When I was in high school, one of the jobs I had was preparing meals for an elderly man. As I think about it, I wasn’t actually preparing the meals, I think I just chopped things up for him and did some cleanup. It’s not a job I think about […]

I have really been enjoying the Return of the Blackwell Brothers series! Each of the authors has written a story that works so well with the others. I love the concept of each of the five brothers being called back to help with their grandfather’s ranch, one by one, in […]
