Though it still feels like it’s a HUGE fib…but regardless that’s why I needed professional headshots. I started off the experience … Continue reading Adventures in Photography
I didn't expect to be making a post like this one...especially not after my last post. Another wonderful first occurred. My Flash Fiction piece Little Cracks has been picked up by Acidic Fiction. Don't know a lot of details yet, and I'm not sure I could process details anyway. I wrote my first book when … Continue reading March May be my New Favorite Month
