      Great web site Andrea. You have been very open with your bio and that is refreshing. Love the way your books are also laid out. And I feel privileged that we had a sneak peak of your latest cover before it got any ‘air’ time. Well, I must say, you really are a computer macnerd.
      Best Regards Always.

    I love reading your thoughts here , too. It’s like getting a regular hit of one of my favourite writers in between those long haul waits for the next epic novel. Keep them coming.
