A-Z ChallengeYes, it’s finally time to reveal my theme for the A-Z Challenge this year.

In 2011, I didn’t have a theme. I posted mainly on the themes of this blog: writing and social anxiety.

In 2014, I highlighted authors, including some of my new friends all published by Crooked Cat.

Happy Birthday!

I’ve been keeping silent for most of my life. It’s time to talk.

So tune in again, keep in touch and don’t suffer in silence.

So much has happened since then. Thank you for being part of it.
