Insomnia and the Soothing Magic of Patricia Briggs

Posting this picture just because I think it’s funny. Makes my kids laugh, too.  We all need a smile sometimes.  We had a nice holiday together but I was more than ready to jump back into writing work today.  Or I would have been.  For some reason, I didn’t sleep last night. At all.  It was one […]
