If you're an indie author or writer and you like the idea of my Saturday Spotlight contact me on my... Continue Reading →

Writing Community

So... My short story will be live tomorrow for all to read. Super nervous! Wondering how it will be received by readers. But this post isn't about that really. Well, it is and it isn't. First it's wonderful to be part of a community and I wouldn't have my story in this anthology at all... Continue Reading →

Almost

I have these moments where things in life become tedious, overwhelming, and downright miserable... because let's face it life isn't always sweet, it's not a bunch of rainbows or glittery goodness( though glitter being a good thing can be quite debatable).

Animal Companions

Oh, Baby!

It is a crisp Monday morning and my family's weekday morning ritual has settled in rather nicely. The husband wakes up and heads to work while I feed our 3-month-old son. Soon the six-year-old is up and at it; getting ready for school. After breakfast, getting ready, and heading to the car, we do a... Continue Reading →

I caught the anthology fever and will be participating in a quite a few over the next few years. The first anthology I'm writing for is right up... Continue Reading →

Talent & Skill

So... I've been contemplating something lately. I had this innate talent for poetry and writing when I was in high school. This quickly changed due to a miraid of things. First it was someone who told me writing wasn't worth it, next it was life in general. I pushed one of my loves aside. So... Continue Reading →
