Writing runs in the family. The Attica Ledger Tribune has published my mother's weekly articles for more than 24 years. My daughter, Maryanne Myers just released a new book, RANDOM, The Nefarious Realm available through www.buybooksontheweb.com.

(Out-of-Body- Experience) at will. She publishes newsletters on the web and also will distribute your advertising across the web to millions of subscribers.
