Resources are always changing so stop by often, and bring your cuppa with you. Leave me an email, as I like to hear from my readers or folks who may not read a whole lot, but like to dialogue about life's issues. I've chosen some important resources to share with you, hoping you'll find them interesting. You'll also meet some of my friends from whom I've had the privilege to learn, as well as those whom I have mentored. Please leave your comments. If there are other topics you'd like to hear about, I'll respond or link you to some of my writing friends. They'll have the answers, for sure. Every writer appreciates literary judges and committees who read and critique their work. I invite you to check out their links as well.
