I am so excited that my newest book, Tattered Tents & Whispered Wishes is finally out. When I first started this book I did so with the understanding that it was unlike anything I had written before and I am thrilled with how it turned out. It's a strange, dark tale that isn't necessarily horror… Continue reading TATTERED TENTS & WHISPERED WISHES Is HERE!
This small tease is taken from the very beginning of my upcoming book TATTERED TENTS & WHISPERED WISHES.
