I’ve Been MIA!

Sorry I’ve been MIA for the last little while! It’s not that I don’t love you all or that I’ve been too busy. No, it’s that I’ve been working on getting a new and improved site going! Since I know new and improved is on the way, I’ve been reluctant to post anything new here. …

And the Story Goes On–Update

So, if you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that I recently contracted with Silver Publishing for my novella Love and Lattes. Well, that’s what it’s currently called and since I’ve heard no word about the title changing, I’m assuming it’s staying the same. I’ve dreamed about what it would be like to finally get a …

New Beginnings

Not in a philosophical way. I really, really needed a new beginning for my newest WIP. The beginning wasn’t bad, but I have a tendency to add a little too much wordiness to my beginnings. I think it’s just part of my process as a writer as I get to know the story and the …

Accepting the Differences

So today I’m feeling inspired by my real life. I have two kids and the older they get, the more differences I see in them. I used to think that they were the same, but I think that was more wishful thinking on my part than anything else. See if they were the same, then …
