In the zany atmosphere created by #dangerousbuffoon so improbably making it to the White House (though not for long, it seems at this point,) a slew of hilarious news like none other keep surfacing. So, several times a day, I find myself with tears streaming down my face, not only because of the attacks on democracy, on the environment, on ObamaCare, on dedicated and brave civil servants, on th...

John Somehow I got referred to, and boy am I glad I did. You have written some interesting material. I am a retired pediatrician on Maui, and have been writing for kids for years, I had an agent when I was just starting but she died tragically before I even get started. Since helping kids was my life and I couldn't go it alone, I wrote story after story in two series, and tossed them in the closet. A writer friend told me I should self publish, since no agent or even publisher would take on a seventy-five year old author. I published SEAFOAM WAVEFOLLOWER two years ago, and I think a better one, DRAGON CENTRAL will be on Amazon within the month. Both are middle grade fantasy with b/w illustrations. One of the main characters is a young girl from ancient Sumeria, who caught up with her village in a time warp that dumped them on Deagon Central (juxtaposed with Earth in a parallel universe. Wish me luck. Aloha nui fro Maui.
