I'll be having my final book signing for Shadows of Ghosts this coming Saturday, January 27th from 1:00-3:00 at the Learned Owl Bookstore in Hudson, Ohio. These last couple months have flown by so fast- I know when I scheduled this it seemed so far away! A big thanks to all of my readers and … Continue reading Final SoG Book Signing!!!
So it's always the same thing whenever I sit down to start a new project. Am I all written out? Are the ideas going to come? And if they don't, what am I going to do? I've spent the past month finishing up (my) final edits on Book 2 and getting ready to send it … Continue reading Insecurities, Successes and Coffee
This morning I realized, a little bit too late, that 2017 is almost over. I can't even begin to tell you half of what happened this year, because it's pretty much a blur of missed doctor's appointments and deadlines barely met, and I'm pretty sure that next year will be more of the same.

Wow, I was truly humbled on Saturday at the turnout for my book release party. Tons of people came out to help me celebrate the occasion, I (think) my little speaking part wasn't a total disaster, and we had lots of good food and drinks and laughs. There were lots of really good questions that … Continue reading Thank You!!!
Sooo....I'm planning my first ever book release party and I am a complete nervous wreck! Not because I can't plan a party, 'cause I can plan a heck of a party, but because I am going to have to, at some point, stand up and actually talk in front of people. Not something I'm … Continue reading Book Release Party!!!
Yes! It's almost here again. THE MONTH! The time of year when it feels like you simply have to write every single day. The month when you make any and all excuses to sneak away and tap out a couple of words, or, if you're lucky, actual, complete sentences. The month when your husband is … Continue reading NaNoWriMo
The day we arrived in Charleston she was underwater, as she often was, after every drenching summer rain. It was disconcerting, dodging the hordes of tourists, umbrellas braced against the downpour, winding our way around knee deep water at every intersection. Charleston, I’d thought, would be a proper setting for my story, rich with … Continue reading Sometimes It Is All About The Destination
“The only way to their future is through the past.” I am ridiculously excited about today! In a pinch-me kind of way! After years of work, and about fifty- probably more- edits, this story is finally ready to be unveiled. I’ve been asked for a longer excerpt from the book, so here it is: …Ian … Continue reading Release Day!!!
