I, at twenty-one, was a Catholic college senior. One day there he was, in the faculty lounge of his high school, where I’d been assigned to fulfill a practice teaching requirement.
Seven weeks later, we were engaged. This was 1968, when Jews and Catholics rarely married “outside.” To say our courtship was ill-received is an understatement. And then the fun began….
I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I did its telling.
