V for Voices

Well, I really dropped the ball on the a to z challenge. Maybe next month, I'll pick up all the letters I didn't get done this month. Maybe. Voices. I hear them all the time. My characters speak to me, they tell me their story and I am the scribe. In Mary Lynne's Dream, she... Continue Reading →
