No One Needs To Hear It

Yesterday we sat outside the restaurant eating our hamburgers in the car.

Here’s a repost all about how I don’t like being categorized as one type of writer or another. I can’t choose between genres and I can’t pretend to be one thing. I’m multi-facetet, so take what you like and leave the rest. We try to sort people into boxes and when they don’t fit, we […]
