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.
