Transitions & Blog Close


Sometimes life transitions usher you into unfamiliar territory. Territories that can change the trajectory of your life.

This year started out with the harsh reality of losing my mom in February. After this devastation, things weren’t the same anymore.


The sun didn’t shine as bright, my heart didn’t beat as fast, and my inner purpose didn’t energize my soul.

There were other transitions like career changes and redirection for both myself and my husband, my first born son leaving for college (the house feels weird without him), and the fact I haven’t been writing or working on my novel since my mom moved to heaven (I can’t seem to get into the creative groove).


I’ve been ushered into new territories and I’m in the process of trying to reclaim my path, chart new roads, and make peace with the broken pieces.

Therefore, I’ve decided to suspend this blog indefinitely (since I haven’t been showing up for it anymore) and make peace with my absence here.

However, regardless of the detours thrown my way, I’ll still be publishing more novels. And you can still find me here and here, and also here if you want to stay updated on all my author shenanigans. 🙂

Sending you love and light. Shine on!


Sweet Aroma of Thankfulness


The Free eBook “Gift of Giving” campaign was a wonderful success! Yippee!

My novel Sifting Through Mud reached #13 on Amazon’s Top 100 Best Sellers List for the Kindle eBooks/Women’s Fiction category during the 4-day FREE promo period.

Thank you to the 2,747 people who got their free eBook and helped me reach the Top 100 list. I’m truly grateful for all the interest in the book, which exceeded my expectations for the promotion. I was hoping for at least 500 people, but 2,747 was enormously better (divine icing on the cake).

So again……

Yes, I’ve been MIA (missing in action) for several months on this blog, but it’s time to resurrect this place and bring it back to life. There’s been so much going on with me (personally and professionally) that other projects have taken up the bulk of my time. Unintentionally, this has caused my blog to fall on the back burner.

I’m trying to live the motto, “Work Smarter Not Harder.” Therefore, resurrecting this blog means only one thing: I’ll show up more than usual. However, “more than usual” doesn’t mean more frequently.

The scheduling for these blog posts will be on an as-needed basis whenever information (or inspiration) arises that I’ll want to share.

Currently, I’m working on several things and hoping to finish them sooner more than later—my next two novels being among them.

In the meantime, you can interact with me more frequently on my Facebook Author Page, or on Twitter. I seem to be in those places more than I’m here on this blog. Mostly because I can post stuff there more quickly instead of having to write full blog articles.

You can also join my mailing list for author news updates, information, and freebies. Your email won’t be bombarded by joining because I only send out updates a few times a year.

Catch ya soon!
