Silence is… Golden?

Hi Everyone, Well, I haven’t blogged for a while. It wasn’t because I stopped writing. Actually, I started writing with a friend under the pen name of Moira Byrne. It has been great fun, and we have two books out and a third on the way. The fourth is currently being written. I am really […]
