  1. Thanks for checking out the latest chapter of “Blue Cottage”. I just read “About J.E. Skye” and about tackle the letter you wrote to yourself. Oh BTW, the character Peter has throat cancer. He’s about to undergo radiation therapy. Just like I did two and a half years ago. I can only write about the experience now. 2.5 years cancer free.
