Resurrect the WOOLLY MAMMOTH!!!

Resurrect them, I say! And how that statement pertains to my writing life 🙂 So, you have likely, by now, heard about the scientists who are trying to bring back the woolly mammoths from extinction. They left our world around 1700 BC although some people have timed it at 10,000 years ago. And they want to bring it back, because, well, why not? We need to resurrect these behemoths to reverse global warming. Or so they say… But–you ask–what has that to do with your writing, Kim Smith? Everything. And nothing.

Power of Money When Flat Broke

Power of Money When Flat Broke

The Power of Money When You Are Flat Broke Hi- my name is Kim and I have a problem. Well, not so much a problem as an obsession. Do you ever think about the money you spend, no matter when or where?
