I recently heard from author Joyce Bishop Morris, who has Millsap roots, and her autobiography has been published. As some may remember, her Annie series of books are based upon her Millsap grandmother’s life. Joyce’s autobiography, “Running on Empty,” is the final book in the Annie set.
As the book examines this overcomer’s abusive marriage, which began while she was a teen, and how she saved herself and her four small children, it was written with the hope that someone being abused might read it and come to the realization that there is hope and that they can also overcome. Mrs. Morris says that if it helps one person, then the goal will have been met.
In its first few days out, “Running On Empty” hit number one in “Hot New Releases,” which surprised and thrilled the writer. This ebook is available through Amazon for Kindle or PC. Joyce has several other books in the works she hopes to have out soon through Kindle.
This lady was so very gracious when she visited Millsap in 2011 for a meet the public and book signing event, and it’s great that we can now read the ending to the Annie series while looking forward to other books from her.
Reminder: Arnold Garrett’s retirement party from Millsap Water Supply is Feb. 19 at 6 p.m. at the Mesquite Pit. RSVP by Feb. 12 by calling the water office at 940-682-4416.
Happy Valentine’s Day and thanks for reading!
