Hope you all have a lovely Christmas season!

Thankful Thursday: Thanksgiving Edition

Annie Blogs.

Hey everybody! Today I’m over at Annie Blogs! See what she has to say about me!

I met Annie at the She Speaks writer’s conference in North Carolina. My writing mentor, Shannon Primicerio and Annie are good friends, and Shannon introduced me to her. I was fortunate enough to talk to her for a couple of minutes in between seminars. She is a hoot! Annie was kind enough to let me email her with any questions I have about blogging.

So, go check out her blog!

And when you're done, come back here and head over to Real Teen Faith to read my article/interview: "A New Normal".
