Viorica (Violet) and I recently collaborated on "One Little Christmas Tree" -- my children`s story about the fate of a scion to the BIG Christmas Tree that ends up every year at Rockefeller Center. To say the very least, Viorica is both conscientious as a collaborator (thousands of miles away!) and diligent in her craft.
