This is the first book that does not include illustrations, but it is still very close to my heart.

'Normal' is a subject I've wanted to approach for a long time and I'm happy I had the chance to work on this. What is or isn't normal plagues many people. Neither 'fitting in' or 'standing out' are easy things to do.

"Be Normal" is a story about a girl named Zoe Cozy who is not quite mainstream. This tale takes on her irregular form. Her journey is emotional, humorous, and honest. For more visit:

Be Normal is a quick and easy read that just about any woman - preteen to adult - can enjoy because it's just so easy to relate to main character Zoe.

The formatting was a little off on my Kindle, there were letters that were cut off on the left side of my screen, but I could still make out the words. Bu

Thank you to author Brittany Nicole Sandford for sending me a free copy of Be Normal to peruse and enjoy at my leisure! It's been a treat.

Although it was a bit slow to start off, particularly for someone like myself who doesn't necessarily fit the target demographic, this quirky look at Growing Up was both engaging and unique. Be Normal is written in the voice of 13 and 3/4 year old Zoe Cozy as she chronicles her adventures at the Academy to Acclimate in Aptitude, a school for those who don't qu

My passion for art and my passion for writing existed as two separate side of myself until unexpectedly they came together for my first novel American Princess.

My goal is to entertain and share something different, unique, and hopefully special.
