Back To Work

penguinI’m back after a few weeks away from Indies Unlimited. Sure does feel good to be among friends, aspiring writers, already there writers and others again. While this site is not a “I went to the store yesterday” kind of blog site, I think it’s important to share with you what’s been happening in my life. In fact, it has a lot to do with writing.

Triple Dog DareTriple Dog Dare
by K.S. Brooks and Stephen Hise

Bianca was about to remove her sunglasses when one of the reporters yelled, “There he is!” prompting everyone to turn away.

Seeing this as a chance to escape unwanted attention from Mike Gillette, Terri grabbed Bianca’s elbow and began gently urging her away from the throng.
