Thanks for the heads up. I'm a day late but I sent in a belated birthday wish in a JA fan fiction forum. We all missed it there.

Really Angelic

Jane and I are born on the same day, some 200+ years apart, of course! Nonetheless, I feel special for that reason. Silly. Of course. I like to be silly some times!

I enjoy your blog very much! Thank you!

Where is Lori Smith? Does anyone know? I just found her book and her site. Nothing more current that 2008.
