 I have officially been a mom now for eleven years. (Yikes!) It has been the best and hardest thing I've ever done. Through it all I have continued to write. Writing and motherhood have had an interesting relationship in my life and as I look back I can see how intertw...

Six months ago, at the beginning of 2018, I had a HUGE appetite for books. I couldn't quit adding them to my Amazon cart and I'd sniff out bookstores no matter where we were. My only resolution for the year was to read more books. Although I have already doubled the am...

As 2017 came to a close, I was depressed when I thought of my TBR list not really changing. Oops! Reading had sadly taken the back burner.  Granted, I finally published New City, and that took a lot of time but reading brings me so much joy and inspiration as a wr...

Oh creativity - You clever little minx, you.  Living a creative life has always been something that made me feel whole. That being said, there can be a back side to all of that, a dark side of the moon that no one thinks to explore first.  It's a good thing we don't....

  • Do you have a favorite band or musician  based off of lyrics? -Based off of lyrics only, I'd have to say Trevor Hall.  Right now in my life his words comfort me and speak to a deep part of my soul.  With the way the world is going right now it's nice to hear his li...
