Back to School

The 2019-2020 school year has officially begun for me at least. Tomorrow starts the 2nd week back and I am already overwhelmed and tired. Two different preps, but a lot of wonderful students who make my day enjoyable and manageable. But when is Christmas break again? My writing sadly has been pushed to the wayside…

Life Changing

It has been 8 days since Jean Stone was released to the world. As I sit and reflect on those days, I realize a lot of things have changed. I still have NO idea what I am doing in this industry, but I enjoy writing and that is all that matters to me. I have…

My unconventional story

Since this is a place where you can get to know me. I will start off by telling my story on the road to publishing. Years ago, a little girl wanted to be a country singer so she sat down and started writing her own lyrics. Fast forward 20 years later and we see that…
