Story Girl CA- Caroline
Writing is my source of peace. I write short stories: memoirs, fiction, and on matters of the soul.

Why You Can't Let Stress and Anxiety Weigh You Down
Anxiety is the most common illness in the U.S. alone which affects 40 million adults ages eighteen and older.

When my family travels together it's always an adventure. Nevertheless, this story is for all the coffee lovers out there.
