So, I think I’m an actor now?

I think I’ll go ahead and add “actor” to my resumé, not that I’ll be submitting a resumé to anyone anytime soon … if ever.

Thirty-some-odd authors, including myself, enjoyed meeting the fine folks who came to the Clark Pleasant Branch of the Johnson County Public Library in Whiteland, Indiana, on March 11.

I rarely check out reviews anymore, but happened upon the Amazon page for the book earlier this month. Staring me right in the face were two new really nice reviews that had... Continue Reading →

It was like going out in the sun for the first time in the spring. Warm, comfortable, soothing ... except I didn't get burned.
