Welcome. It must be nice to have a writer as a wife. You probably get so much more support that way.

Welcome to the Cooler! That's really quite fantastic that you've found a partner who shares a love for writing. I can't say I'm so lucky, but at least he's supportive. I hope you have a wonderful stay here!
