2018 Rose Glen Literary Festival

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the Rose Glen Literary Festival with several of my friends from the SCC Writer's Group. I'll admit, I really didn't want to go Friday afternoon. Why?

Some of you thought I may have crawled into a hole after my last post, but no, I'm still alive and kicking.  I admit, that bad review really threw me through a loop, but no matter what, I knew I couldn't give up this hobby of mine.  I love it too much, and even if... Continue Reading →
