      1. I am reading The Heart Stone Chronicles. You are a wonderfully gifted writer. Your plot engages me. Your have created characters I connect with. Your descriptions are full of great adjectives and images. It is fun to remember the posts you wrote in Florida about the swamp and the mists and the horse hole. I feel like I was there when your book was a twinkle in your eye. Now it is in print. I am so very proud of you. ❤
