So, in addition to being an incredibly kickass writer, I am also a music lover (as you might have gathered from posts like THIS or THIS).

So, I'm sitting here, right, and I'm listening to the Counting Crows. If you don't know about my love affair with the Counting Crows, then I'm taking this moment to clue you in on that right now.

All You Have Is Your Fire
I've been told since my near-toddler age that I was a natural born storyteller. I impressed preschool teachers with my ability to give stick figure paintings a story with a beginning, a middle, and an end; an apparently rare ability to find in a child that age. Learning to read and write was a blessing,… Continue reading All You Have Is Your Fire
