I am stoked that so many of your have asked to be friends with me. I am relatively new to the book club and have written several articles for the magazine labeled "My Patchwork Childhood." They chronicle my growing up years in Alaska right after WWII and read like "Little House on the Prairie." My first book is called "Who Told You That You Were Naked?" It is not a racy novel but a reexamination of the first chapters of Genesis. If you go to my website, www.williamcombsauthor.com, you can listen to an audio sample from the book. Enjoy, :o) Bill
