Does Anyone Even Read the Bible Anymore Anyway…?

When’s the last time you read through the entire Bible? This is how I feel when people ask me that question, even though I’m an avid-Bible reader: It’s okay if your answer is “Never” or “A looooong time ago.” And for those of you answering, “I’ve already read through it ‚Ķ Continue reading

Are You Reading Enough?

If you’re reading this post, that means that you’re probably a reader, an author, or a lost internet-wanderer. ūüėČ (I’m glad you found me!) Basically, it means you probably have a thing for¬†books. You are¬†so not alone. But I want to take a moment and talk to the writers out ‚Ķ Continue reading

Which Character from the Out of Time Series Would You Spend Valentine’s Day With?

In lieu of Valentine’s Day, I thought it’d be fun to share how each of the characters from the Out of Time Series might tackle the rabidly pink “holiday.” And, because I haven’t done a post on¬†my books in a while, I hoped it’d be a nice change from the ‚Ķ Continue reading

Sorry, but you can’t be a perfectionist AND an author.

Many authors¬†try to be perfectionists — I once considered myself one, too — but I’m here ‚Ķ Continue reading

What Makes You Buy a Book?

Your “Age” Is Defined by Your Attitude…Not a Number.

“Never ask a woman’s age.” “Be thankful you’re young.” “Just wait until you’re older and can’t¬†do that anymore.” I’ve heard all of these statements over and over and over again and I bet you have, too. Perhaps, like me, it made you bite your nails when you were younger about ‚Ķ Continue reading

How to Keep Writing Even When You Hate Your Story

You may have noticed I didn’t blog last week. That’s because I was in Florida…without my computer…barely¬†remembering to¬†eat let alone put smartish words onto a website. My first thought when I realized I¬†had to skip my blog post was… “2017 IS DOOOOOOOMED!” I mean, who starts of their brand new, ‚Ķ Continue reading
