35. Actually, I DID write a book.

I knew Helen because of her close friendship with my dad, who was also a print journalist. That went back many decades. I only wish I had brought along a recorder when she talked about her times with JFK. SO many stories, but we never thought she'd ever depart us, so we never got around to it. Suddenly, instead of calling her up for our usual dinner date, we were invited to her memorial service. That was hard one to swallow. She was a great friend.

My book has some of the very few recorded interviews with Thomas Jefferson. They are somewhat fictitious, but don't let a little detail like that stop ya!

By the way, thanks for the vote of confidence. Not all here share your sentiments!
