Looking Forward

It’s been a while since I posted. I’ve been super busy with two releases this fall and NaNoWriMO. When things get crazy busy, my blog is one of the things that I let slide. I also tend not to engage as much when I’m not in a good space because I want this to a positive place to come. This year has been a tough one, I’ve had some wonderful things happen amid the devastating loss of my brother-in-law. I’ve learned a lot about grief. And I’ve learned how much writing is my go-to place when I’m working through things.

In 2020 I plan to release a new series, start a new creative project, and keep up with this blog. I will be adding a podcast feature so that if you don’t have time to read my posts, you can download them and listen to them. Screen fatigue is real, and podcasts offer a break for your eyes.

I’m taking some time off to spend with my family over the holidays and will be back in January with a brand new release. My foray into paranormal romance, a duology with Megan Hart will arrive January 27th and I’ll share some snips in before then. Until then, I wish you peace and happiness and love.
