A great day

Four years ago, I held in my hand, a copy of my first published book of poetry. Nothing beats that feeling, of holding your words, between the covers of a book. Today is another red letter day in my life, and although I have yet to hold a physical copy of it in my hands,... Continue Reading →

I soon discovered that not only does she write interesting stories about characters that sound like someone I might meet and whose company I would... Continue Reading →
