Intermission

Dear readers, Although I promised the next chapter of FALLING IN LOVE WHILE WORKING FROM HOME, I must step away today. I have a deadline and it cannot be missed. I still welcome your ideas. I have written (or at least outlined) every chapter but for a killer idea I’m willing to revise. See you…
