A Note from Katrina

Hey, there! You a reader? Me too. Books were my best friends for most of my childhood, so naturally I grew up wanting to write novels. Nice to meet you!

I usually write upmarket women’s fiction (with a dark streak of humor because laughing keeps a girl from crying, yanno?).

I thought wrong. This morning I tested positive.  I don’t know what to think. I feel fine, though I wear out quickly. My cough is almost gone. I’ve sneezed a couple of times, but otherwise the congestion is cleared up. I had a bit of a headache earlier. But that’s it. I don’t even have a fever, and never did—and fever is the one symptom everyone with omicron…
