Justine Grown Up (1979-84) (the third book in a contemporary historical family saga):
Justine’s jealous feelings at the birth of Julie’s first child are quickly turned around when she reconnects with David, now twenty-five and a Ph.D. student at SUNY Albany, with the five-year difference between them suddenly no longer so inappropriate. Unfortunately, her older siblings and their friends have a hard time seeing her, after years of being the precious family baby, as a grownup woman who’s old enough for marriage, motherhood, and moving out with her new family. But then, when her young nieces become Duranies, an unexpected opportunity opens up for Justine to finally prove once and for all to her family that she’s a responsible, capable, mature adult.

|More About Me||
I’m a Piscean Sagittarian (all my Sag placements, Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Neptune, have a more Piscean feel because Pisces’s ruler Neptune was directly influencing Sagittarius the year I was born). I have very dinosaur taste in music, movies, and books. I had hyperlexia at age three, and the first book I ever read was the adult, uncensored version of Grimm’s Fairy Tales.
Depending on who’s classifying me and which criteria are used, I’m either left-handed mixed or predominantly left-handed. I was in the closet about the true extent of my sinistrality until I was an adult, since I grew up writing right-handed over 95% of the time and my mother thought I was just being oppositional or lying when I said I was ambidextrous and that I could only use a knife with my left hand. I switched my predominant writing hand from right to left recently and couldn’t be happier. And even before I realized I was more left-handed than I’d wanted to admit, I always made sure to include at least a few lefties and ambis in my writing, and was always drawn to lefties and left-handed history.
Oh, and I tend to write very long books (think well over 500 pages). Even my much-shorter books are part of series documenting characters, families, and their town over many decades.
