Da5id's knowledge of literature is extensive, and he has become a familiar voice at Tea Time sessions, and The Dickens Project. Da5id has the notable achievement of having read the only American voice (he is not) in The Hound of the Baskervilles, while the Americans read all the Brit parts - and did so with good cheer!

Always unpredictable and irreverent, no subject is too sacred, no cow too holy for Crap not to pull it out, examine it, and bang it on the table a few times before putting it back where he found it - albeit slightly crumpled. Long ago, he swore an oath to write a 100 word story every day until the day he died. He's not dead yet. And no, he NEVER has opinions! http://oneadayuntilthedayidie.com/

Some folks call Trolley “Trailer Trash” ‘cause she grew up poor in south Alabama. After Mama died Trolley packed up her things—including Mama’s pearls that Mama told her to never take off so she’d always know that even though she might be poor, she’s a lady—and set out to see the world. Trolley bring more wit and erudition along with her love of literature than you might suppose. Don't judge THIS book by its cover!
