Frank Lewis Dear Heidi: I am not very knowlegeable about working the computer and I wondered what your interests were?


I scribble a little fiction on a historical back ground and have fun with my series starting with Frontier justic - 1835

I have done several books so far and my web is rumpah.com

Heidi Thomas Thanks, Chester. It does take a bit of time, but it's kind of fun.
