A writer of young adult fiction specializing in self-publishing, creativity, and writing.

I’ve been wanting to dive a bit deeper lately into what I do. Since switching over to full-time writing again last September (September 2020), I’ve been readjusting to the life and schedule of writing full-time.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update, so I figure it’s about time. I’ve been busy lately. I just finished a new book, a beautiful ghostly story about two sisters. I’m not planning to self-publish this one, but am hoping to find an agent or a press that will pick it up, which …

If you’re a 2017 NaNoWriMo participant, then you know today is halfway day! I hope your novel writing journey is going fantastically! Me, I’m exactly on target, though I’m hoping to write more tonight and finish at least one day ahead. My trusty NaNo mug has been reminding me to write. I’ve also been attempting …

It’s another year of NaNoWriMo, and as usual I’m flipping up and down with both motivation and inspiration. I had a great weekend marathon-ing with one of my writing groups. I drank plenty of coffee, brought out my favorite soundtracks (The Hobbit), and not only caught up on my word count but got a couple …
