My name is Hannah D. Sluder and I am originally from Georgia. I recently moved to Texas with my husband, who is also my high school sweetheart. I have always played with the idea of writing a short story before but never thought I had the gumption to go through with it. I can honestly say I absolutely loved writing this story and I hope you love reading it just as much.
