    Lovely to know you are doing this again. Are you gonna attach a link to this story so we can read (or re-read?) Love you, Ronni

    Thanks, Ronni! I don’t have the “rights” to this story right now; they’ll revert to me next week when the book is released. At that point I’ll post the story here.

    You answered my question. I couldn’t find the story and thought it was me. Can’t wait to read the story. Love, Carol
