This coming Sunday will see historic High Street in Cambridge full of artists and shoppers at the Dorchester Center For the Arts juried arts and crafts show - Showcase. The show runs from noon until 5 p.m. with hundreds of participants.

The Wednesday Morning Artists will be on the street offering art by several of its members including Pat Hayes, Debbie Haynes, Anne Albuery Hock, Marilyn Stone, Marilyn Benton and others.

The WMA will also sponsor an art drawing of a set of handcrafted sterling silver jewelry from Pat Hayes and a painted screen door (as seen in Baltimore) by Debbie Haynes. Drawing will be at 4 pm and the first ticket drawn will give the owner first choice of the screen door or jewelry.

I will be offering my books: The first three novels in the Chesapeake Heritage series and Runaway Hearts. In addition, I will offer 75 grab bags which hold handmade necklaces valued to $25. These grab bags go well and often suit the new owner perfectly. One third of all my sales and all of the income from the drawing will go to the Cambridge Mural Project which still lacks a considerable amount of funding to pay off the costs of this enormous project. If you have not yet seen the mural at Cannery Way off Race Street, do stop by to see a pictoral history of Cambridge done by local artists.

It is going to be a great day, so keep on the sunny side! Terry

Chesapeake Destiny

I don't know if I mentioned it lately, but Book Three in my Chesapeake Heritage Series is in print and available as a print or e-book from at Bay Country Shop in Cambridge, MD and from me.

I have been looking forward to the release of this book, which tells the story of Jane Elliott, who marries Thomas Fitzjohn and moves away from the plantation Baron's Hope to the home her husband built for her and named Regret.

Jane suffers greatly from her husband's abuse and eventually is released from her harsh existence, but she is so beaten down and exhausted from caring for the plantation she inherits, she wonders if she will ever find love.

While her husband still lived, he commissioned a painting of Jane, but it is never finished. Little does Jane know it, but the wandering artist will bring more than the completion of her painting on his return to her plantation.

The novel is set against the backdrop of the Revolutionary War when the Eastern Shore of Maryland was the breadbasket for both the English and Yankee troops.

I hope you like this effort and look forward to the last book in the Chesapeake Heritage Series, which will be published in the new year.

In the meantime, keep on the sunny side, Terry

Life After Death?

Hello There,

Ten years ago my father passed during the Labor Day weekend, so it is always an interesting time for me concerning emotions.

I loved my father, you see, and I missed his funny determined attitude toward life. So I am always lonely for his cussing out in the shed.

But in another light, Dad had a good life, and apprently - a good death. Check out the orb over the steeple. It sure looks like a smiley face to me and so no one has yet proved to me that there isn't life on the other side. And once I realize this, I laugh because somewhere out in the cosmos my father is laughing over something too.

Keep on the sunny side,

Terry L. White

Glinda's Ghost, continued

I have been trying to post the cover of Glinda's Ghost and there seems to be a gremlin in the computer in regard to this awesome cover done by Dawn Tarr. This coloring book for pre-teens has a great story that teaches Melissa Dawn that Glinda is right - little girls need to love themselves! I don't think anyone can hear that too much.

So. I hope it works this time. Have a great holiday and keep on the sunny side. Terry

Glinda's Ghost

Oh My Gosh!

I was getting some things ready for a reading I will be doing in Snow Hill on November 7. I will share the evening with Jim Adcock who also has a new book to share and I am really excited about the chance to share the Chesapeake Heritage series with people here on the Eastern Shore, which has been the home of my heart ever since I landed on its shore in 1993. The good news is that the third book in the series is now in print and I will have some with me for the reading.

At any rate, when I moved here, I met a wonderful lady named Dawn Tarr and we hit it off right away. We even did a project - a coloring book called Glinda's Crystal Garden. They are pretty cool and each one has a crystal butterfly necklace. There are still a few around, but the message is pretty universal - you gotta love yourself.

So, Glinda lives. So much so, in fact, I have located my old Glinda files (which were on one of those 3.25 inch floppies! Remember them? I am back to work on what I hope will be a real book-sized volume. Wish me luck! Glinda is a very quirky lady indeed.

Wishing you happy reading - and keep on the sunny side. Terry
