Short Story

Grab a hot cup of tea and check out my newly posted short story.  It is fictional, set on a wintery day (thus the need for that hot tea), and, yes, inspirational.

A Love Letter

Though I have two books waiting for me on my Kindle app, I prefer holding a book in my hand (besides, my favorite place to read is in the bathtub–a dangerous place for my iPhone). I have books stacked about waiting their turn to have center stage, even if for just a short time, in…
