Recommended Reading List: December 2019

Saving The World and Historical Mysteries, and A Plethora of Writing Tips

I love having an excuse to use the word “plethora.” And really, I need it here. I’ve been busy with the Business Master Class, then trying to catch up on a lot of work, not to mention a bit of exhaustion from the schedule.
