Have you heard anything about “Mirth and Musings” by Sandi Hoover & Jim Tritten?

The award-winning writing team of Sandi Hoover and former naval aviator Jim Tritten deliver their fifth collaboration as they explore what makes us laugh and a few even serious essays on such subjects as running away from home when overwhelmed.

Readers’ Reviews about Mirth and Musings

“This is not the first book I have read by the team of Hoover and Tritten. And I sure hope there will be more coming. They work in tandem whether writing short stories or a full-length book. You can feel a positive energy they bring to a project like this collaboration. The stories in this book made me laugh and ponder life’s big questions. One story, really a love story, I guess, even presents a tender mystery for the reader to solve. Very original. Good read, I say!” ~ Kathy
