#REBLOG — THE LAST DRIVE by John W. Howell #newrelease #supernatural #fiction

Ciao, amici! I’m so happy to host today’s guest. He’s funny; I’m not. (Well, I think I am, but my kids would argue otherwise.) He’s retired; I would love to be. He’s a gentleman and a scholar; I… used to teach, does that count? But we have a lot of things in common, too. We… Continue reading #REBLOG — THE LAST DRIVE by John W.
