  • I received an APEX 2019 Award for Excellence in the category Writing - Writing Series for my three-part series "A Special Place." Jayne Ann Krentz wrote of it, "A vividly written memoir focused on a rental cottage on the Connecticut seashore, the series illustrates how a summer house can become so much more than a vacation getaway. Over time, Ida’s special place was transformedinto a destination for family and friends. Click on the Award logo to read "A Special Place."
