  1. I dropped by your site after joining the B-town Writer’s Guild (sort of checking up on my compatriots to see what sort of organization would have me as a member).

    I clicked the link to your “Delicious” story and absolutely fell in love with the little girl who with lofty ambitions and the talking duck who helps her dreams come true. If you’ll excuse my pseudo-Southern sexist slang – “That’s a good piece of writing you got there, ma’am.”

    I’ll be following you (not in a creepy way, but as a fellow writer looking to steal good ideas). It looks like you’ve been doing this blogging thing for some time.

  3. I just read your story The Wanderer King and got out of bed to see what else you had, hoping that you had expanded it into a novel. I’ll be reading your other stories.
