WitchLit Wednesday: Fermata Cellars

Three things I enjoy: a glass of wine, supporting local farmers, and folklore. Author Gwen Clayton combined all three into an intriguing and entertaining offering of WitchLit.

Let me begin by saying I wanted to be an author since I was younger, but nearlyContinue reading “What Inspired my Writing?”

Ready for some River Magic?

I was going to post this several weeks ago, but the time wasn’t right.

She’sContinue reading “RIVER MAGIC Characters During Covid-19”
