All About the Paranormal

October! I get really excited when I flip the calendar from September to October. There’s just so much to love about this autumn month. First, well, it’s autumn. Who doesn’t love autumn?

We all answer the same four questions. So, here are mine. #1 What am I working on? I’m on high gear right now … Continue reading My Writing Process
