I just changed my mind. (Not a crime FYI)

Sometimes we, as authors, simply must open our minds and hearts to honest criticism. Yes, our books are our babies…but then, sometimes we look at our children and don’t see them as clearly as we should, right?

I’m drawn to the struggle of LGBTQ individuals. I’m not LGBTQ, myself. And none of my children or close friends have confided to me that they are LGBTQ people.
