Author has written 5 stories for Romance.

it's not a matter of where you are going, but rather the people who are along for the journey

RECENT NEWS:

4.8.13

So the writing bug continues! I've written the next two chapters for There and Back Again and I really want to push forward but I probably should go to bed. I probably won't post them til next week, as I want to see how long this writing streak will last and usually revisions derail me, but trust me, it's very exciting. I haven't gotten past the fifth chapter of a story for a few years now so I am over the moon about it!!
