Grey? Not Green(e)?

As for Trevor. Nope, neither a friend nor my cat. He's the fictional character my first book centers on. Poke around the archives, follow links, and drop me lots of e-mails if you are lost and I'll get you up to speed so that you're soon caught up in the craziness, too.

I knew some of the answers, 1984 is one of my favorite books, and required reading for my son's this school year (we homeschool). Great T13 stop by the cafe some day.
