2020 readings have been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, increase in cases, deaths and lack of a vaccine. I wish all well during these troubling times in the hope you stay safe. Thank you to the venues that booked us and those that requested readings. Let us all hope that 2021 brings a return to normalcy.
