Why reserve a spot around the campfire?

Because it’s hard to travel in the wilderness all alone. There is so much comfort in knowing that there will always be a spot waiting for you around this campfire with other fellow seekers and searchers whenever you need it.

This place of crackling respite and handwarming hope is a perfect spot for anyone who wants to safely rest under some virtual stars while I spin you a story of two of my own adventures into the badlands of my heart.

Here at the Campfire, I will be sending out 3 newsletters a month that features brand new writing with some other little surprises I have in store for PAID SUBSCRIBERS.
