The Struggle has been real…

This is me. Standing on a dock, staring out at fog, and begging for it to make sense. At least that was me…now, the fog has been lifted. I’ve been feeling conflicted for several months now. I’ve been trying to help my boys get their company started and I also found a newfound passion for…

Monthly Writing Update

Yes, it’s been forever since I have written. I have no excuses except that I have been flat out busy with life. I have so much coming up in the coming months, both personal and professional, that to sit down and compose a blog post has been difficult. So, what’s been going on… I have…

The Wicked Thorn Part One

  It’s almost here. I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence. The Wicked Thorn started taking shape in my mind almost a year ago and to see it finally be ready to publish is insane to me. I never imagined that I would write such a novel. I was perfectly happy to continue writing in…

Extra! Extra!

  Yes, it has been forever since I have posted anything. I can tell you though, that I have been working like a mad woman over the past several weeks, and I can finally share some exciting news. My entire body of work will be available in print! Amazon is now printing my books for…

Writing a Stand Alone Novel vs. a Series

  “Learning never exhausts the mind.” -Leonardo da Vinci   I have written thirteen books and one cookbook. Not bad, right?

Making the Superhero Leap

  “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates   “Where have you been?” “What have you been up to?” “Are you writing?” “When is your next book coming out?”   Jeez, you take a few months off… I’m joking. It…

Summer Update

  It’s summer! The air is thick and the vegetation is lush down here in the heart of Dixie. Summer is the time when I miss my home state of Maine the most. I think of the warm, picturesque scenery almost every time I step outside in the saturating, oppressive muggy heat of South Carolina….

Editing, Writing, and More

  I finished writing Awakened Moon and now I am stranded in no man’s land. The manuscript is off to my editor and the question of do I start the next novel begins to form in my mind. The last book in The Hidden Realm Series is practically written. The plot, notes, and outline are…

Upcoming Projects

  I’ve only been out of hibernation for a week and already I am getting asked about what I’m doing for the future. *Sigh* Well, I have a lot planned for this year and I have no idea if I am going to be able to get it all done, but I think it’s always…

Captivating Wick Release Date & Info

  Life is funny, isn’t it? I’m sitting here and I had to pause for a second because I cannot believe I am already writing out this blog post. I literally just published Enchanting Wick a few weeks ago and now, here I am again, ready to publish another book. I suppose the only explanation I…
