  1. I just came across your blog and I'm having fun reading through all your reviews. :)
    The Untitled historical fiction your working on sounds AMAZING! WWII is one of my very favorite era's and it's the primary one I write about. I'm always so happy to find other writers who have books they're working on set in the same time period! :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jesseca!
      I've always loved the '40s, and this story just seemed to appear all by itself. :) Crazy how writing can do that to you.
      Hope you have a great weekend!
