Nevada Authors & Books

Naomi Canale | Nevada Writer

But now that my children are growing older, I’ve fallen back in love with the slimy creatures that enjoy living under my bed.

For the past ten years, my love for writing and reading has more than tripled—along with my coffee addiction, and I’m very grateful for the family of writers who have loved me along the way.

and different would prevail
And where only hardy life hangs on
to all that it entails... Read More
