Happy 2017 & A Progress Report

Happy 2017 fellow adventurers! I had really wanted the next time I posted on here to be able to share with you that I had finished book three, but I realize that probably was a bad goal and so 2016 left us with no goodbyes or reading check-lists or Christmas wishes. That said, I am … Continue reading »

Progress Report

Hello dear readers and fellow adventurers! How are you? Fall is in full swing now. All the fall activities are going like clockwork gears or a juggler’s pins.

A Place in this World

As I’ve looked over this journey to publication and all the stories I’ve written, am writing, and plan to write, I’ve discovered a common thread. Each of my protagonists are looking for a place in their world, their purpose, their identity. In Secrets Kept, we have Ayianna. As a young child, she was uprooted from … Continue reading »

Creative Careers

Sometimes I sit back and think: What am I doing? I’m sure many creatives struggle with balancing reality with dreams. Chasing desires of expression and art. How does art fit in with our world of jobs and bills and responsibilities? It’s an interesting contemplation. One, I think, circles forever and could very well make us … Continue reading »

Creatives at Work

Earlier this month, Kristen Lamb blogged: A Culture Addicted to FREE: How Free is Poisoning the Internet and Killing the Creatives. It’s a good, thought-provoking article. The mentality of wanting something for nothing isn’t new. It’s tempting, isn’t it? Who doesn’t want something for free or get a good deal on it? I know deep down … Continue reading »

In my quest to live a life balanced between reality and dreams, I’m discovering how much I’m out of balance. Ha!

Dress for Success?

How many of you have heard the mantra: Dress for Success? This past fall/winter has felt a little like crawling out of the dark ages, and I’m ready to embrace the new year. Or at least trying to and wondering what will help to get my head in the game. I started thinking about the … Continue reading »

Happy 2016!

Greetings Fellow Adventurers! Wow, what a crazy year 2015 was! I feel like I can’t quite jump into the new year without a little recap: Our bedroom flooded, which resulted in digging out the foundation, which got my hubby in super-work-dude mode. And he went on to build a storage shed and tearing down our … Continue reading »
