Abigayle has been a writer ever since her mother taught her how to hold a pencil. However, she devoted more time to reading words with her green eyes than penning them with her left hand.

In that case, there really is no end to what we can do. Writing is ever changing, always expanding, never ending. As a writer, I get to be all of that, too.

For the Love of Libraries

On my last roadtrip, I got stranded at a library. That's the short story. The long story is that it got me thinking on how much I really do love libraries and why they still matter in today's society.


Roadtrip Story
I've never made it a goal to visit libraries on a roadtrip, with the exception of two presidential libraries. While on a 12-hour roadtrip from Texas to Iowa with my boyfriend and bro Read more of this blog post »

Abigayle Claire answered Isabel's question: Abigayle Claire
Martin Hospitality and Martin Legacy are the only two that I had originally planned and are both published now. If I do anything else, it'll be short. (The only one I've done like that so far is Snip and is available as a newsletter perk.)
