My Story 1 Appreciate this

After thirty-five years in service to people with disabilities I was diagnosed with MS and had to retire. But it's one of the best things that happened to me, i got to retire at 53 and when going through my closet I found my journals from the early eighties from when i first moved to Oregon.I wrote three novels from them starting when I lived in the woods in my tent doing timber inventory for the forest service in the remote Wallowa Mountains in eastern Oregon. My book;The Eve Chronicles in paperback book contains the three novels. The first book;From the Waters of Coyote Springs is about my days working as a timber cruiser in eastern Oregon. The second book Felix and Eve is when I was a caregiver for an elderly man who needed someone to live with him for the summer as he recovered from open heart surgery. He knew Al Capone and worked in the breweries of the notorious gangster in Chicago during Prohibition. The third book in The Eve Chronicles, is "The Arrangement" is about the now retired Eve, a baby boomer living in Eugene Oregon. every year she receives a letter with a skeleton key in it and she travels to Catalina Island to spend the summer with a former lover. She leaves her property in the hands of her friend Vinnie who lives in a yurt at the back of her property. Vinnie is in love with Eve but remains silent. All three books are also available separately in ebook format. http://dide22.wix.com/diane-devillers Check out my amazon page, under Diane DeVillers aka SmartyPants. Or my website
