    A Witchy Mistake Excerpt

    I’m having so much fun writing The Witches of Whispering Pines series. If you enjoy young adult, paranormal, and/or cozy mysteries, I think you’ll enjoy this one. Or, at least I hope you will. Here’s an excerpt from A Witchy Mistake, a novella in the series, which will be FREE to my email subscribers once it’s complete.   Chapter One “Fight! Fight! Fight!” The shouts echoed throughout the hallways of Whispering Pines High School. I pivoted and took off toward the uproar. After all, as a reporter for the school newspaper, it was my job to investigate.  Oh, who was I kidding? I was a normal sixteen-year-old girl and just…

    Free and 99¢ eBooks

    Stuck at Home? Grab some free and 99¢ eBooks! I had a teacher ask about where to find free eBooks for kids and teens during this tumultuous time. So, I asked authors to post their links on a separate blog post linked above. You can also find more books on this Facebook post, although there may be some duplications. Then I thought about all the parents and other readers who might need inexpensive entertainment right now. I know I love to escape into another world when this one gets a little topsy turvy (or really anytime. 🙂 ). I know we’ll rebound but in the meantime… I’m inviting all authors…

    A Writer’s Plan: NaNoWriMo Nov. 2019

    Every November thousands of writers decide to forgo their normal lives in order to write a novel in a month. Crazy, right? Probably. But, also inspirational and challenging. National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo as it’s referred to is a great way to get words written. One can let go of the infernal internal editor and just write. The manuscript can always be cleaned up afterward. But, hitting that goal of at least 50,000 words written in one month is exhilarating. I’m participating again this year with a goal of 50K words. But, I’ll be writing two novellas and beginning the first book in a new series. The first novella…

    New Website, New Logo, and a New Direction

    Hello all! It’s been a long while since I posted anything. But, I have some exciting news to share. I have a new website, new logo, and a new direction for my writing. After a year of stops and starts, I have finally managed to create a brand new website from the ground up. My old one really needed help. I love the new look and my tagline: Finding light within the darkness… No matter what genre I write, including the dark stuff, I enjoy finding the hope and light within my characters and story. I try to leave my readers with hope and good feelings, even though they may…
