The end of the year is here. My Christmas holidays were relaxing and also fun. I was able to spend quality time with my kids, but I also got time with myself as the kids were with their dad just after Christmas. During my time alone, I decided to do a little work, but not [...]

Why I Haven’t Published A Book

In October I realized I hadn't published a book since 2018. The realization hit me to the core. I've been thinking all year that it was only two years since I published a book. Talk about an eye opener. It got me thinking about all the reasons I hadn't published a book. I was saving [...]

Why I Split My Story into 3 Different Books

A while back, I decided to work on a book I'd written over twenty years ago. One of the first books that I sent to publishers hoping they'd see the uniqueness of it. They didn't because the story was hopelessly flawed. When I decided to pluck it from the mountain of old story ideas and [...]

New Book Release

The day is here! One I've been planning for almost three years. A new book! The story idea for Persuading Lola was born because readers wanted to hear the story of the ghosts from my first book For The Love of Jazz. Writing the characters was fun! I fell in love with them while writing [...]

New Beginnings and Saying Goodbye to the Past

New beginnings happen when life doesn't work out the way you hoped or planned. Those new beginnings can be opportunities, or they can be struggles. I've been quiet for the past few months due to some big changes in my personal life. I wasn't ready to share before, but I am now. LIFE UPDATE Single [...]

Summer Is Over

Summer is over. This might be a sad time for teachers, but for parents-especially those working from home-there are no sweeter words. My daughter started kindergarten this week, bringing in a new era. My baby is officially a student. I admit it. I cried a little. My son is clearly NOT thrilled that summer is [...]

Christmas Traditions

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. An overused expression I know, but never seems to go out of style. I love this time of the year! A time for Christmas traditions and spending time with family. Yes, I’m one of those smiling idiots you pass in the stores mouthing the words to the [...]

A Year In The Life Of A Writer

After freaking out a little, I decided the change was a wonderful opportunity for me and my family. When my husband accepted a job in February 2015, I decided to use the move as the [...]
