fakedanshusband_2014-Aug-28It’s Friday! The last Friday in August. Wait! How did that happen? How does the time seem to fly, so? That means for many of us, this is a three-day weekend. All the more reason to be happy that Friday is finally here!

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. For more than 20 years I edited and published an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
