My author bio might need some work. That said: I’m drawing a blank!

And when I say might need some work, what I mean is really needs a complete overhaul. Maybe not so much my “About Me” page.  I put legitimate effort into that.  Not that I don’t put legitimate effort into everything (Okay.  Most things.  95% or so of the time).  But I sat and thought long and […]
