Brooklyn native Len Moon claims she's woman of many talents but a master of none, well not as yet. An event coordinator, writer, and mother of two beautiful boys, this Atlanta resident has a new found appreciation of the city and would love to share all of her finds with her readers. She chose writing as an escape from reality in which nobody could determine or limit her possibilities.
