Author Tag…You’re it!

Good friend and fellow author Alicia Dean has a brand-new web site up, and to celebrate its launch, several of us are playing author tag.

Six Sentence Sunday ~ May 6

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday! I’m happy to join a bunch of talented authors who share just six sentences of one of their stories. I’m continuing with Surrender to Sanctuary, the story of FBI Agents David and Anna who go under cover in a BDSM club to solve a murder.

I’m not sure when I began to fear public speaking, but that terror of getting in front of a group, or just voicing an opinion, has always been with me.
