I just notice that I will have been with BC for 20 years next month. Wow! I don't frequent this site too much anymore, but I still connect with some folks on FB, Instagram, and Goodreads. BC has been really important to me in so many ways.

Currently finishing up a self-help book on depression. Hoping to launch it this year.
I finished my memoir, but am now working on a rewrite.
I'm also working on a book based on my great-grandfather's diary, but

I have a new business - - in which I offer services that help strengthen the bond between animals and their people. I also have an editing business, Shaded Path Publishing. Website coming on that one.

I love to read, but don't always have the time or the motivation to do so. You won't see a lot of books from my permanent collection on here; I like to use BC for those books I've read (or am reading) or for those that I've collected for a challenge/project and plan to release only.

I'm currently collecting cancelled postage stamps of all denominations and types (all countries) to raise funds for research for those with chiari malformation and syringomyelia. See, or I was diagnosed with a chiari malformation in April of 2005, and underwent brain surgery in the latter half of 2006 to repair it. My friends here were some of my biggest supporters in my recovery! All postage stamps should be in relatively good condition (not torn or cut) and have a 1/4" to 1/2" border around them.
