Excerpt from book two…

Now that Jo is gone, I’m distraught that she left. I’m mad at her for leaving, I’m feeling guilty for making her go, and I’m absolutely positive that she doesn’t love me anymore. My mind is racing. Suddenly my chest feels heavy, my heart is pounding, and I can’t breathe. I call out for my mom, and she comes running. At the hospital, I am told that I had a panic attack.

My working title for book two of the Coffee and Emeralds series has the words Crimson and Amber in it. If you’ve read my first book, then you got a sneak peek at the beginning of the second book.

2018 was life-changing, bring on 2019

New Year, new books.  Coffee and Emeralds, book two is in the works and my goal is to release it by May.  I’m hoping for the end of this new year for book three, but I have other books in the works and will likely get those done prior to book three.

Now that my author update is out of the way, on to more personal things.

I want to wish all of you a very happy, fulfilling, and productive new year.  I want it for myself also and will strive to make it happen.  Positive thinking I tell you.  Positive thinking.
