I have been writing for years. I first experienced the spark when I was in high school. I would spend hours reading fiction and devouring stories that I enjoyed. I would scour new and old books to find the perfect combination of characters and plots until it became increasingly difficult to find exactly what I was looking for.

This converted residential/ commercial space also features the same style of decorative corbel. The newly renovated Empire… Read more Architectural Style in Hamilton Ontario →
