Do The Work. It’s Worth It.

Do the work, it’s worth it. I don’t get writers block. I don’t ever have that stumped feeling, ‘what should my character do next’. I literally only have to put my fingers to the key pad and my characters continue the playacting that is their one-dimensional world. What I do get is, ‘I do not […]

How To Get It All Done: A Busy Mom Following Her Dreams

People ask me all the time how I manage to home school, cook dinner, be an awesome friend and write. I have one thing to say on this subject: you/we/I find time to do what is important to us. PERIOD! When I am on a diet, exercise and food prep are super important and I […]

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 […]

My Life Right Now

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to listen/meet/learn from some amazing authors, publishers and just plain cool people at a writer’s conference. I also had time to work on my writing, get a little R&R and I even pitched my book to a top NOTCH agent. It was such a great weekend and […]

What to Read After Harry Potter

You know how after you complete a series, you go into a bit of a book coma? You think about the characters, dream about the characters, wonder what they’re doing, and sometimes forget that they’re not real? I do. All the time. That’s one reason I love this article over at Read Brightly. Ten series to read […]

Weekly Getaway

My husband and I have a deal. Once a week, I take off from my mom duties and he lets me run over to his office so that I can type away on my novels. We call it my second job. He’s home, putting thee kids to bed, and I’m here. No make up, dirty […]
