Where The Fig Tree Grows

My grandpa passed away while I was in college. I still vividly remember my dad’s shaky voice when he called to tell me, unable to get the sentence out. It’s the first time I’d ever heard him cry. I’d just visited my grandpa the week or so before and it was one of, if not…

New City, Who Dis?

You know that feeling when you walk into a room and forget what you went in for so you just stand there wondering if you’re experiencing early onset dementia or if you’re just having an off day? That’s what almost every minute of the past 2 weeks has felt like. Well, to be fair, week…

The Quiet Ones – Here We Go!

It’s that time again that I start begging strangers to appreciate my work! The Quiet Ones started with just a flicker of one “scene” in my mind back in July 2017 and since then, has grown into my second novel that I LOVED writing.  It’s very different from We All Fall Down, which makes me…

What Happens Now?

I have no idea. I never really had a plan to be perfectly honest.  My husband and I had a discussion about what my expectations would be before I even started and I promised myself not to let my hopes get too high.  I am extremely sensitive so it’s VERY easy for me to get…
