WHY CAN’T I WRITE???

I am just going to come out and say it. I am in a holding pattern. I have lost sight of the dream. I have lost sight of my self. I HATE  the stories inside my head that will not leave me alone and yet will not come out in a way others of my […]

Why do I do this?

If any of you are reading ELIZABETH TUDOR and don’t want to have a notion of certain developments later in the story ruined, cease construing pronto!! This process of writing is very exposing and brutal and I have no idea why I keep doing it. So, because of who I am and what I stand […]

A Few Thoughts About Self Publishing

Now that my book has been published, I have a few thoughts that I wanted to share with you, my beloved readers. I went with a printer called Bookbaby, and things didn’t quite go as planned. There is a lot more to publishing than just printing out a book. It turns out that distribution is […]

I do love me some smoochy-woochy , lovey-dovey.  I just don’t like it when authors take it ‘all the way’ (especially when the characters are teenagers).  Sometimes you run across an author that you just can trust.

Blood Of The Gods Update!

Hi all ya’ll. I just wanted to celebrate. I have been working on a major rewrite of a story I finished seven years ago, and today, while the kids were at school I finished the first draft. This rewrite has been massive, like deleting 40,000 words and adding 45,000 words. I am really proud of […]

Sporty Girl + Hunky Boy = Cute YA Reads

So, I wish I could hit a ball or kick a ball or toss a ball… pretty much I wish I could control a ball instead of get hit in the head by them. If you’re like me the only way you will ever get anywhere near competency in a sport is to live vicariously […]

I know that once kids hit the middle school years, it can be a little tougher to find books that they love to read! I am hoping to come up with a few lists of books that will keep kids engaged and loving reading, because I love reading. Here is my first list of four […]
