I have been under an enormous amount of stress lately, financially as well as in my career. I am trying to eat right and get enough sleep, but I find myself short on time. Even when I have an hour or so, I find myself just mindlessly watching TV or movies or scrolling through social... Read more »

Ten days ago, my world was full of promise as I completed the final draft of my book Suppression, and began the process of acquiring an agent to get it published.

“My search for something different brought me here tonight”

“My search for something different brought me here tonight”
I will always love the first two books that I wrote. They definitely hold a special place in my heart, but my newest book was a gift.
