I stare longingly out my kitchen window into my new next-door neighbor’s backyard. I can see the smoke coming from his grill, smell the delectable scent of what I can only assume is burgers as it wafts through the air, and I rub my protruding tummy absentmindedly. I’m pretty sure I’ve never been this hungry… Continue reading LIKE YOU MEAN IT, CHAPTER ONE
In the wake of some personal struggles this year, it has been hard to find the motivation to focus on writing. I was dealing with a chronically ill husband, debilitating anxiety attacks, medical concerns, and the ups and downs of finding out I'm pregnant only to then have a miscarriage. Needless to say, keeping my… Continue reading FINDING MY FOCUS

But in October, the motivation to wrap up the stories of some very beloved secondary characters from The Keeper was overwhelming. So… Continue reading KEEP AWAY COUNTDOWN!

First, I want to say that yes, I have started working on Keep Away,… Continue reading SO… NOW WHAT?
I've been a writer all of my life. That has never been a question. When I was a kid, I wrote weird stories about mermaids. When I was in junior high and high school, I wrote stories about my own life, fictionalizing my experiences to create dramatic flair and recreating relationships with guys I had… Continue reading I’M AN AUTHOR
I can't believe I am only THREE DAYS away from The Keeper going live. This book means so much to me. It's a first attempt at doing something I've loved for so long.
