Destiny has torn their family apart. Now it’s their fate to defy their destiny.

Daniel and Emily Smudde were driven apart by college. Emily went east, Daniel stayed west. Boredom, and a weird sibling bond that they can’t shake off, has brought them back together.

This is their blog. This is Seven Degrees of Smudde.

This is their other blog: Write Makes Right where they write parts of a story together.
