Is Christmas in July really a thing?

The idea of Christmas in July has totally become a thing, but even before it was, I used to wish I could celebrate Christmas all year long. As a kid, I really enjoyed the whole “feel” of Christmas. This was back when October was Halloween, November was harvest and Thanksgiving, and it wasn’t until December[…]

Looking for ARC Readers

Flower Essences

I sit here staring at a blank screen because every prior attempt to blog has been an abject failure. I struggle with which parts of myself to release into the public/online given a strong and inherent preference for utter privacy. Those who know me sometimes struggle with reconciling the quirky, outgoing (yes, loud) person who’s,[…]

New Website Underway

Because I have trouble doing anything by half measures (except housekeeping, unfortunately 🙄 ), now that I’m prepping to release so many books at once and finally have a cohesive, branded look – yay! – I decided a website makeover was in order.
