Never in a million years did I think I'd write paranormal romance, but much like this whole writing journey for me, it's unpredictable.

It’d been six months since she came home. Yes, it was her home now. She realized this as soon as she saw the lights, life, veins, and soul of this city. She felt that Istanbul talked to her, replied her, felt it when she was feeling bad, and soothed her. It cheered her up and made her laugh and s... Read more of this blog post »

Alex took me out to the desert north of Phoenix. It was an odd choice, considering out here the heat could rise and make seventy degrees feel like a hundred, but he said that we couldn't go to an indoor shooting range because I wasn't eighteen.Again, my age brought up as a hindranc...

In the same way that some structures carry time on their shoulders, we too want to observe its traces. Every place, of course, has anchors that halt time as it passes by. In Europe, the huge cathedrals are mute and impotent witnesses of history. Likewise, the old sugar mills of... Read more of this blog post »
In Women’s Bible Study at my church we are going through ‘Discerning the Voice of God’ by Priscilla Shirer. Last Wednesday, we were going through the attributes and names of God.

Graphic design is a skill that requires a lot of practice to master, and making book covers isn’t as easy as some people might think. But as an indie author, I know most of us are on a budget, and that leads many authors to try their hand at creating their own ebook covers instead of hiring a pro...Read more of this blog post »
