Hi friends! Lots of things are happening these days in my book/writing world, so I thought I’d give a little update. The Hideaway This continues to be the little book that could!

So, THE HIDEAWAY had a bit of a good week last week! Wednesday I learned that the book made it on to the Top 20 Most Sold list on Amazon, coming in at #17. This on its own was exciting enough. THEN, oh but then, on Thursday, I returned home from dropping my kids off at…Read More

Odds and Ends
It’s morning and the house is momentarily calm. Granted, everyone in the house is looking at a screen–the girls are sharing a Launchpad (but they’re SHARING it!); Matt is catching up on a show on the computer downstairs, earbuds in place; and I’m upstairs in my cozy bed. I just started a cute new book…Read More
Going to try something new…
I used to read a lot of blogs. I mean, A LOT. It was back when I worked full-time, and now that I think about it, it’s kind of funny to me that I had WAY more time to read blogs when I had a full-time job than when I lost my job and came…Read More
