The Iron Writer

Last fall my dear friend K.A.DaVur (author of Hunter the Horrible, a fantastic tale written for children of vampires and friendship) roped me into joining her in this writing group. I was understandably concerned as I am not a professional.  But the frightful authoress insisted.  And I joined.   I took my first challenge and won.…

Welcome Back!
