Anne Gillis Benedetto BlWt

This book was a labor of love. It is dedicated to my courageous friend, Anne Gillis Benedetto, who passed on January 3, 2017. Everyone who knew Anne loved her. She had an infectious smile, wit, and the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known. She will be missed every day. This book, I hope, will help to keep her memory alive. I think Anne would have liked this book. I only wish I could have given her a copy before she died.

There are fifteen stories in this collection. There is something for everyone here.

Book Blurb:

A collection of short stories that covers several genres including romance, grief/loss, mystery, suspense, sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal. This book is dedicated to a courageous friend who passed this year. The first story was specially created for her and became the inspiration for the title of this book.

Thank you for stopping by. If you knew Anne please drop me a line some time (jjspina(at)myfairpoint(dot)net) . I would love to hear from you. If you purchase this book I would greatly appreciate your thoughts and reviews wherever you bought it. I always say, receiving reviews is like getting early Christmas presents! I love to unwrap them!

Blessings & hugs,



My first review of this book here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Collection of Short Stories, March 8, 2017
By Michele Rolfe
This review is from: An Angel Among Us: (A Short Story Collection) (Paperback)
The stories are tear jerkers & thought provoking. Very well written & hard to put down! I got caught up in the characters & felt like I was a part of their world. I was gifted a book in return for my honest review.

Another wonderful review!!

on March 11, 2017 –  5 out of 5 stars
Format: Kindle Edition

Author Janice Spina is a prolific and eclectic writer, whose creativity knows no bounds and whose books entertain readers of all age groups. Having had the pleasure of reading many of Author Spina’s earlier works, I looked forward to reading her newest creation and am happy to report that her first-ever short story compilation is ever so gratifying.

“An Angel Among Us” is fabulous. The characters that populate the short stories are from all walks of life, real and well-developed. Their touching stories resonate, as the protagonists confront and face up to life’s many challenges. Loss, regret, love and hope are ingredients you’ll find in abundance in this stirring and heart-string tugging book. Highly recommended!

A special ‘thank you’ to both of these reviewers!
