THE LAST OF LUCY – ASHVATTHA

THE LAST OF LUCY - ASHVATTHA (Self Released) I love my editor. To paraphrase the words of Mister Universe (if you're a Firefly fan), she always brings me the very best violence. The Last Of Lucy are from Huntington Beach, California. If there's one thing I've learned...
