I’ll never forget that feeling when Funny Girl won the Golden Quill. Knowing that my writing inspired so many is what kept me going even after years of debiltating writers block. Thank you. Thank you, Desert Rose RWA for honoring Mean Girl. I AM BACK!
That title says it all. After several years of crippling writer’s block, I am finally able to go back to my creative hobby. I cried as I typed the ending to Mean Girl. Please let me know what you think.
I am getting close to finishing up Mean Girl. I am pleased with where the story is taking me! I hope to post a cover reveal soon.
I log on to my website and see that the last post was in November of 2016. That doesn’t surprise me. My life took a climactic turn on August 31, 2016. That is when I decided to choose happiness over turmoil. It finally became clear that my emotional security was in jeopardy. I didn’t know that my physical safety would be threatened in the process. But life is a journey. We learn and grow. I am ready for my new life. I have started writing again, albeit slowly. As anyone that has recovered from a traumatic event knows, baby steps are needed. I hope to pop in here more often.
The school year has started and that means I’m back to working three jobs. I always find myself overwhelmed in September as I “get used” to my school year schedule. Alas, I wrote three full length novels among my insane work life so I know I can do it again. There will be a few changes to the Girl Series list. I am embarrassed to admit that I try to go and make changes to my website and it looks so crappy. I have an information science degree but graphic design is not my strong point. Therefore, I may wait and try to save some money to get my web designer to do it right.
Here are some updates:
Book 4, Smart Girl, will be out in early 2016
A new idea of mine, Mean Girl, will hopefully be released in December. This will be a full length novel.
Lauren’s story will be another year or two down the line so I will be releasing Dream Girl next month. Dream Girl is a novella and was written as an introduction to Lauren’s story and I loved it. I decided it was silly to wait so long to release it.
I have a novella, Tough Girl, that will be released in an anthology in February. More details on that exciting project later!
