We even went to Nashville, Tennessee together to the National Council of the Teachers of English (NCTE) annual meeting. It was wonderful. Janis and I and our other friend Shelly stuck together like glue and decided to go on a writing marathon one afternoon. What a hoot that Janis got a tattoo that day! Would you like to know where it is? Because we hung out in a dusty old bar called "Tootsies" and wound up picking out tats together. I got mine about a year later, but Janis is a trooper and got hers on the spot. Shelly, well, she's a little more of a shy-away-from-bodyart sorta girl. That's good too. I was the "not today" girl.

Janis asked her friends to write a review of "My Finest" and post it to Amazon. Since I bought the book on Kindle and had already read it, I wrote a review.
