Sorry readers that I haven't been around for awhile.  My life has been chaos for the last two years.

I'm back in the writing world again.

I'm working on publishing a collection of short stories and a novel.

Stay tuned.

What does color say about you?

White           Traditional and conservative, associated with cleanliness
                        and simplicity.
Red                 Dynamic and bold.
Orange           Social and fun.
Bright green  Youthful and naive.
Dark green     Calm and reassuring implies wealth.
Blue                 Friendly, safe and secure; symbolizes loyalty 
                        and control.
Purple             Creative and unconventional; also suggests wealth
                        and sophistication .
Light pink      Soft and nurturing. 
Bright pink    Confident and assured. 
Brown             Solid, reliable and genuine; reflects stability and 
                        promotes communication.
