Other Canis Latrans recognitions have been given to LIFE AS ET and When Abby Met Henry, a short creative non-fiction love story, better known as WHEN HARRIET MET HARLOW.
Other awards included my first published article on Texas History in Texas History Magazine in 1955, which chronicled life experiences of my Grandmother Baker in 1800s Texas.
