    Hey Gail,
    Remember me? I couldn`t find any other way to contact you. I must say, for an author, you are tough to track down, and for me, thats saying a lot because of the number of times I`ve done this before and because of the number of connections you have online.
    I`m glad you liked my short story, thanks for the comments. I have a profile on, if you`d like to check it out, but I`m not sure if you`ve read the stories that I wriote about. Anyhow, it`s called Lovewarriors (because I love the Warriors, duh!) and here`s a quick link to my profile page (in the PS section).
    With your permission, I would like to write a short story (probably a one-shot) based on Gravity Journal.
    I am finally out of CASA house; I got back to school on the 31st.
    Wishing you all the best,

    PS: In case you want to write back;
