Progress at last

It feels good to get on with the story of Jo and Sarah. They have so much more of their lives to share with you and I’m proud of the story being told. 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. The first draft is nearly complete. Soon I will begin the editing process.

2018 was life-changing, bring on 2019

Connecting and re-connecting

I recently arrived at a place in my life where I can see my past more clearly. It’s taken me a long time to get here. I know more about myself. I’m coming to grips with hard things I had no control over in my life (and some things I do) and putting some of […]

Music in my head

Whenever I write, I usually have music playing in the background. Sometimes I forget to hit play, and then the music is in my head instead. When I think of something new that I want to add to my story, I add an appropriate song to my playlist. Music is inspiring and beautiful and fun. […]

Synopsis. Wow.

I’m in the process of writing the synopsis for my first book. Wow, this is really hard. I’ve heard others complain about how hard this is. Now I know why. What to say without giving too much away? How to say it?
