Works in Progress

There is always a new story brewing in my head and on my computer. These manuscripts are either still in the writing stage or in the editing process. By the way, everything on this page is subject to change: titles, storylines, just everything!

Elizabeth Adams is the first of Anne's former guests to arrive and see the potential in carrying on Anne's legacy. With help from James, she discovers that the term "caregiver" can have many meanings.
