So, one of my closest friends passed, too. I even used his name and some of our conversations in my story SAoD. Troy Swallow, you are missed already. By your wife, ex-wife, daughters, and me.
Just couldn't muster the drive to write. Over the past couple of years, that is the third death of a person inside my closest dozen people in my life. I promised my editor I would get back to writing. He wants me to finish all of my stories...no promises on order, just getting something out at this point seems more important. So, stay tuned!
