Opportunities Flow #poem

Its funny how this world, Just always seems to know, Our talents and potential, Soon opportunities flow, Individualized energy, Like a glove and a hand, Slides together and it molds, To life’s growing demand. Don’t chase those dreams, Don’t reach for the stars, Build a trap, Climb a ladder… Success only comes when, We know…

August WIP Writing Challenge BIRTHDAY BASH

Today is my birthday (well, really the whole month *wink*wink*), SOOOO it only makes sense to have my monthly WIP writing challenge be inspired by a birthday theme!!

I MOVED!

Whew, what a year this has been! We’re seven months into 2019 and so far I have released two books Sketch and Justice for Belle, quit my job to be a stay at home writer and mom, I’ve sold my house, bought a new one, painted and remodeled some on the new one, and as of…

Write at Your Own Pace

One thing I’ve learned about writing and blogging over the past few years, is that working at my own pace is imperative.

My Grandma, the PUBLISHED AUTHOR!!!

My Grandma published her western romance novel today! I couldn’t be any more thrilled! Not only to have a grandma of my very own, that’s a writer like me, but to have her step up and publish her work, is absolutely amazing! I’ve mentioned her project before, even wrote a bit of description and review…

A Fish Bowl

One of my favorite songs has a spot in it that says, “We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year.” I haven’t heard this song for quite sometime, and when the tune started to humm through a speaker on my kitchen counter as I explored an old playlist this morning,…

‘Camping Trip’ WIP Writing Challenge #Sketch #NextChapterPub

“Move aside, dirtbag, and hand me the shovel.” Chloe demands. Steven rolls his eyes dramatically, but does what he’s told, knowing full well that eventually Michael will have to step up. Michael’s the only one with the muscle power to pull off the task at hand, and Chloe is the only one stubborn enough to…
