Matlacha resident J.D. Daniels was inducted this month into the Southwest Florida Chapter of PEN Women, a professional organization for writers and visual artists.
Daniels was sponsored by Pine Island resident Marsha Perlman, author of "Spirit Life." Daniels will have a book of poetry, "Say Yes," released this spring. "Through Pelican Eyes," a cozy mystery set in Matlacha and Pine Island will be released in late fall. Her book, "The Old Wolf Lady: A Biography" can be checked out at the library.
