Welcome readers, friends, and family, and thank you for taking the time to stop by. I graduated from East Carolina University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in business. After years of keeping the majority of my short stories and poetry private, I decided it was time to pursue my dream of becoming an author. My first romantic thriller novel, Shadows of Deception, was published in December 2014. When I’m not writing, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends by the bonfire or out on the beach. I’m a proud wife and mother to a very spirited toddler, residing in Eastern North Carolina.
For now, the focus of my blog will be my books and short stories, the writing process, news on upcoming book releases, and my life in general. Occasionally, I’ll share my own poems and short stories too. I will post excerpts in hopes of sparking a good book discussion, and I encourage readers to speak openly about their thoughts. Eventually, I may start doing book reviews for other authors, but I’m currently busy writing and promoting… and running around after a toddler. Again, thanks for your support!!
Just A Few Of My Favorite Quotes:
“Come back now to your sober senses; recall your true self; awake from slumber, and recognize that they were only dreams that troubled you; and as you looked on them, so look now on what meets your waking eyes.”
“Are you distracted by your outward cares? Then allow yourself a space of quiet, wherein you can add to your knowledge of the Good and learn to curb your restlessness.”
-Marcus Aurelius: Meditations
