Bloggers PhotoThere really isn't much to tell that hasn't been covered in my poetry. Love this site, love the new friends I've made. I am a single woman, work full time, family grown and on their own. When I was in highschool all I wanted to do was write. Life got in the way. Now I have all the time I need to indulge my passion.

Jack Horne's Book


Blog Posted:6/26/2014 11:31:00 PM

For anyone that did not already know it our poet friend Jack Horne is also a novelist. I am almost halfway through his novel "Ghost Hunt" and find it fascinating. It's hard to put down. I bought my copy through Kobo but it is available through other e-book sites as well and I am sure the actual paper copies are out there to be purchased as well. So if you like mysteries and want to support a fellow souper I highly recommend this book. Kudos Jack, its awesome !!
