  1. Thanks for your great story about the “Molly, by Golly!” book launch party last weekend at Bookstore1Sarasota. It was a thrill to meet Captain Susan Pearson and all the other local firefighters. Plus who doesn’t dream of ‘driving’ a real, live firetruck? For more information about Molly Williams and the book I wrote about her, go to my author website, http://www.ochiltreebooks.com.
