I have loved writing since I was a little one and have finally taken the steps to put my stories out into the world. I live in Utah with my partner, our four children and two over sized cats.

I enjoy a whole variety of things, including reading stories that keep me on the edge of my seat, having late night talks with my handsome fireman, playing with my children, having happy/crappy time at the dinner table, playing in the dirt in hopes to create a bountiful garden and sitting quietly on my back porch, sipping my coffee and watching the sun wake up the world.

- my mothers death
- having a newborn
- my dad had a stroke
- day to day life with family and a full-time job
- creating the scenery and characters for the entire series
- divorce

The story did not take me as long, because I spent a large amount of that last year editing and finding the nerve to actually put it out for the world to read.

I learned a lot by writing my first book and now that my second one is almost complete, I have become more familiar with the ins and outs of publishing. I also have learned to better manage my time when writing and now that my kids are older it has become significantly easier to find the time. Four years will hopefully be the longest I take to write a book :) The second one will come out about a year and half after I started. Baby steps :)(less)

At this time I'm going to stick with self-publishing, however if the moment arrives where I feel a traditional publisher can give me more I will go that route.

Having the courage to publish Theia's Moons was a task all in itself. It took me nearly a year to get up the nerve. I revised the book several times before I finally set it down and realized I was getting no where very fast. That was when I decided I needed to take the leap and move forward with publishing :) (less)

“She jolted to a halt when she saw what was waiting for her. They were breathtaking and entrancing. Their beauty overwhelming, and their light warm and inviting. Safety and peace settled over her, as she gazed around at the beauty before her. They were no more than a foot long with silky wings and a wonderful aura, with light beaming from their bodies. All possessing long, satin hair, with a diversity of color. Not one was identical and their divinity could be felt to the depths of Malkia’s soul.”
Niki Livingston, Eyes Wide Shut

“Release Others’ Expectations. If you focus on what others expect of you, you’ll continue to act on and attract more of what they desire for you. But when you can shift your inner thoughts to what you intend to create and attract into your life, you will no longer have to give mental energy to what others want for you....”
