Around The World With The Writers Bureau

November 4th, 2016

WorldHi folks,

It’s been a while since I wrote anything here. So, how y’all keeping? Everybody well?

Things have changed a bit for me. Most notably – our youngest has started high school (and, fingers crossed, he seems to be alright). So, with a view to keeping the wolf from the door, I’ve said farewell to my days as a house-husband and started work here at the Writers Bureau – in the office.
