The judges' mini-reviews are so helpful, and it's great to see what stands out most to them. Judges get … Continue reading SFR Galaxy Awards for 2019!
However you mark the turning of the wheel of the year, I hope you're all enjoying a bit of down time, lovely food, and nourishing company. Holiday season can mean full schedules and empty energy wells. Around the holidays, it's even more important to me to minimize time with people and activities that draw from … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
The holiday season is always busy, and I find myself getting lost in to-do lists and missing out on really enjoying the wonderful experiences around me. Every year I tell myself I'll do better the next year, but then forget how exactly I thought I might go about that. This year, I've decided to make … Continue reading Lessons Learned
A year ago today, Whispering Hearts, the second Summer Park Psychics book, was released into the world. This book will always have a special place in my heart because it includes my favorite hero I've written so far—Garrett Wolfstrom: Hunky Doctor ❤ It was also my first "second book in a series". Publishing a title … Continue reading Happy Anniversary, Whispering Hearts!
What I'm happy about this week: I'm on vacation! There are so many things making me happy this week, I couldn't pick just one.

Here are the highlights, starting with...I saw my first … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Thirteen

Wishing you warmth, love, and happiness through this season … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Eleven
What I’m happy about this week: finishing projects. I've had a heck of a lot of irons in the fire lately, and it feels really good to clear out the coals, so to speak. One of the projects is the hat, scarf, and wrist warmer set above, that just came off the needles yesterday. I … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Ten
What I’m happy about this week: binge-reading Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series. Have you read these yet? Because seriously, Ms. Hunter knows how to write. I just discovered the series recently, and have been plowing through them ever since. I'm adding reviews for these on Goodreads as I make my way through the books. I … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Nine
What I'm happy about this week: having an action plan. I always do better when I have an idea of where I'm heading, what's important to me, and what I want to be working on each day—or even each moment. I made a list of areas that I want to keep in my focus. I … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Eight
What I'm happy about this week: the changing leaves of Autumn. It seems like the lighting is always perfect to make the leaves shimmer and shine. The reds are my favorite, but the golds are also something special. When they're all mixed in on one tree, with a little bit of green remaining, the effect … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Six
