Hi, thanks so much for wanting to chat with me. At the present time we – Narnia’s Children – are rehearsing for another tour – Europe this time. We're really excited.

And I’m really excited that friend, fellow blogger, and fellow writer Jane Risdon has invited me to her blog today to introduce Staci McKinney, who ‘starts’ in my new novella, Streets of Gold. She’s fifteen, she’s on…
Staci’s had to learn to do what she needs to do to survive. And sometimes, that means taking things from shops and restaurants, or dumpster-diving.
