Keeping it short and sweet … and giving books away!

This past Autumn, I accomplished two major-to-me things: I “won” NaNoWriMo, and I completed a sweet Christmas story. <3 My NaNo story is now being edited, so talking about that must wait. 😉  Last year, I had a rough Christmas.

An FAQ About the Bennet Wardrobe

Much has been made of the to-ings and fro-ings of the Bennet daughters as they navigate the Bennet Wardrobe Universe.
