I Love Writing

My last post for this blog was in August and it was titled, Is it Wrong For A Writer to Hate Writing. At that time, I barely ever wrote because taking care of my toddler was a full-time job. As of last week, my son started preschool 4 days a week for half days. Now […]


Is it Wrong for a Writer to Hate Writing?

This may sound strange but, I have nothing to say…. Facebook status updates, Twitter, blog posts = nothing, nada, blank empty space. I hate that kind of writing. I love the creative writing that forms pages that become chapters that result in books. But trying to wax poetic in these short trendy forums is excruciating.


I Just Read My First E-book

I’m a lover of technology. I enjoy the latest and greatest of whatever Best Buy can offer me…. Except when it comes to e-books. I’ve been intentionally dragging my feet in that area. You’ll never convince me that an electronic device can emulate the tactile experience of holding a paperback book. I refuse to give […]

Alternatives to Traditional Writing

Since I relaunched this blog, there has been a recurring theme: how difficult it is to write with a small child.

With only two months to go before I turn forty, I had to ask myself, “What do you want to accomplish before your fortieth birthday?” Thankfully I published my first book in […]

Happy New Year

The tagline on my current release, Romancing the Chef, says “New Year, New Love.”  For me, this year is about getting reacquainted with an old love of mine… writing.  Since becoming a mom in 2009, my relationship with writing has been on the rocks.  I seriously think writing has considered leaving me.  We don’t spend time together […]


Sneak Preview: Romancing the Chef

My new book Romancing the Chef, is near and dear to my heart because it’s a sequel to my very first book Promise Me. Over the years, fans often asked when Veronica Howard from Promise Me would get her own story.  I’m pleased to say that her story is finally here.  Sassy chef Ronnie is […]

I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t really updated my site since my son was born in 2009. I know I’m a rare breed, but it seems I’m one of those people who can only do one thing at a time, and for the past 21 months, that thing has been motherhood. But I realize, […]
