At last, I'm ready to talk about my fertility journey. There is so much to say, I'm actually overwhelming myself 😅. I figured the best way to start is with how I finally surrendered to the universe, got over myself and my pride, and went to the doctor. Before we start, this is where I … Continue reading Why I Waited to Pursue Fertility Treatment
Genre-bending for the Win!
Writing in one genre isn’t for me. There are so many facets to who I am and what I’m interested in -- I tend to dance between genres based on what feels right at the time and what makes me happy. My first novel, Love Isn’t Always on Time, is a paranormal romance-horror-comedy written as … Continue reading Genre-bending for the Win!
Opinion: Reviewing Books as an Author
As you know, I’m an author. I’m also a bookstagrammer. I don’t have many people “in real life” I can talk to about books, so the book community on Instagram lets me do that with artsy photography. It’s a really fun hobby I’m not always consistent with since I only post when I’m motivated, truly … Continue reading Opinion: Reviewing Books as an Author
How My Perspective on Writing Changed…

I'm frequently divinely guided to spiritual books through my intuition, and when I found this one, I expected it to be just that -- another spiritual … Continue reading Law of Attraction: on Writing
What I Wish I Knew Before Self-Publishing…
Here's what I already knew: Without the marketing of a traditional publishing house, I wouldn't sell as many copies, especially at the beginning. I'm okay with that. I just wanted to finally get my book out there, and I wanted to keep my voice authentic without an editor changing it. All I can do now … Continue reading What I Wish I Knew Before Self-Publishing…
I wanted to do something that's never been done before. Essentially, Love Isn't Always on Time is an experience almost like you're watching an eccentric 80's movie at home, but you're reading it as a young adult paranormal romance-horror-comedy set in 1988 instead. To fit with the "movie" theme, I put in a "soundtrack" with … Continue reading LIAOT Soundtrack
How was Love Isn’t Always on Time born?
You’re watching an 80’s movie. A new wave soundtrack carries you through the supernatural madness of Sadie’s seventeenth summer. A ghost, a multidimensional witch, and a demon are quite the trio spinning Sadie’s universe out of control. Can she fight off her own demons to save her sister’s soul? When I was 15, I sat … Continue reading How was Love Isn’t Always on Time born?
