As any author will attest, there are times in your life when being an author is extremely difficult.

So I’m all for finding resources to help me become a better writer and encourage me along the way!Continue reading
Two posts in one day? That’s such a rarity for me, but I had the honor of being interviewed by my good friend Grace Johnson over at her blog. You can check out the interview here! Grace is a fellow author (Held Captive, Bound and Determined, as well as several short stories), so be sure to check out her books and the rest of her blog. She’s a great interviewer, and I had so much fun answering her wonderful questions – thanks again, Grace! 🙂

(Thank you a million times, too!) So after the Typo Queen is done with her editing, I have one more time through the book, and then it’s off to the races.Continue reading

Today is such an exciting day! I am thrilled to be revealing the cover of Unknown to the world!Continue reading
If you’re an author, you know what I’m talking about.
