    I like.
    Your bio in a few short sentences.
    It’s like a poem.
    And u don’t try very hard to not be sarcastic.-(I know, double negative)

    I like your work, Key. And I’m already used to calling you Key.

    These few sentences make the reader want to know you. It’s like the preface of the book, which you should work on. I would purchase it. And I, too am a writer.

    What a discovery! I found the word, “Ladyplum” (i.e. “key” word); sounds familiar doesn’t it. Curious about that name, I found you!

    How sophisticated you’ve become, I am so impressed. Erykah Badu could be your sister if she were as beautiful and talented as you.

    So sweet Ladyplum here is a song I found you will love it I am sure. Its about your favorite thing… lilac. Its called “Lilac Wine” Elkie Brooks sings it with absolute passion, commitment and the same sultriness you sing “I’ll be there” Enjoy it!

    Kindest Regards
