Blog Chain: My Writing Process and Current Projects

Blog Chain: My Writing Process and Current Projects

People who read my blog probably already know I’m a huge fan of Laura VanArendonk Baugh, who writes fantasy and historical fantasy and also happens to live close enough to me that we hang out on a regular basis.
