Start Writing For The Busy Writer – Part One

When people discover I’m a writer, frequent questions I’m asked are (1) how I got started (2) how and where I find stories ideas and (3) how I find the time to write. I’ve answered these questions at book signings, and on various blog posts, but I thought I’d put my answers together in a [...]

A Year In The Life Of A Writer

In January 2015, my husband decided to change jobs and move from the Cayman Islands-my home for my entire life-to Florida.

Interracial Couples in Books and TV

Interracial couples have been around for hundreds of years so why wasn't the media and entertainment world not showing a true depiction of couples in [...]

To Prequel or Not To Prequel

How Conferences and Workshops Changed My Writing Career

Growing up as a writer in Grand Cayman was a challenge, especially after leaving high school. Other than an English class at college, writing workshops or book fairs didn't exist in the traditional sense. Published authors were minimal and I couldn't go knocking on Dick Francis's door when he moved to the island. If I wanted [...]

4 Words that Changed My Life Forever

THE NEWS "We're moving to Florida!" Those were my husband words in February when he decided to get a new job. Although I knew the possibility of him getting a job outside of Grand Cayman was high, part of me hoped he would find one where we lived. When I first heard the words, panic struck [...]
