Books that sweep you off your feet, and tie you to the chair.
Writing has long since been a passion of mine, helping me to explore the world around me as I build worlds of my own. I take pride in creating characters that feel more like old friends, or even rivals, than two dimensional words on a page. I write stories that make people feel something.
With the support of my husband and my family, despite the interference of pets climbing between my hands and the keys, I pour my heart and soul into my books.

When trying to find a metric to measure your story by, word count seems to be the go-to. That’s how you separate novellas from novels, flash fiction from short stories. Too often, people get hung up on the length of their story, trying to pigeonhole it into a specific category. But you know what? Your …
Should you write with curse words? This question gets bandied about in writing groups far too often. It seems like people are afraid to break certain rules, and cussing is just one of those things where readers either don’t care at all or they care A LOT. And the people who care A LOT about …
