There is a basilica and gift shop, of course. Jill and I enjoyed chatting with a nun who was hard at work on an art project for Christmas.

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
