So Long, And Thanks for All the Fish.

I didn’t put my name in the title, but I’m sure you have no doubt who’s writing here.

The year has come full circle, and although I could fill volumes with my thoughts about the process … what I’ve learned, the friends I’ve made, and how much I’ve loved this year at the debutante ball, I think it far more fitting to end my posts the way they started.

Besides, if a picture is worth a thousand words, I’ll say far more this way.

Being a debut author is a little like a reef.

Seen from a distance, the experience is lovely.
