My world revolves around my husband (who is a major hottie), my Vizsla’s, 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.

Miss Mabel's School for Girls is my first novel. More to follow.

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)

I really wasn't sure what to think going into this book.

Turns out, I didn't need to worry. She spins a different tale (not totally unconnected) from her previous series that is action-packed, full of thought, intrigue, and mayhem. As before, she con

“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."
–Christopher Zenos
Autumn in Carthage”
