So, I’m super duper nervous! I’ve recently been asked by a fellow author and friend, Carlton Fisher, if I would like to join the North Country Arts Council for an art exhibit.

Soooo, I love researching religion, I love writing religion into my stories because I can twist the tales into something fantastical that makes people wonder.
