Darla Halyk ~ Freelance Writer
I have a passion for words; I consider words to be what will change our world. I believe in raw, honest storytelling and believe I have the voice to do so. Whether it be in the form of humor or tear jerking, soul-moving sentences, words have the power to change a life.
