Welcome Comrades! To all my fellow writers in the struggle or who have survived the struggle (because let’s face it, it’s really one or the other) I say, Thank you for visiting my site, checking out the Blog.
Please feel free to browse about as I have updated the site recently and will only post new material about once a month going forward. Mostly about my writing journey and/or books I’m currently reading (kind of a book-clubby vibe). Currently, I’m polishing one novel, editing another and making notes for a third. Oy!
Whatever you write, whatever you’re working on, speak you’re truth. Be honest, tell the story you want to tell in the best way you know how.
I write Contemporary Fiction/Women’s Fiction. Particularly, my characters are ordinary people put under high-pressure circumstances that push their internal emotional boundaries on a wide array of social and moral consciousness to include mental health, addiction, social injustice, socioeconomic struggle, racism and work-related inequality.
We need diverse books. Don’t be afraid to express yourself. #ownvoices
A few Favorites from me:
Favorite time to write: Daytime is the most productive for me. I have a day job so I write before work, on my lunch break and a little before dinner.
Favorite Book: As of today, it’s “Reconstructing Amelia” by Kimberly McCreight.
Favorite Author: Yikes, just one! John Saul, Stephen King, Sylvia Day, Kimberly McCreight, Jodi Picoult, Toni Morrison, Zane, Kristin Hannah, Nora Roberts, and Jane Austen. I love so many more but these are my absolute favorites.
Favorite Character: A tie between Amelia from Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight and Elinor from Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.
Favorite Color: Red.
Favorite Food: Come on. Everything.
Favorite Sound: Good music.
