Sharon Lovejoy Kyleigh, I love the entire process, especially love doing research in depth. Each new discovery leads me down another pathway.

Once I begin to write, rather than just research and mull everything over, the words pour out like a spring freshet. I am always so amazed and grateful for this magical alchemy of thinking, research, and writing.

Best,

Sharon
