MEET AUDREY! – The Landlocked Mermaid

Written by Audrey Mischa Kirk Who am I? Who are you? I was given the honor to join a good friends blog and write a simple bio about myself. Geeze! I thought this would be a lot easier but when I sat down to write, my page was BLANK. I couldn’t answer a simple question about who I was? In the
