I feel like I’m prefaced so many thoughts and sentences with the phrase: “with everything that’s going on…” But, it’s no less relevant or true. So many things are happening everywhere and it’s impossible not to be affected by it. This is the time of month when I would share the list of books I’mContinue reading “What I’m Learning this Month”

Why I’m NOT Going to Age-Down my Novel
Let me have my whimsy. I think the world needs more of it!

What I’m Reading this Month: April
After the longest March ever, we’ve finally made it into April. Time seems to have resumed a somewhat normal pace. At least in my house. We seemed to have settled into self-isolation/social-distancing/quarantine groove⎯as much as one can settle in. As always, books are a source of comfort and escape during this harrowing time.
