Happy birthday to Odin’s Shadow!

Happy “book birthday” to my first book, Odin’s Shadow! What a wonderful ride this year has been–I’ve made some amazing friends, laughed and cried, and learned so much on this epic journey called “So You Want to be a Published Author.” I’m so grateful to Debby Gilbert at Soul Mate Publishing for giving me a chance.
