I’ve been promising the addition of new volunteer writers on Written Road so we can expand this community, and we finally got it going! Kelly Amabile was our first and is off seeing the world with more than 100 days under her belt. Now, Terah Shelton is here and she’s already been at it for two months! Boy have the weeks slipped by. So, I wanted to let you know who Terah is, what a great help she has been to me, and encourage you to give her a warm welcome. We can all thank her for her efforts—Sheila already got a job from one of Terah’s posts, and that’s what we like to hear! So, thanks Terah!
