Texas Writer’s Month

Texas Writer’s Month

Wait! What!? Texas Writer’s Month?? Did you know about this? I didn’t until about two months ago. May is Texas Writer’s Month. How many people authors and nonauthors alike know this? I have a feeling that number is a small one. I mean, how could you know we are...

National Poetry Month

Every April, I post about poetry because April is National Poetry Month. I love poetry!!! Poetry and lyrics were the first form of writing I started doing seriously as a teenager. I love the freedom of poetry. While, yes, there are “rules” in poetry, there aren’t...

The Shift

Did you see the picture that accompanied this blog? Take another look. Isn’t it beautiful! That is a painting that hangs in the center of one of my living room walls and it is aptly title “The Shift”. Now, let me tell you the story behind it. I have a beautiful artist...

Detour

If you follow any of my social media pages, you’ve seen recent posts about a change I have made. I’m going to use this month’s blog to tell you a little more about it. In the first part of January, I left my retail job to jump into a whole new career role. One that I...

Life of an Author

Please excuse the following nerd moment I’m about to have with you, but I’m constantly asked questions and seem to constantly amaze people with my answers and all the projects that are in process. So, I decided today I would try to write a little about that.

The Pick

As she trudged down the alley, Cenessa saw a small wooden box. It looked out of place among the cardboard boxes stacked beside the door that led into the back of her parent’s grocery store. The box was a little bigger than the size of her palm and looked to be made of a dark wood.

Leading the Way Home

*In continuing with the idea of practicing my short story writing, here is a new one for this week’s blog. This one has a little back story to it. There seems to be an underlying theme in my Artist Way class that consists of horses. Either fellow participants are good at capturing those creatures on paper or had a horse of some sort in their childhood. (Stick horses count!). As for me, the closest I come is my next novel, Burned on Sunday due out March 2019, is set in 1849 in a town in Colorado. Being that time period, horses were the most common way to get around. Anyway, enjoy!
