Realizing Your Dreams, June 2016

I remember it like it was yesterday. The Dreams Convention attendees were all gathered ’round, hugging, crying, and exclaiming how they must find a way to get together again, how they must go away for another weekend and write. A siren blared in my head, like a call to arms. I looked around at all…

Happy Hanukkah, Chanukkah, Hanukah…

Hannukkah, Shifters, and Latkes, Oh My! Happy Holidays, one and all! Today is the first night of Hanukkah, or Chanukah, or Chanukkah, or Hanukah. Yes, there are a number of ways to spell the holiday’s name, but for me, only one way to celebrate… with family, friends, and lots of fabulous foods! So, Hanukkah is…

A Wounded Soul Heals, Doesn’t It?

The ANGEL has risen! Witness the miracle…

When I started writing Angel Rising, I had no idea the enormous hold it would have on me. I got halfway through the darn thing and realized that this book would be the most intense, the most heart-wrenching, and the longest I’d ever written. That’s right, I was sitting at 50K words and still had…

NEW YEAR, new lease on life…

How many times have we made resolutions that only days later we don’t keep? PLENTY! Well, I knew, for me to make any kind of change in my lifestyle, it would take a doctor saying, “You gotta change because you’re hurting yourself.” Well, that’s what’s happened over the course of last few months. On a…
