I love you, but I’m writing…

  “Writing is something you do alone. It’s a profession for introverts who wanna tell you a story, but don’t wanna make eye contact while telling it.” -John Green I have started writing my new book, The Fairy Door. I am completely immersed in creating new characters, new realms, new story lines, and crazy plots that will…

My nemesis: Action Scenes

Every writer has different abilities that they excel at and every writer also has areas where they will always need work. I have no trouble rambling on with my characters inner musings and I am pretty darn good at dialogue, if I do say so myself. The problem I have always been faced with is…

The Art of Taking a Break

  Someone recently asked me what I had been up to lately. It seems my disappearance from the outside world has not gone unnoticed. I answered simply that I was taking a break and I was soon going to go back to work on finishing editing the fourth and final book in The Fae Witch…

Writing & Cursing or Cursing Writing?

*This article is for mature audiences only* I am going to start off by saying that I swear…a lot. Yes, I am a mother of three and sometimes it can be hard not to drop the f-bomb when I want too but inevitably it happens. I see nothing wrong with it nor do I think…

The Dangers of Writing a Novel

  Has writing The Cursed Charm placed a hex on me?   Todays blog post is a bit tongue and cheek but a subject I must address. A little over a month ago I started writing The Cursed Charm, Book one of The Fae Witch Series. Three and half weeks later I was done with…
