INFORMATION
I love to write and have published multiple books. I can't say I sell a lot because I don't work at it. I love the challenge of creating whatever form of writing it is. Fanstory has been a part of my writing experience since the beginning and I found I can't stay away. Shirley

Shirley McLain: I have been gone for awhile and I have to say I have missed this site. I've seen a few old faces and a lot of new ones. I've posted Chapter one of my latest book writing attempt. It's a YA fiction called Thomas Gommel Learns About Abuse. I look forward to reading and reviewing some writings. Have a blessed day.
