They say you should write what you know, so it’s no accident that Jade and I have many things in common. When I had the idea for the book, I was struggling, trying to build up a blog. I was frustrated and exhausted because there was always more to do than I could get […]
While I see other people write posts about Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, I can’t do that. Why, you ask? Because I’ve never seen them. In fact, I’m not even sure what they are about (okay, I know TWD is about zombies, but that’s about it). But I do know about one […]
