A New Year Brings Reflection

Looking back, 2014 was an eye-opening experience for me, a blessing often in disguise. It has taught me that the road ahead is very, very long. Although I've come farther than I expected in a few short years, this is only the first rest-stop on my journey. There is still so much to do.

An Update on My 2015 Calendar….

My 2015 Literary Cats Calendar Kickstarter project will run until this Friday night, November 21st, 10:00PM EST.

Leftover calendars will be sold in my Etsy shop.
