Reviewing The Tube Riders

Not yet…But I am halfway through. This is a long book. 613 pages. It starts out a little slow, but that’s just to set the scene. Once I was past that…Wow!  I have been on the most Amazing roller coaster ride of my life!  There are twists and turns and ups and downs, and loop da loops! …

Teasers of Things to Come!

DIGITAL CAMERA

Throughout this year I will be working on a book featuring short stories and poems from pictures that I have taken, paintings my oldest son has done,  and the word prompts from my writer’s group. I want it to depict the four seasons, spring, summer, fall, and winter. So I thought I’d give you a little …
