This is not a drill…

It’s finally November 20th!! Yay!!I am so happy that my book is finally available!No one ever tells you as an author how absolutely nerve-racking publishing a book is.But now that it’s finally here, I’m just so happy and relieved. This post is going to serve as a reminder that I’m never doing a pre-order again. Haha, my nerves just can’t handle it. It’s like being excited the night before the first day of school for 60 days.I just wanted to say thank you again to all of you who follow my blog and my social mediaContinue reading “This is not a drill…”


I feel like time slips by, and I don’t even know where it goes. It’s October 20th already! Halloween is right around the corner! November 20th is coming soon!! If you haven’t checked out Through the Silent Forst preorder options on my website, please do! Being a first-time “real” published author is a lot harder than I expected. With the paper shortage and things out of wack, it’s thrown me for a little bit of a loop trying to navigate getting my book out there. So as readers, please keep in mind that books (any booksContinue reading “EEEK!!!”

Always Books

Hi! So as always, I have been a very busy author, and yet I have no idea where my time goes.  This website is a love/hate relationship for me. Haha. I am not tech-savvy at all and have lots of assistance when it comes to creating the pages and content that goes on them.  I did add an art page that I will frequently be updating over the next few months as it gets closer to my book being released.  I will also soon be adding a shop page with direct links to purchasing books andContinue reading “Always Books”

I swear I’m a writer and I don’t just hang out on the beach.

Hi Everyone, I feel like every month, or so my brain suddenly realizes that I haven’t done a post in a while. July has just flown by, and I can’t believe it’s already the first of August. While I’ve been incredibly productive, I have also taken a lot of personal time in July to rest, recuperate and get back to writing my works in progress. My book Though the Silent Forest, is slowly inching closer every day to its completion, which is both exciting and absolutely terrifying. The cover is just about complete, so I should beContinue reading “I swear I’m a writer and I don’t just hang out on the beach.”


I feel as if I’ve been saying Through the Silent Forest is coming… since forever, and it is. Slowly. I had several people on social media reach out to me lately and ask when, and I wish I had an answer. The answer to that… along with my book is, it’s coming soon. My editor did surprise me by getting the first round of edits done fairly quickly. Then, I agonized over approving and denying changes. Approving editing changes took me over a week to do.  Not even that there was much to change, fix or edit. ItContinue reading “Slowly….”

Hey, I have been M. I. A. lately on my website and social media. It has been a busy few weeks with moving and getting resettled, but I am happy to say everything went smoothly, and now it’s time for me to get back to it. Since the launch of The Gorgon and the Stranger, it has done very well, and the personal feedback I’ve gotten has been excellent and very kind. I hope you all got the chance to read it and enjoyed the story. I am pleased to announce, perhaps a little too late, thatContinue reading “Time Never Stops”
