Stupid Fox I have one big problem with you as an author, Mrs. Wright.

You've SPOILED me. When I finish your latest, what exactly am I supposed to do? Especially knowing your tendency for cliffhanger endings... I feel the 4th book will be sorely pined over until it is finished!


Barbara Wright Glad to see you here!


Stupid Fox Thanks for accepting my friend request! I am honored ^^
Ee!
