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'm so frustrated I could scream and chew nails at the same time. I had chapter 30 finished, ready to post today 5/8/22. It disappeared even with auto backup. If anyone has any ideas on how to find this exceptional work :) let me know. By next week, I'll have found it or rewrote the chapter. Shirley

Shirley McLain: I have started a new blog called Shirley's Books and More. It has the concept of anything to do with books. Right now, I'm in the middle of a three part series of writing flash fiction. If you would like to add content or whatever, just give me a shout. I do have to build followers, It has to start somewhere. Take a look at Blessings to all. Shirley
