Behind the Scenes

    This year has been a slow one for me in the writing department. It’s not that I lack desire, believe me, it’s there. It’s just that sometimes life and all its chaos gets in the way. And that is exactly where I am at. I made an informed decision in the latter months of 2016 to slow down [...]

My Musings

Exclusive First Chapter: ASH
