What’s Up?

Dream along with us …

  • Why?
    Why are you doing this? My husband asked me when Reverie was ready to be published. They say there are no stupid questions. On the flip side, I maintain that there are very, very good ones. This was one of the best. Writing is Art. It’s a passion. It’s fun. It’s fulfilling. Publishing, on theContinue reading “Why?”
  • The Collective
    I’m a big believer in community over competition. Particularly in the writing community. It’s a unique environment that actually supports this philosophy. You would have to go out of your way to be toxic to find conflict. And yes, I’ve met some pretty toxic authors. It absolutely boggles me. You may as well shoot yourselfContinue reading “The Collective”
  • Equilibrium
    And just like that, it’s February. One of the few things I got done last month was visualize my goals for the year and actually make a plan for them. It sounds simple but I found it more challenging than I want to admit.  I want to dream big but I also don’t want toContinue reading “Equilibrium”
  • 2022
    I know we’re closer to the end of January than we are to the first of the year. My desire to meet 2022 head on with the steady momentum of regular blog posts and writing goals has hit a flat before the starting line. I’d very much like to blame it all on the thingsContinue reading “2022”

    Revenant launches in 25 days. London Evans thought she was just an ordinary teenager navigating an ordinary life of high school drama and family responsibilities. That was until her ordinary life was interrupted by extraordinary dreams. Dreams that were real.Like, Ethan, the mystery boy with a strange accent and golden-green eyes. He once was justContinue reading “Revenant”

  • 365
    One year ago today, we scheduled Reverie for release. Technically, Reverie didn’t see the public until July but our official publication date was listed as June 1st, 2020. I finished the first draft of Reverie in 2009. My soon-to-be-although-I-didn’t-know-it-at-the-time husband casually mentioned that it would make for a good short story. It ended up beingContinue reading “365”

    Another beam of light danced through my open window, running from my unkempt desk all the way to the Benjamin Moore sample squares I had tacked on the wall with painter’s tape.   It took less than two seconds for the beam to complete its visit and in that same amount of time I’ve thought ofContinue reading “Dreamstate”
