I am a college graduate who loves to drink coffee and wine (not at the same time of course). Dark chocolate is my vice and Jane Austen is my inspiration! I am a recently published author and would love to get my name out there.

If you have time or interest please look up my book "Steel Tears" by Marie Bishop at amazon.com!
