You have a great site here. I loved the post about Mary Shelley and Frankenstein. My son is manager of the Shelley Theatre in Bournemouth, UK. The theatre was founded by Mary’s family.

All the very best to you and yours,
Thanks very much! I followed your other site too. 🙂
Hey, sorry to bother you.
Before moving back to south florida, I was living in Orlando; I grew up there part time too. I used to have another blog on here that was, primarily poetry and erotic fiction laced with horror. I think it was HailxxxMary. Were we associated through that? If not, were we associated at all in Orlando?
Your page and photos are either severe de-ja-vue or we’ve met before…
Hmmm, I’m not sure. I’ve only had this blog for a little more than a year, and I’ve only lived in Orlando for about five or six years (I lived in Daytona Beach before that; I grew up there). But if we haven’t met before, I’m please to meet you now! So hi. 🙂

Hey there! Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, I have a site other than this one which is just http://www.jennyashford.com that has all my stuff on it…links to my books, graphic design portfolio, all of that. I had actually thought about getting into movies at some point down the line. Something about being able to bring all my creative endeavors together is really appealing to me.
