Phones rang off the hook!

“‘I was spellbound,’ one listener said to me. And so was I! (I was so taken with her and her story that I forgot to have her choose the caller who won today’s copy of her book.) Laurie has done things most of us only dream about, and she has the ability to draw “word pictures” that put us right there with her in the adventures. Another caller said, ‘What insight!’ If she’s available, I’ll have her on the air with me again sometime soon!”
