Exploring whether or not my art features ‘enough’ disability

Seneca quickly discovered that she bit-off much more than she could chew, but with Angel’s editing help “Trapped” is a fun, modern romance novel. Unlike most romances this one featuresContinue reading “the journey towards the perfect cover”
