I have heard it said a million times, “teens will be teens, and that is what they do.” While I understand the statement to some degree (I have a teenager still at home, one in university, one out of the house, teens constantly in and out of my home), I do not agree with it.

What was your proudest professional moment? Many of us belong to groups including social media groups.

The lady, Beverly Hutton, had been in Barnes and Noble and purchased Mischief in the Mushroom Patch. She spent a few minutes visiting with me and left. I remember specifically

Introductions took place and his daughter, Nicolette Anspach, sent me a
I’ve been a writer of sorts for years and not by choice. It’s true; never set out to be a writer. Writing can be both rewarding and become a brutal chore within the confinements of few pages. It depends on the moment. For some, an idea becomes an instant outline for a potential novel. And
Time is never on my side; I must have said this a million times, especially these days. Being a publisher takes a lot of my time, most of it, but being an author makes it worth it. Part of the perks of being an author is meeting wonderful new people when you least expect
