I am a writer. My works are featured and sold at through book sales. I have a few locations where I can be found on the internet but no website per se for any good reason of my works yet. Principally, following me on to Facebook (at, links visitors to other sites that are basically the same redundancy as the Facebook location. I hope to have a website someday, but that isn't in my immediate plans at this time. (Meanwhile, you may visit my other blogs at both -- which is a Blogger site by Google & also at -- which is another native of WordPress, which I believe may also be a Google company. But my Facebook page has a sidebar link set that will help you navigate to other pages which may or may not be included links on any of these (interesting) blogs. Have a happy day! (I wish I had an emoji for this bio. Very little else is interesting with me.)
