Location: My Imagination

I write the stories that I want to read. That was explained to me as an excellent reason for writing. My Muse and I have a daily discussion on what should be written next and most of the time we agree. Follow 'us' on Twitter to see how those conversations go. I am hopefully going to be having more than my thoughts and book reviews. Who knows what will be next? Follow along and find out.
