Sometime in June, 1997, the very first novel written by the author
"Starless Starr: A Story of Heartbreak, Challenge and Glory" was
given an award, by Brown Books held at Bent Tree Country Club,
Dallas Texas on May 14, 2015. Her song "Starless Starr"
interpreted by a popular Dallas singer, Farle Lutian, was played
while she walked towards the stage, and after she delivered her
speech. That award inspired the author to write and compose
again. (A video of the award is on LitaTCruz You
