The World is Blanketed by a Cloud of Magic…

The world is blanketed by a cloud of magic. It’s warmed beneath a quilt of such diverse colors and fantastical delights that we tend to miss it, assuming it’s only the stuff of fairy stories. We reject the magic because we are too afraid to embrace what we believe will disappear the moment we touch…

Manifest Your Dreams

It’s getting closer. Can you feel it? The rush of success pulsing through your veins. The idea that something more, something so far from your reach but yet so close is on the horizon. I’m ALMOST done with my adult fantasy fiction novel that I’ve been working on for ten years and this is exactly…

Read to Write Better

If you’re not reading, you’re not growing as a writer. I’ve spent the last couple months of the new year immersed in reading and have already finished 19 books. I can honestly say I feel like each book taught me something about writing technique, what works, what doesn’t, new vocabulary, etc. If you want a…

This Odd Void

As I sit here in the quiet, reminiscing on memories of the past, I’m overtaken by this thunderous jolt in my heart. You know the jolt. The kind that zaps you with the force of its honesty just to remind you it’s there and it’s not going to go away until you pursue the path…

Then, and only then, can the words transform into stories that change the world. Then, and only then, can the words come alive and take up substance and space, filling voids in…

Thank you, Rebecca Ross

A lot has happened since my last blog post almost a year ago… My divorce is almost finalized, my heart is healing and my writing is more inspired than it’s ever been. In fact…drum roll, please. I finished my book!!! It has about 86,000+ words and is headed for its sequel. It’s a huge accomplishment,…

You are more than…

I’m writing this post not to discourage anyone; however, I’m dealing with life’s trials and tribulations right now and the only way I find true healing is to write my feelings and breathe for a time. So here goes… I’m getting a divorce. I still hate that word. Feelings of pain, heartbreak and shame rush…

The Pool of Dreams

As I sit here in the silence, I hear my deepest thoughts and desires rushing through my mind like an unstoppable river flowing down, down, down into a vast pool of dreams.  As my thoughts press there weight upon the pool, I feel them sinking beneath the surface, almost fully submerged by the deep water.…
