  1. Happy Birthday dear Bette! I know its late but better than never. Lol! Hope you had a wonderful celebration.


  2. Hi, Bette,
    I didn’t realize you have been in the RRBC for eight years. That’s wonderful. It speaks of your loyalty to the club.
    Wishing you all the best at the Holiday POP-UP and a blessed end of year with your family and friends.

  3. Hi Bette, many congrats on having your book selected as RWISA BOM for September. I have just downloaded a copy of My Maine and look forward to becoming absorbed in it. Have a great month and hope you sell loads of copies. 🙂

  4. Hi, Bette, I read and reviewed your book, Amazing Matilda. I have always had a fascination with butterflies and their amazing journeys. Visiting a butterfly sanctuary in Panama was spectacular.

    1. Hi, Dennis. Thanks so much for your support! I’ve always had a fascination for butterflies too–I grew up in northern California and monarch butterflies have always been special to me. I discovered in 1994 that monarchs were threatened and that they were an important indicator species when it came to the health of our environment I knew I had to write a book about them. I’m a citizen scientist and report my sightings (Eastern Monarchs)to Journey North each year. Husband and I spent six years in California in the 1990s and had a chance to visit the Western Monarchs at a wintering sight at Pismo Beach. 🦋🐛 Thanks for all you do to advocate for the homeless.
