Life & Writing + A VIDEO Interview!

Life has been hectic lately. The first week of July led to some pretty big changes in my life that pulled me away from writing. I don't mind these writing breaks like I used to. Some things in life take precedence and I can't get upset over the time I have to spend on important matters in life like health, happiness, love, and real-life adventures.

In the first week of July I moved into a new apartment, started a new job, said goodbye to amazing friends at my old job, and got a tiny kitten named, Fitz. It's amazing how all these "fun" new changes in life can turn out to be some of the most mind-numbingly, stressful events that only time and unrealistic amounts of optimism and patience can get you through.

July is finally coming to an end and with it, some much needed calm. I'm going to need it with a September full of back-to-back work travel and a VIOLET STORM marketing blitz. I've pulled out SNOW DOLLS and have begun writing daily again. To all the fans of VIOLET STORM, I stand by my promise that I'll get to work on the second book, CRIMSON EARTH once SD is in the hands of my editor.

I've received overwhelming positive reviews and feedback on VIOLET STORM and it truly warms my heart and feeds my creative soul. Thank you to everyone for all your tremendous support and encouragement. Big hugs and shout out to all the people who've been spreading the word and encouraging their family and friends to check out the book!

Here are a couple updates I'm pretty excited about!


  • "Violet Storm is a delightful read and well worth the effort. I devoured it in one sitting and have since recommended it to many friends and coworkers. I can't wait for the next book in the series to be released, I'm sure I will love it just as much!" -San Francisco Book Reviews (Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars)



  • I'm pretty excited for the half-page flyers designer, Jason Rought is working on this week in preparation for the upcoming marketing initiatives I'm working on. I'll share them with you soon!
  • The Author Interview I did a few months back with my good friend Anthony Lew is back in the works! We'd love to show you segments of the interview focusing on specific topics. Today's topic is Discovering Writing, Part I.

Here's a photo of our new digs at sunset! Breathtaking!

And meet our little guy, Fitzwilliam Darcy--Fitz for short. ;)
