To all my dear readers, let me take this time to thank you for your support throughout my writing career. I’m now coming to you for a purpose.

Honestly, I’ve been ignoring my TBR list for far too long. American … More As an Author, it’s important to pick up a book once in a while

This is Tony This is Rhodie Two guinea pigs I’ve had since they were born are getting re-homed today. We have 4 piggies in total, two girls, and two boys (the two pictured above) in different cages. Due to space logistics, I can’t put the boys cage higher than it already is, so whenever I … More Personal Post Time: Saying bye bye to two furry friends.
So, now that I got that out of my system, I’m gonna get my butt back to writing my second novel.
