Must Have Fun

Fun Improves Health! Did you know that having fun is good for you? Studies show having fun reduces stress, increases serotonin, boosts energy, improves memory/concentration, and improves sleep. Children instinctively understand without conscious thought. Adults sometimes require reminders. That’s why I held a pet contest on Book Mates. But I’m getting ahead of myself. I’m writing my next Clocktower Romance about Kyle Murphy, the teen from my first book, Home to Stay.
