    Hi Jean,
    I have just come across your website, and it has lots of great content. Thanks for sharing your insights on writing with the rest of us!
    One thing I notice is that there is no option to “follow” this blog. Have you intentionally disabled this feature? (Or am I missing it?)
    Normally, all WordPress blogs have a “Follow” button that individuals can choose to press. If they do so, every time the blog author publishes a new post, the followers receive an email notification with a link to the new post.

    Thanks for the feedback, Tom! (I’ve been on vacation – finally have a chance to catch up on messages.) I’m having tech support check into the “Follow” issue. I really appreciate your letting me know about the issue.

    Can you explain what’s confusing? Salted caramel ice cream really is my favorite. I can’t figure out what’s confusing – please help!

    How awesome, all your works. Truly inspirational. However, can you write your next book a bit more personal, so that we can learn what makes you an expert; and what drove you to write . Starting after the English class at the prison and the forgiveness you must endure as you led a young life ….. # no bullies, tell these people the real story all faults including you are not the perfect one, you too have ghost in your closet.
