“I’m sorry, I don’t think I heard you correctly,” she says, letting out a huff of laughter that belies the confusion I can hear in her voice. “Can you say that just…one more time? Because it sounded for a second there like you said…” “I think we should get married.” She freezes, her confusion morphing
When my dad passed away in 2013, I struggled to find ways to manage the emotions I experienced. I tried watching movies, binged television shows like Survivor and The Amazing Race and The Bachelor. I ate – a lot. In May 2014, I picked up my very first romance novel. Fifty Shades of Grey. I
I’m on deadline this month. I’m on deadline and the past few days have been spent in repose on the couch with a stomach sickness that kept me half asleep and unable to work. Well. That’s a lie. I could have forced myself to work. But I would not have been putting forth my best

I don’t think I’ve ever been so exhausted in my life. Hubby and I took a little trip to Dallas, TX last week for the book signing event of the year and holy cannoli was it absolutely amazing. Below is a highlight real of my favorite moments and experiences: Meeting the woman who inspired me
I think one of the most difficult things about writing is actually getting words on the page. And that isn’t because a person who considers themselves to be a writer doesn’t have anything to say. If anything, that person might have too much to say, and can’t seem to sort it out. Or maybe it’s
