I know it’s a Monday, and good things usually avoid Monday like the plague, but I had a happy email today and wanted to share it. Sooooo….

Writing Process Blog Tour

This is a travelling blog tour that pops up every Monday for writers to share a little about what, how and why they write.

Time To Announce…

I have been seeking agent representation for a while. My process has been slow because making sure I had the right fit is very important, and I’ve had a few other life events which have taken my focus.

The People of 2010 – Part V

<--This little saying could not be more perfect for the two friends I had the distinct pleasure of meeting this year. Both ladies are warm, caring, and wicked wordsmiths.
