Joy V. Smith in the spotlight

Here’s a link to Author Spotlight: Joy V. Smith: http://morgenbailey.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/author-spotlight-no-183-joy-v-smith/

I got the chance to talk about my writing and stories.  Thanks, Morgen!  I’ll be posting links to my Pinterest boards later.  I only joined Pinterest a couple days ago; I spent a lot of time shrieking and begging for help, but I’ve got a few book covers and other things “pinned.”
