Paige has been a rabid reader for as long as she can remember. She didn't acquire her two new loves - writing and business - until much later in life. Paige always dreamed of writing Young Adult Fantasy novels (for ages 9 and up).

However it took becoming a victim of corporate downsizing to give her the nudge she needed to go out on her own. Paige took that negative event and turned it into one of the best things that had ever happened to her.

Working from home and owning her own business has been her reality for over 10 years and she has spent the last five years planning and researching writing about her two loves - business and fantasy.

Paige is living her dream of working from home and writing full time. With her step-by-step guides to

With the holiday season upon us, I'd like to send out a special wish for you:

May your family be safe, your feet be warm, your stomach full, and your heart filled with joy!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Leyla's Locket: Book One Of The Sera Chronicles (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 06, 2009 11:37AM
Description: Seraphinus (Sera) Ulric dreads the latest in a series of moves forced on her by her father's company. Their next stop is San Kristinese, a small town in the desert area of West Texas. Underneath the sleepy exterior lurks a hidden world where magic is real and things are not always what they seem. When Sera's family moves in next to Cressida Hammund, events are set in motion that will change their lives forever. Within days of her arrival, Sera gets on the wrong side of a bully, receives an unexpected birthday present, and makes several new surprising friends. Together they must unlock the secrets of an ancient necklace in a race against time to save magic ... and each other. Sera must deal with the hope of finally having a permanent home while being drawn into a web of magic, danger, legends, friendship, secrets, and conflict that will draw on every ounce of her courage and wits to survive.

“Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese This easy meal combines the flavors of buffalo wings and mac and cheese.  To cut down on prep/cooking time, use a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken! 1 Cup milk 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk ¼ Tsp garlic powder ½ Cup buffalo hot sauce (Frank’s Red Hot is a good bet) 3 Cups shredded cheese (just cheddar or a mix if you’d like) 1 lb pre-cooked chicken, shredded ½ lb uncooked pasta (such as elbow macaroni) Chopped onion/celery/carrots, crumbled blue cheese (optional) Mix milk, evaporated milk, garlic powder, and hot sauce in slow cooker until combined.  Add salt & pepper (to taste).  Stir in cheese, chicken, and uncooked pasta. Cook on low for approximately 1 hour, stir, then continue cooking an additional 30-60 minutes, or until pasta is tender. Garnish with chopped vegetables and/or blue cheese (if desired).  Enjoy!”

~(PierceTheVeil)~ Thanks for being my friend and I wanted to saw that you're an amazing author and writer. I love to write too, it's pretty much my entire life.
It's nice to see another writer who actually admires stephenie meyer's work. I fully admit to adoring her books, whether they're simple, silly, or whatever else people have said. There's nothing like a good fantasy romance in my opinion. Which is why I'm trying to write one. (notice I said trying) =)

message 34: by Paige

Paige Jayce,

Oh wow, that's a toughie! I think I'd have to go with "The Hobbit". As much as I love the continuing epics of both authors, the hobbit was the first book I read from either author and it's the one that stays with me. How about you? Which would you pick?

Paige :D

Ah Rita, you have both my sympathies and my congratulations. I didn't think so at the time but "downsizing" was the best thing that ever happened to me! :) If you do get to the point where you'd like to work from home and maybe need a little guidance (or just support) - I'd be more than happy to help! :D

Cheryl Hi Paige:

Thank you so much for considering to add your vote for my debut romance Lancelot's Lady. It's been an exciting contest so far, and I'm really working hard at adding new chapters and editing them before the judges start reading (November).

I'd love to hear what you think!

Please consider checking out Lancelot's Lady right away. I now have 32 short chapters up. If you enjoy it, simply click on the blue thumbs up circle, and voila! I'll get a message saying you voted. Right now I'm in jeopardy of losing my lead as #1 Most Popular.

You'll hopefully get a great read and of course my undying gratitude. :-)

And don't worry, signing up on is fast, easy and you won't get any spam.

Thank you again for the "maybe". If you've already voted thumbs up, THANK YOU!!! :-)
