Alrighty, folks. I don't know about you, but I've had a busy October! First and foremost, my debut novel, Something Special, released to the world! In case you missed it (I hope you didn't miss it), it's a contemporary romance novel about a broken girl trying to glue herself back together. After some reviewing and consulting, I've added a trigger warning on its page. The book does deal with some dark stuff in a few chapters, and I didn't want to hurt anyone who might have gone through somethi...

I grew up in a nice house, in a nice neighborhood, with nice people surrounding me. I didn't have to worry about the people walking up and down the street or whether or not I had to lock the windows on the first floor of my house. I grew up in safety.When I moved to Boston, I took the idea of safety with me. I walked alone at night with my headphones in, although my heart picked up speed whenever a man--or worse, group of men--came down the sidewalk in my direction. I once stayed out all nigh...

2018 has been a year of self discovery. That is to say: I think I know where I want my life to go, finally. And also: I have been exploring my past under the scope of mental health. So let's talk about my (past) mental health. Why not, right?Earlier this year, I had a conversation with someone about anxiety. It was a person who I wouldn't have imagined having anxiety, since they were so strong. While they were describing it, I realized: wow, that sounds kind of similar. I see it everywhere no...
