That is, until the school counselor decides Faith would be the best person to show around new student, and fellow senior, Colman Nightingale. So many things don’t make sense about this.

What is this guy doing transferring so close to graduation? How does that even work?

Bear’s Lullaby – October 18, 2019
This is likely to be the only bedtime book I release. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I wrote her a lullaby called Little Cub. My husband loved it so much, he suggested I get an illustrator to draw some pictures and release it as a children’s book. Shortly after Mary was born, I went to Upwork (I think it was called something different back then), and hired a gal by the name of Shayne Hood to draw the images.
Here I am, nearly 9 years later, getting ready to finally release the book. I am very excited to get this book out to the public so you can all enjoy this little song I wrote for my own little cub.
