Hi. Hello. It's July???

My new friend, Mikey








My new friend, Mikey















It’s been a minute… or a few months. And oh so much has happened.

My book, STRUNG OUT, launched at the outset of the pandemic. It was surreal, shifting from the whirlwind of the book launch, which was cut short, then heading into lockdown.
