Hey guys, you can write me anytime! It's

Take Care on the Journey,

Second Book in Process. "Attic Secrets"

"Attic Secrets" is being created in my mind and looks to be an imaginary place to escape everyday stress, problems and people. There is no limit to what we will find in the different rooms, closets, nooks and crannies of our secret attic.

In your wildest dreams, during your lowest moments, after the greatest highs, you will always want to come back and climb the magic ladder into the welcome and accepting world of a magical, golden hideaway.
