Good Morning! I am in Gatlinburg, TN this fine morning. I came to check things for my dad but I love the condo here. It’s quiet, it’s isolated, it’s located away from the maddening crowd and the traffic. Gatlinburg is a tourist city and the traffic in the summer is horrendous. It is very close to Pigeon Forge, another tourist city with scads of traffic. Now back to my writing, the picture book class has taken one of manuscripts and turned it on its proverbial ear.
