I’m so grateful to have this task behind me! It took quite a bit longer than I expected, largely due to how poorly I wrote five years ago compared with now.

My New Novel Is Now Available on Amazon!

My blogging friend Tina Frisco, just launched another book, Vampyrie, on Amazon! Now before you say, ” Not another vampire book,” like I almost did, take a moment to read the book’s description. Tina weaves in the Valkyries of Viking/Norse mythology to give us a new spin on the vampire legends.

Tina is a faithful blogger who takes the time to read, review and re-blog posts. Thanks, Tina, I am looking forward to reading this new book!

Escape from Reality, Then Re-entry

"When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other?" Escape vs. Reality, is really the question. My mom put books into my hands when I was 4 years old. There is a photo of me at age two, laying on the floor …
