What I'm happy about this week: rest. Last year around this time, I made a holiday themed banner for my website. I put my first two published titles in a sleigh being pulled by cute spaceships. And of course, the dragon Bookwyrm was dressed in her festive Santa hat ❤ If I tried to update … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Twelve
It's been just over a week since Lingering Touch came out. There's been so much activity surrounding it! I added a section to the Lingering Touch page on my web site just to track all the guest blog posts, features, and interviews! ❤ I'm thrilled to have been interviewed on the USA Today Happy Ever … Continue reading Still Celebrating…With Food!
Today is triply blessed for me. It's the Summer Solstice and the full moon for June—the Strong Sun Moon. And also, today is the release day for my latest scifi novella (which is not at all a coincidence 😉 ). It's a good time to take stock of the last year, and after reading my … Continue reading The Strong Sun Moon

I have so many projects in the works right now, with edits for the spider-headed zombie romance underway, the … Continue reading Messages from the Universe

The scenery on the drive was beautiful with Fall getting ready to set in. At one point, I was driving through the countryside during the golden hour. The trees … Continue reading Top Ten Things I Loved About ORACon
What the what?! A double-post day? There's just SO MUCH GOING ON! Look what I found available for pre-order on Amazon.com: I also discovered that the release date for Gray Card is earlier than I anticipated—October 6! I know a few people who will be very happy to hear that their wait is several weeks … Continue reading Blasting Off on Amazon! …Already?!
It has been surreal to think about the events of Wandering Soul taking place each day as I’m living my normal life. Walking through the grocery store, I’m picturing Elsa and Dante in Florida. They would be eating breakfast at about that time. Are they having pancakes? Cereal? I didn’t write that moment, so I … Continue reading Reality + Alternate Reality = Surreality
I try to be careful about keeping track of when things occur in my stories. This is especially important when writing series with books that contain overlapping events. Wandering Soul is actually the first of three books that will hopefully mark the beginning of such a series. The next two occur over the same three-day … Continue reading A Novel Use for Planners
I'm not a fan of April Fool's Day. I don't like pranks and am always sure to let people know if I suspect they have shenanigans in mind. A particular birthday comes to mind where a friend decided to prank me incessantly even after I expressed my displeasure about it. That was the end for … Continue reading April Fool’s
