Definitely an inspirational story!


I just wanted to share with you all an article about an amazing woman.

I’ve been following her journey for a while now and I can’t believe how much chutzpah she has.

Is anybody buying this?


These are not the droids you are looking for…

Yours in storytelling,

Steve Vernon
