Importance of Hobbies

I don't know what many of you do for hobbies, mainly since you don't comment (*wink wink*), but I have a few of my own. Aside from reading and writing which you know about, I love video games. I love being able to immerse myself in an interactive story. I can be a LAPD detective ...

Let It Snow…

What is Chicago but a wonderful place filled with humid summers, gigantic skyscrapers, and bitterly cold winters? After having a little break from the crappy weather, the weather gods have seen fit to blanket the Second City with powder once again.

It has been almost 10 months since I first published Taking Chances and I still am finding those errors. Every single time, it ...
