Live In The Moment

Live In The Moment

Can You Handle the Truth?

Hi all.  July 5th marked my third month of being published, and I've done things I never thought I would do.  I've hosted a jazz show, been a guest on an Internet radio program, did a presentation at a library, met with a book club group, and so on.
