I laugh way too loud. I am convinced that I will never have a good even tan. Gimme a book and I am in heaven. I have performed in from of 27,000 people and have had raccoons as pets. I like dancing Bachata with my husband, because--well, the man can move! I coach women on Confidence and Intimacy by day and write about dark and broken things by night.

I am the founder of the #HoldOn2Hope project where creatives unite to support suicide prevention.

My daughter is a light in my life and my husband is my anchor. My sister is my partner-in-crime and my mother was the one to give me wings.

I am grateful to be a part of this gorgeous reader/writer world. You all have rocked my world and I heart each and every one of you.

Now, let's get to reading!

The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider
“There's a word for it," she told me, "in French, for when you have a lingering impression of something having passed by. Sillage. I always think of it when a firework explodes and lights up the smoke from the ones before it."
"That's a terrible word," I teased. "It's like an excuse for holding onto the past."
"Well, I think it's beautiful. A word for remembering small moments destined to be lost.”

Two Breaths Too Late by Rochelle Maya Callen
"Two Breaths Too Late is a heart clenching, gut wrenching read.

It’s an emotional book about how life can beat you down. Make you lose hope and then not realize until ‘two breaths too late’ that you want to live. Ellie is forced to watch the destru..." Read more of this review »

“She’s here, in front of me. Just my luck. I obsessed about her all night, working out a plan to find her and take her soul. After the disappointment in my kill last night, I knew nothing would satisfy me until I had her.
Only her.”
Christine Fonseca

“When adults say, "Teenagers think they are invincible" with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don't know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

“But for the most part, magic tends to end in explosions, or tears, or with you flat on your back in the middle of nowhere, feeling like a tiny dwarf is mining for diamonds inside your head. Okay, so maybe that last bit was just me.”
Rachel Hawkins, Spell Bound

“It is better, I think, to grab at the stars than to sit flustered because you know you cannot reach them.”
R.A. Salvatore, Sojourn

“We cry in our own rooms, remembering a man who will never be here again.The house creaks. Maybe it feels the weight of our grief, maybe the floorboards are buckling because the burden is too heavy.”

Terah Edun Hi Rochelle,

Looks like we're both publishing our first books in November! It's been a heck of a journey for me & I'm excited to get the book out to the world.
