the book

My life for the past couple of months has basically revolved around the book I'm writing.  Things are finally starting to come together.  We've edited through chapter nine (out of ten) and I just finished my last photo shoot today.  YES!!  It's been a lot of work, but very rewarding and I know I will be absolutely over the moon when I see it in print.  So, I wanted to answer a few questions I've  (read more …)
