message 4: by Rusty

Rusty Nugent Hello Elizabeth,

It's a pleasure to meet you. I would love to become your friend. Add me and I'll accept it. It's great that you like reading. You can go just about anyway. :) I am 41 years old, I have two children 21 & 19. I have been in a 20 year relationship with my son's mother, Mary. I love to read all kinds of books but mostly I write because I have to work on my third novel in my Moonwarriors series. I write dark, horror, action, adventure, romance, fantasy books. Moonwarriors Guardians of the Night

May the power of the wolf protect you,
