Vacation? Maybe

I'm not going to start thinking or complaining about my life here. Not this time. However, the are a few things you need to know about my life, if you haven't figured it out by now. I'm married, happily. I have a full time day job that pays the bills and supports my creative habits.... Continue Reading →

The Life of Grace Dudley

The greatest weakness I have as a writer is finishing things. No one will ever read it if I don't finish it. I can't grow if I don't finish it.
