In his spare time, he follow a number of education and political e-zines and newsletters, and enjoys reading a variety of books (mostly nonfiction).

  1. Thanks Kev, for your wonderful support of this author. It’s truly amazing what this young girl endured in her fight to spread the word about transgender children.

    • Yes, to say she had her challenges would be the understatement of the century, but I do believe the world is slowly changing with acceptance of these very real issues becoming a gradual success. However, there is still such a long way to go.

      I have no problem supporting those authors who are brave enough to write about such great feats, and bring to light the issues of this ever developing age of the world as I would any other author.

      Thank you for the wonderful comment, Becky.
