Last Words
Karl says: Create Something Everyday– Do. Create. Live.
Adrienne says: We re-recorded Ninth Ward and Extraordinary Secrets of April, May and June. We decided to move forward.

We really enjoyed Ninth Ward and for an adult author writing her first children’s book, it was a good job well done.

As for Secrets, Emily enjoyed it more than the rest of us, although we could all relate to the sibling relationship and the arguing.
