Hi there!

P.S: If you read my book, I’d love to hear from you and feature your comments on this site, but please remember that, unlike the Gremlin in the story, it’s important that we’re respectful to and of each other. Also, because your safety is important to me, I can only accept emails sent with an adult’s permission and from their email address.
