I wallow for a little bit, pout even more and then something happens. The story beckons to me and I am drawn in. I'm a binge writer so once I focus on something, I can hammer out a novel in less than a month. (Of course, I never know what my kids are eating for dinner that month, but whatever.)(less)

A Few MG and YA Debuts I Want to Read... NOW!

I love reading YA debut novels. Even before I became a member of the Fearless Fifteeners, I would stalk the new release lists for the new kids on the block. (So hard not to make a NKOTB reference about hanging tough and how they made it step by step, oh baby, because you got the right stuff.) Oh heck... here's video from my youth.Now, where was I... oh, right... 2018 is going to be a great year fo Read more of this blog post »

"Oh my gosh....

Where to start?

Positive points:
- The characters. They are heart-warming, sweet, sometime means but never vicious. Most of them warm up after a good debate.
- We jump straight into the story.
- The main character goes from mean girl to GO" Read more of this review »

Sarah J. Schmitt, It's a Wonderful Death

“no matter what the Grim Reaper says about not meaning to collect my soul, it doesn’t change the fact that I’m looking down at my lifeless body while my friends stare at each other. Hello? Call 911. Or maybe someone could start doing CPR. Idiots. “Come with me,” the Reaper insists, tugging on my arm. “There isn’t much time.” I shake him off and shoot my best withering glare in his direction. “I don’t think so. You saw what she did. You were coming for her, not me. She’s the one you should be hauling out of here.” And then he shrugs his shoulders. Is he kidding? He rips my soul from my body and the next minute acts like I’m asking to change the station on the car radio.”
