Life, Change, and Writing

Life, Change, and Writing

In the midst of this pandemic so many lives have been turned upside down. People have been thrust into new ways of living, existing, coping. I haven't. My life hasn't changed much because being home, working from home, homeschooling was my life and to a point, still...

I Suck At Endings

I Suck At Endings

And coming from a romance author, that's kinda...well, not a good thing, is it? My story endings tend to be more Happy For Now rather than Happily Ever After. I've tried writing HEA's but they don't feel genuine to me. That, too, coming from a romance author isn't a...

I’m Still A Race Fan…

... Though you'd probably never know because I haven't talked about it in, well, all of last season and my driver won it all. He's the current Nascar champion. I didn't even watch most of the Nascar races last season. Why not? Why did I end up taking a nap during most...
