Lisa I am honored to be on the friend's list of an author who is successful at what she does and works so diligently at her craft. Besides, she seems like a darn, nice person, not to mention interesting and passionate. :)

Glad to find you here, Jeff. Good luck with your project. It does take perserverance!


Jeffrey Crimmel I am honored to be on the friends list of a writer who has been at it for a while and who has seen success at what she does. Most of the other writers like me are either on their first attempt or plugging along hoping to get another one out before the well runs dry. I waited 30 years before putting the thoughts of my travels down and I know that I may have a one and out shot at writing but the journey was worth it.
