COLLEEN CHESEBRO: A Great Twitter Surprise!

I am honored and blessed to be featured on Sarah Mallery’s blog today. If you haven’t met Sarah, you will want to pay her visit. ❤


About two years ago, I met this wonderful blogger/reviewer/author on Twitter.

One thing led to another, and not only was she reviewing my books on her blog, bless her heart, she was featuring me as well.
