I’m sad to say that my former publisher Loose Id is closing its doors on May 7, 2018. Loose Id gave my first book MORE a chance, and I will always be grateful for the opportunity they offered me to share my stories with readers. I learned a lot working with LI and their editors, and I’m very sorry to see another indie publisher go out of business. I wish every author with Loose Id the best as they work to find a new home for their books.

This past year certainly had its ups and downs. Some days it was nearly impossible for me to even glance at the latest world news or venture onto Facebook or Twitter and see the turmoil that so many people have been living through. More than once, I was saved by turning to the world of fiction–both reading and writing it. Going along for the ride with a story’s characters is one of life’s greatest treasures for me, and that was certainly never more true than in 2017.
But this past year was also an amazing journey for me–both personally and professionally. I’ve learned so much and grown in ways I was not expecting. I’ve simplified my life, regained confidence, and found a more productive way of living and working. I couldn’t be more excited to see where this new year takes me. There has been a lot of turmoil and change in the writing and publishing world, but thanks to the support of all of you, I’m more excited than ever to share new stories in 2018.
THANK YOU to all of you who’ve read my books this past year. I’m beyond grateful to those of you who took the time to send me a private note or write a review. It means the world to me to hear from you.
I hope you all have a wonderful new year filled with much love and laughter and peace-filled days.
