I AM YOU, YOU ARE HER, SHE IS ME

Insipid

This is so random. I was browsing through my You Tube account, trying to put together some credentials for a project, and started to watch the videos for my book releases. I think my all time favorite has got to be the Insipid trailer that Becca from Bibliophile Productions had created for the book’s release. […]

When the World Goes Silent

I’ve always struggled to keep up with social media, stress about Facebook and Instagram posts every single day. What do I say? What should I post? Everything for me has been quite a thought process –  just being a private person who needs to separate my two lives, requires extra care when posting things for […]

Older and Bolder

Allow me to explain why I’d resisted it for so long. I work in an industry where youth symbolizes the infusion of new ideas, running at warp speed to keep up, even when everything else about you is dying to slow down. At work, I’m surrounded by people half my age who are telling me […]

Hope Springs

Whew. I’m here and I’ve missed you all! Hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the change in seasons. Crazy isn’t exactly the word I have for this past month. More like fulfilling, enriching, exciting, challenging. And yes, maybe a little crazy too. This month, I found myself attending a day meeting in San Francisco, […]

Fate and Friendship

The words aren’t coming as easily as they have in the past. And I wanted to do justice to this post because of all the feelings I’ve been wanting to convey in the week that has come and gone. It wasn’t like we’d never planned a get together before in our group. People have such […]

Those Days in the Dark I

Let’s assume it’s been three years since your life was changed forever. You know, the type of event that catches you by surprise, grabs you by the shoulders, shakes you and pushes your face against the cold, hard ground. Nothing’s been the same since then. It changed you, changed who you are and it definitely […]

Riddle Me This

In the past two weeks, I’ve learned a very important lesson. That we live and breathe within seconds of an intersection, a calamity, a joyous moment, a colossal change. That our past will always surface and that the truth will always come out. It’s amazing how you think you can live your life in parallel, […]

About That Box

One thing that’s prevalent around my house every Christmas season is the tremendous amount of boxes that I receive every day in December. With an utterly explosive work schedule, it’s been tough getting the time I need to do any Christmas shopping.  And so here I sit by my front door, besieged and invaded by […]

You are the BRAND

So this year, I had a plan. I wanted to release “In This Life“ in January, stop writing, focus on my real job and work on strengthening my brand.As you know by now, the stop writing part was a bust.  Eight Goodbyes is finished, and will be in the hands of Jim Thomas (my editor) right […]

Every Mother’s Journey

It all starts out the same. You’re young, you fall in love once or twice  and then you get swept off your feet by the man you want to build a life with. You’re happy, he’s happy, your parents are happy, his parents are happy. You have a baby at 25 and another one at […]

The Art of Letting Go -Part I

I learned a very important lesson this week. I wouldn’t have believed it until things started happening, falling into place. I had to tie everything back to my decision weeks ago, to let go of the things that weren’t good for me. Big things, little things, anything that weighed me down instead of lifting me […]
