Future Freelancer in the Making

When I say I started writing young, I mean it. See picture above. My first ever story, I now know, is called micro-fiction, was written at age seven. But, my first love is poetry. Maybe it’s the need to get things down on paper all at once. Maybe its the cadence of the lines and…… Continue reading Future Freelancer in the Making

In any given week, I read between 2-3 books with at least another 2 in the wings either half read or in the “to be read soon” pile. Thankfully, I read FAST.

But, most…… Continue reading Crack open a good book and find a new favorite on our Book Review List 2018
