The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek was first published in 2015. The award winning novel was released as an audiobook on May 1, 2018.


BOOK BLURB: " An aging man named James thinks he sees gold in the Dutch Buffalo Creek. 

Instead he finds a bayonet that had been buried in the mud for over two centuries. 

A Hessian soldier abandoned the blade during the War for American Independence. 

The bayonet prompts James to search through a den full of artifacts and books to discover the meaning of the metal. 

His search leads him to discover spiritual treasures."

I actually have a collection of keychains. I started collecting them when I was young. Though I don't pick up many these days, I still like to look at the ones I have from time to time.

I collect keychains, Tim Curry and Stephen King, Hubby collects firetrucks. I like my keychains because they are easier to store. My books are my pride and joy tho. I also collect autographs :) 

4. I have a collection of lighted miniature houses that I display in the fall and winter. Some were given to me by my parents and I purchased some myself, None are monetarily valuable but they offer me light in the shorter days of fall and winter and the remind me of other times!

I have several collections. I think my favorite one is the clip-ons I collected during high school and early adulthood. Those little things that look like stuffed animals - you squeeze the backs to open their hands and they hold on to something. I had so many that I crocheted a holder and criss-crossed it on my bedroom ceiling. I love them because they're so cute and varied. Thanks for the chance to win a prize.

Thank you so much. I was so surprised when this arrived in the mail and just in time for my birthday. Thanks again.

Happy Birthday Victoria!

Thank you for the gift certificate. I also enjoyed the short story, The Monarch and the Moth. I went to Amazon to leave a review but it wasn't listed there. I plan to now pass this book on to my grandchildren. They are in upper elementary and junior high and I think they will enjoy this.
