Life is life and it happens to us sometimes in the most inconvenient ways. In an ideal world, maybe we'd have forty hours a week to write as much as we want. But I'm a wife and I'm a mother and I'm a leader in my community and writing has to leave room for that. So if I carve out a day to write and then sit down and stare at a blank page for three hours, I don't chastise myself anymore. I know that story will come when it is supposed to. I'm not going to force it because when I do, the words are contrived and inauthentic. I wholeheartedly believe that it's a fallacy to make yourself write when you don't want to or don't know what to say. When I'm faced with that kind of block, I turn to reading. It refuels me and inspires those words.(less)

Perhaps that's a bit of psychosis (ha!) but I love getting lost in another world. I think I always have. In childhood, it's expected of us that we should make believe. In adulthood, we're supposed to duck our heads and clock in to our jobs. I've always bucked against the notion that grown ups can't have an imagination. I suppose writing has given me a more socially acceptable way to make believe. But in truth, if it weren't this, I'd find another way. (less)

In Egregious Lapse in Judgment, Christian Author Includes Sex in Her Novels

Dear Mom, if you’re reading this, I’m sorry. Sex has never been a comfortable topic for me. Partly because of my upbringing, and partly because of my faith, sex has been, for the majority of my life, somewhat of a taboo. Even after marriage, there were aspects of my sexuality that I could not bring […]

The Promised One: The Short Stories (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
2 chapters   —   updated Apr 03, 2017 09:16AM
Description: The woman he had forgotten. The love he could never forget. This is the story of Ferryl and Elizabeth. And the love that changed the world. The Promised One--The Prequel Short Stories. Where it all began.... this is the short story that started it all. Originally the prologue to my fantasy series, it ended up better serving as a short story—a prequel, if you will. For those of you who have asked, this is NOT a chapter in the novel, rather a standalone story. It's a story before the story. And I hope you enjoy it!
