There are days–like today–I quite aptly channel Clint Eastwood. Go ahead, make my day. Of course, […]

No, I Don’t Have Stage Fright!

Hey there. Yes, I did promise to post a short story today. However, that’s not happening. So sorry. I don’t have stage fright, just a little glitch with my copy and not enough time to fix it today as I have to get to another commitment. I DO promise it tomorrow, and I’ll even do […]
