Flowers of Grace by Teresa Hirst

Anna, I will provide an Epub, Kindle or PDF version of Flowers of Grace to a winner from the comments to this post. Don’t forget to leave your email.

Teresa, what makes you passionate about writing?

Characters make me passionate about writing. I’m an emotional person and pretty reactive, even though I’m working to curb that.

At those times I focus on that project full-time. But that project will also go through stages that are (more…)
