Karen Hi Anna,

Weird, because I have the EXACT same resume as you. Except I only do stand-up for my Labs and they think I kill.

I'll check out your blog. And thanks for befriending me. Always great to meet another writer!

Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi Anna...loved your web true and weird all at the same time. LOL! Thanks for adding me as a friend. I'd love for you to visit my web site, I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. I’m co-authoring a novel with Patty Wiseman, another friend on Goodreads. We’ve known each other for over 30 years. While you're there, please sign the guestbook, too! There’s also a link to our book you can click on… This site is brand new and in the editing stage as is our story. Please visit it as well. We’re both very green, but we’ve met so many people on this site willing to reach out and offer advice or a guiding hand, we feel very blessed.
