In #Gratitude for the 400th Review of my #Memoir “Empty Chairs” It is #Free From Oct 8th, till Oct 12th. #RRBC #IARTG #WritingCommunity.


Hello and welcome.

How does it feel when the reviews of your work click over to 400 on

Now there’s a question I never believed I’d ask myself! My first reaction was stunned. I sat here looking at that number and shaking my head in amazement. Then this tough old girl had a damned good cry.


Because these people I may never meet in person, made the time in their lives to read of my journey. Then they sat and shared their feelings in a review, and many of them gave me a glimpse into their own journeys. I count myself forever grateful to them. I have been inspired by so many of them as they shared their wisdom.

There are so many marvelous people that have stepped forward and offered their unrelenting support on my writing journey. Many of them are fellow members of #RRBC Rave Reviews Book Club.

I’d like to share a review with you that continues to make me smile through grateful tears. My dear friend and fellow author Gwen Plano made this wonderful clip.

In celebration of the 400th Review, I have listed “Empty Chairs” FREE From October 8th thru October 12th.

Again, my warmest thanks for your kindness and support.

  1. Soooz, this book touched me and changed my life forever, as I am sure it has many. The raw truth of having to live on the streets at such a tender young age is both heartbreaking and inspiring! I’m sharing this everywhere!!

    1. Jan, my friend thank you so much. Your support has been wonderful and your kind review touched me. If this book helped just one person to come to a new understanding of so many street kids, and the reasons they find themselves in that situation, then I am forever grateful. Thank you again, my friend. 💕

  2. I can’t say how happy I am for you Soooz! I think people connected to your bravery for now only sharing it but being able to write about it. I know I did, plus you are an amazing writer, too. All of that together. I hope more and more people get to share your story. Sending lots of hugs.
