This is me…right now.

I am privileged to be part of a local Christian writers group that meets once a month. Sometimes we have presenters for topics. This past Monday, we had a writing exercise after discussing "Mission Statements." "Mission Statement" = fancy phrase for "this is me...right now." Let me share mine with you: I tell honest stories... Continue Reading →

Announcing “Mercy”

In just over a month, my newest novella will be released into the wild! Here’s the gist (or “back cover copy,” if you’re feeling high-and-mighty): Everything changed for Mercy Benson after the argument with her husband. Leaving behind the taxi horns and clamor of New York, the young widow follows her mother-in-law to the sleepy... Continue Reading →

Save the Drama

I was a dramatic teenager. I can admit that now (and hear my mom cackling at me for admitting the truth). This is evidenced by my poems in an old journal that I wrote during my high school years. Let me clarify: this was not a “journaling” journal. This green notebook, with my mom’s name... Continue Reading →

This is my book baby, the first one. And I indie published, even though I have an agent. You can... Continue Reading →

13 Days

I’m thirteen days away from my debut release. And this isn’t the dream I’ve clutched since I wrote halting poems about the robins outside or the nativity set my parents painted long before I was born. I went to Mount Hermon a handful of years ago with my good friend Hannah Prewett. And we both... Continue Reading →

I Am A Failure

Had an interesting conversation with a friend recently. She commented about the header on my blog (A sarcastic Christian author taking the the publishing world by rejection at a time). She mentioned that " kinda sounds like you don't think much of yourself." So I admitted to her: I don't. At all. Let me... Continue Reading →
