Change by Tiare Snow

Change by Tiare Snow

Vulnerability was growing on her; a softer, translucent aura knocking down the cage of shame and fear.

Dominating the airwaves, The Happy Wanderer was an instant hit, holding number one in the charts for eight […]

Price to Pay by Julie Davies

Price to Pay by Julie Davies

It’s hard to believe we’re the same people. In 1979, a smiling young man walked up to me in the crowded disco of a remote Australian mining town and asked for a dance. The next song was the Kiss hit I was made for lovin’ you. We both abandoned our friends after an hour and […]
