Variations of Authors
Consider authors to be like meals. They are meant to nourish and feed a reader's imagination. Variations of authors range from the fancy etiquette of classical and modern day literature to the drive through garbage meant to provide a taste and little more than that. I offer up that as well as literary authors, we … Continue reading Variations of Authors
