Stormbirds turns six!

It’s a little hard to believe but it’s true! On this day in 2016, I wrote the first post on the newly launched Stormbirds blog. What started out as a writing experiment turned into what you see today and I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the anniversary. Writing Stormbirds has taken me further…
