    Thank you Danuta. I love your website! Dan did a really good job setting it up, but it is the words that fill it that make it something special. I really enjoyed the section on spirituality.
    I would love it if you added a stumbleupon so that I can share it with friends.


  11. Danuta says:


    I am not sure how to add stumbleupon.

    Give me some time to figure it out and in the meantime
    please, feel free to share my blog with your friends.

    Danuta, your blog is wonderful. Can’t wait for your novel to come out. You are truly an inspiring person. 911 was a shock to us all and the questions you ask are the same ones most of us asked. We can never understand who would do these things. I even rescue and release bugs, so I can’t imagine intentionally killing innocent people. I will be anxious to read what you have written.

  19. Danuta, your blog is wonderful. Looking forward to read your novel.
    My first novel — Where the Willow Grows in Transylvania — will be published also by Tate Publishing. I was born and raised in Transylvania, Romania. I think we have a lot to share. Many blessings to you!

    • Danuta Hinc says:

      Yes, I checked your site–your novel sounds very interesting. Looking forward to reading it. You are the first person from Transylvania in my life. Much to learn!
