Liz I'm proud to be your friend! Love your comments on Storymakers. I've started reading again (can't read and write at the same time, as I have absolutely no willpower when I get into a story), and your books are on my list--mental. Haven't formalized it on this venue. Note to self, etc. How do you get set up as an author here?
