In addition to information about my books and writing, you will find the following:
I write flash fiction of one thousand words or less. I post the stories on the Blog page. When possible, these pieces will flesh out different parts of Tenderfoot’s backstory.
I host a feature for other authors called “Writers And Their Chosen Settings.” Individual authors discuss their choice of setting and the meaning behind it.
