Adios 2020

Writing is Revision

I just saw a memory on my Facebook timeline when almost nine years ago I went to my first writer's conference. I remember how happy I was, I had written the book, gone through some edits, written a query letter, researched agents, and I knew that I'd have that book out into the world quickly […]

My Book's Journey

The journey to publish A Single Girl's Guide to Wedding Survival was long and twisty. In March 2011 my mother was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). She was told that she had 90 days to live. Thus began a crazy regiment to try to keep her alive and the degradation […]

Owning My Borgness

"Resistance is futile" is jokingly our family motto. Hey, if you’re born a Borg and someone starts using your name for a race of unemotional bad guys (yeah, I'm looking at you Star Trek: The Next Generation), you learn to roll with the Sci-Fi stuff for life. Hell, I was even asked to prom with […]

Writing in Uncertain Times

I'm one of the lucky ones and can work from home during this COVID-19 pandemic. The whole situation is energetically weird.
