Deb Hockenberry Hi,
Thanks for adding me as a friend! I'm a children's author. I've been published twice on the internet. I am currently working on a historical fiction for YA. I have another WIP too. I'm working on an encouraging story for kids that have Multiple Slerosis. Science has recently discovered that kids get it too. Heck, I could've told the that 30-40 years ago!
Deb :-)
