Back from the Festival!


I’m BACK!!!

As you may know, this past weekend was the Frederick Book Festival. Last year I went as a reader and had fun. This time I had my own table and had a blast!

I met a lot of other authors and readers. We all had a good time laughing, joking and getting to know each other. By the end of the day, I think the biggest hit of the night may have been my daughter LOL. She was floating from table to table talking with everyone. She really is a social butterfly!

Now I’m going to get back into the swing of things. I’ll be working on something this week, what it is, I’m not completely sure yet… but hey, that’s how it usually is with me 🙂

Anyways! See you next time!!!

A Newsletter!


Hi Everyone!

I have to admit, the past few weeks I’ve basically taken a vacation. I haven’t been working on anything except for my daughter’s Halloween and Convention costume (She’s going to be a Keyblade Warrior of Light from Wonderland… yeah, she’s all about Kingdom Hearts at the moment LOL).

And then over the weekend a cousin of mine called and we started talking. She’s really good when it comes to bouncing ideas off of. One of the things she mentioned was running a newsletter again.

I had 1 for about 15 minutes years and years ago. But it fell to the wayside because I had almost nothing to say. Now, I’m coming into contact with more people and there are a few more things I can talk about now.

So if you look at the top of the blog post you’ll see a new page called Newsletter Signup. If you want a few exclusives and or a few giveaways feel free to sign up!

Talk to you soon!!

Mad Dash…


Hey everyone!

This has been a really busy week for me. My daughter graduated 5th grade, and my mother’s birthday was yesterday. After everything was said and done, my bank account hates me and I feel like I may have a few extra grey hairs (on top of the ones I already dyed.)

So imagine my despair when I look for the flash drive that has just about ALL of my writing, and can’t find it!!!!

Yeah, I’m pretty much freaking out.

Good news: I’ve looked all over the place and have narrowed it down to 1 room in my house… bad news: that room is covered in clothes, and it will be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

But I can buy myself a little time. Victor and Leigh aren’t really talking to me, and I have a copy of One for Sorrow someplace else too. The story I was kicking around in the meantime was about to be re-written. So while I’m a little stressed, I’m not about to slam my head in a door or something because I can’t lay my eyes on it right now.

Anyway, I have an office to straighten up, a room to clean, and a story to rewrite. I’ll see you all later!!!

Hi Everyone!!!

I’ve reached a milestone with this blog. This is my 100th post!!! 🙂

I wanted there to be a lot of fanfare, and I wanted to have something really epic to say.

Really, I got nothing.

But it isn’t all bad news!!!

One for Sorrow is still being edited. I wanted to be able to upload it Kindle and Nook, but I’d rather have a polished novel than an early release.

The Frederick Book Festival is less than a month away! I have pens on order, my books and bookmarks are all ready to go and my tablecloth should be here in a matter of days (yes, the little things excite me LOL). I hope to gain some readers, as well as connect with any already in the Maryland area.

I have a minor confession to make. These past few months, I’ve been in a really bad place. I’ve been stressed out and ready to snap. I haven’t been able to really write since I finished OfS. Nothing has been coming to me. But the night before last I was able to get a few words down. I’m not sure where it’s going or even if it will develop into something else. Of course I hope it does, but for right now, I’m hoping it will at least help me get past these feelings of epic failure that I’ve been dealing with.

ANYWAY!!!! This is supposed to be a HAPPY post!!!!! I’ve been trying my hands at at-home-bartending. So far, I’ve made a Blue Hawaiian, Piña Colada, and a virgin Strawberry Daiquiri… There are a few more recipes that I’m gonna cry. I just have to find a few lab rats… I mean volunteers to try them 🙂

I’ll keep everyone updated on what I’m doing. Hopefully a few of you can get out to Frederick MD on 6-28-14 for the festival.

Hope to see you there!!!!
Later Folks!!!!
