…..But that doesn’t suggest that we write a similar tales, in regards to the comparable things.
Make No Assumptions is an anthology produced from tales we wrote jointly. Over a yr, we met each Wednesday and selected a subject matter. either one of us wrote no matter what struck our fancy—poetry, brief tales, memoir, or a mixture of all of them. Then we went domestic and feverishly constructed, edited and constructed a few extra, as all writers must.
So chill out in a simple chair with a pleasant glass of iced tea (sweet of course), and enjoy.
