    Darn Tootin'

    Writing is in my blood, words circulate through my veins. That is how I write from the heart. I speak because I have something to say.

    I Love to Write

    I love to write and do so at every opportunity. I consider myself a hobby novelist because I do it in my spare time.  I would love to publish my first book.  Not necessarily for everyone else to read but for myself.  I put a lot of work, heart, and soul into it. It...
