    Hi Darlene,
    I’d like to buy some of your books, but the Paypal cart on your site doesn’t seem to be working for me. Could I do a transaction by sending you a payment directly on Paypal? Also, the Joan of Arc book is one of the ones I want to buy, and it isn’t showing up on the drop down menu.
    Thanks Very Much,
    Joe Piela

    Thanks Darlene!

    I’ll get the payment out to you.

    I absolutely love those Monty Haul stories that Jim Ward did in The Dragon! So I got your reference. If there are any spells in those books for frying 10 balrogs at once then I am indeed getting a Monty-Haul.
