Story Rewind

Readers often ask me what is my favorite story. I tell them Brittle as a Bird because it is one of the most personal stories I've written. The character, Allen, was based upon a dear friend. The story is dedicated to him. Take from this story one message- No matter how dark the storm, don't ever give up. I'm also including in the Story Rewind the sequel, A Bridge to Yesterday. Don't forget to email me with your thoughts.
