My world revolves around my husband (who is a major hottie), my precious kids, my Vizsla’s who act like children, and the mountains.

I wear hiking boots instead of heels when I need to feel powerful, and on a bad day, I love a weightlifting workout. Actually, I love it on a good day.

I don’t eat bread because my thyroid doesn’t like it, although there are days I miss it. Especially ciabatta. Sweet potatoes are kind of my thing. Cookies too.

I write because I never stopped.

Author of The Network Series, The Dragonmaster Trilogy, and The Health and Happiness Society.

Sorry this answer came so late, Daisha!

I would say this: write. Write, write, write, write. When your fingers start to cramp and you have nail stubs left, then you can take a break. ;) Honestly, I'd just write whatever story is in your heart and head. Don't worry about industry trends or what everyone else is doing. Just get at it with whatever words you've got.

Then read. Read, read, read, read. You'll never be a successful author if you don't read! (IMO, anyway).

I hope this helps!(less)

A Compelling, Unputdownable Second Book

Rebel Angels by Libba Bray









This is the second book in the Gemma Doyle Trilogy. It comes off a really strong first book.





I really liked this book because the relationship between the characters has deepened.





I understood Gemma even better and, somehow, I loved her even more after reading this installment.





Rebel Angels presents a deepening plot and issue with problems that came up. I found that

“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”
Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967

“It is a great thing to start life with a small number of really good books which are your very own.”
Arthur Conan Doyle

“The vicious demand for happiness, regardless of circumstance, is not what one expects from one's own. Life is hard enough. Requiring a loved one to always be happy-happy-joy in the face of that strain, that cruelty, is not love. It is unforgivable narcissism." She smiled sourly. "The greastest gift you could give someone is space to be sad. Or tired. The failure to understand that simple fact may be why your generation doesn't seem able to form lasting bonds. You all seem to be in it for what the other person can give you, here and now—resources, time, transient euphoria. Not for what you can be together. Over the decades."

Autumn in Carthage”
