So my lovely author friend Tasha Raulerson, whom I co-host a new webcast with, tagged me in a fun blog hop where essentially I just flip through my current manuscript and the first place my cursor lands, I need to take the phrase and that’s a new faux title for my book– EIGHT TIMES. Could […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I was tagged by my new author friend Rachel Simon for the Liebster Award. I have to answer her ten questions about my work-in-progress and then tag some more people and give them my own questions. Since THE TRUTH ABOUT TWO-SHOES recently completed it’s agent round for Pitch Wars (more on that at a later date), […]
Many of the Pitch Wars mentees and alternates organized a fun blog hop for us all to kick off the agent round with a big bang, and I’m honored to get to participate. Not only should you read my post below, but feel free to hop around to the other amazingly talented writers being featured this […]
I’ve been putting off this post because I’m honestly not sure what to say and was, at first, slightly afraid it was a mistake. During the Pitch Wars application process, I got to meet so many cool and talented authors whose books are AMAZING. When close to 1250 authors applied with only 75 getting a main slot, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
So the entries are in and the waiting begins. For those of you who are just now hearing about this, you can read my earlier post about how I entered the TRUTH ABOUT TWO SHOES into Pitch Wars this year.

Sometimes my husband teases me about how I forget my characters aren’t real. Then I remind him how upset he was when a certain character died in my last book, THE CURED, and how he didn’t talk to me for three days. But it’s true. My characters are so real to me, and that’s why during both […]
When I started writing my young adult contemporary, THE TRUTH ABOUT TWO SHOES, I started thinking it was reminiscent of the classic TV show FREAKS AND GEEKS with a bit of the movie 90s movie SAVED! thrown in. Without fail and without prompting, as my beta readers dug in, most would say either: “This reminds of […]
I was a bit hesitant to post this, but people keep asking. When I let the first two people read THE TRUTH ABOUT TWO SHOES, I was terrified. For the first time in a while, I was emotionally invested in what I had written in a way I had never connected before. While I was […]
I was recently tagged in a blog hop by the lovely E.G. Moore who I met through the ‘In With the New’ (#NewAgent) Twitter contest, so I figured I should jump in on the fun too and discuss the book I’ve been slaving over recently, THE TRUTH ABOUT TWO SHOES. What is the name of […]
I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve recently discovered the song for my current work-in-progress, The Truth About Two Shoes (which I mentioned briefly here) and I just had to share. When I write a story, at some point a song will speak to me that really captures everything I feel while I’m writing the story […]
