N is for new stuff, coming up #AtoZChallenge

I thought it might be fun to share a few of the new things that I’ve got coming up.  New books, new projects, and how we’re moving forward with our lives right now.  My mental health has held me back for quite a long time, so I thought I’d share some of my plans, not […]
