Thank you

Thank you

I think every writer has a moment (or several) when they wonder why the hell we do what we do. At least all the writers I know have these moments. I certainly do. Sometimes it’s writer’s block. Or we think everything we’ve written is crap (which, if it’s a first draft it undoubtedly is). Or we feel like imposters, always waiting for someone to point a finger at us and call us out as frauds. Because I can’t be a real writer. Most days I don’t even feel like a real grown-up. I’ve had several of these self-defeating moments lately, […]

Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

When I sat down to write this post, I’d planned to write about Valentine’s Day. It’s this weekend… I’m a romance author… I should be giddy at the thought of my husband bringing me flowers and candy in a heart-shaped box. But Larry brings me flowers, and yes candy, often… just because he wants to, without the pressure of a holiday.   V-day is all fine and good, but I want to talk about love. February is the month of love, right? But I’m not thinking about the hearts and flowers type of love. The kind that releases beautiful butterflies […]

Okay, so this happened today…

Hey, everyone!   I want to share the news I woke up to this morning. I’m still a little shocked, and hoping that I’m not dreaming, because this is AWESOME!   I’ve mentioned several times in interviews, on my blog, and other places that my young adult contemporary romance, “Unspeakable,” is extremely close to my heart. So this award is extra special to me.   Okay, so here it is….   To all the readers… thank you. You all are full of awesomeness! I wish I could hug each of you. 🙂                 […]

Busy, busy, and more busy!

Busy, busy, and more busy!

I can hardly wait! It starts tomorrow. What’s “it?” Well, I’ll tell you… Camp NaNoWriMo. Camp runs through July, and gives some authors the accountability they need… like me, for example. I am thrilled to have a cabin full of other young and new adult authors to share goals, feedback and ideas with. So, for the month of July, I’ll be writing the next book in the Freedom Series. My goal is to have the rough draft done by the time Camp ends. Then there’ll be two months of edits, beta readers, and then… more edits. But I’m not looking down […]

Release Day! Unspeakable is here…

Release Day! Unspeakable is here…

I’m jumping up and down excited to finally say… “Unspeakable” is here! “Breathe. No one will break me. I’m strong. Breathe. Just breathe.” On the outside, Willow appears to have it all. She’s beautiful, smart, from an influential family, and she dates the most popular guy in school—Jaden. But she would walk away from it all in a second. Willow is tormented by lies and suffocating guilt, not the hearts and flowers people believe her life is full of. She carries a dark secret. Plagued by nightmares and pain, the secret dominates her life. If she hadn’t walked away. If […]

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

I’m so excited! Today is the release of…     “Finding Willow” is a short novella prequel to “Unspeakable.” It follows Brody during the months leading up to his first meeting with Willow, which coincidences with the first chapter in “Unspeakable.” Since the novel “Unspeakable” is told from Willow’s point of view, I thought it might be nice to give readers a small peek into Brody’s mind. This way, when reading “Unspeakable,” readers will have a little background information to go along with his…personality quirks. Excerpt from Finding Willow… The money fluttered to the ground and, with a sigh, Willow […]

I have some of the best friends in the writing community. You know who you are. This is a huge shout out to one of them. You’re Amaz-balls, Mer.  I didn’t read it in the video, but your card read that the t-shirt was evidence of why you shouldn’t be allowed in crafting stores.  Well, I give it…

This is the cover to my novella “Finding Willow.” It’s the prequel to “Unspeakable.” The story is told from Brody’s point of view during the months leading up to his first meeting with Willow.
