Author in a top hat

See explanation below…

As you all probably know, the path to getting a book from imagination to publication is not an easy (or short) one. I’ve had the idea for this particular book knocking around in my head for years, but I didn’t feel I was ‘good enough’ to write it. Then I realised that I was...

Summer's already half-way over, which is really hard for me to grasp. I love summer so much -- I live for those hot, sticky days that virtually everyone else loathes. I credit living in central Texas for the appreciation.
