I keep sitting around and asking myself the same question--"what am I going to do with this?". I feel like all the resources are here, but I'm wasting precious time and doing everything else. I feel like I'm betraying the one thing I feel like I was born to do. How does it work for other people, anyway? Writing cannot be rushed but I finally came close to finishing a book. Just like every other project, I began to hate it and started writing crap. It was crap. I want to…Continue

I sit here looking at the date of my last post. I wonder what is it that has kept me from posting for such a long time? I had every intention of posting, getting my blog started but somewhere along the way just like many other times "Life happened"! At the time of my last posting my greatest emotional challenge in life was dealing with the death of one of the greatest men in my life, my dad. Just two weeks after that last post my mamma passed away. Compounding my sorrow and spiraling me into…Continue

I am a writer of real books that took me years to write, that carry messages of caring about the human race, that program readers into self-empowerment, that I hope will help to change a suffering world. Recently I attended a seminar on book promotion that made me sick almost literally. One author recently put a book together--not wrote a book--with snips from other people, then had those people and others prepay to buy a copy in return for ad space on a page attached to the book, then…Continue

Which are you?
I just read that, when faced with something dire, a person will fight.
Or a person will fly.
Sometimes, we don't know which one we are until the climactic moment.
Allow me to illustrate.
My bedroom was across and down the hall from the bathroom.
And I wasn't an 'early-to-bedder'.
These two facts will become relevant . . .
I had been reading.
Something I did every night.
For a very long time.

Another excerpt from Wrecking Ball.
The Internet revolutionized my life, as it did for millions of other Americans. In particular, it gave me access to other lonely kids looking for the same things I was. Live chats became phone calls, then became impossible, but potent crushes. I was usually too shy to reach out and flustered by girls who expressed their appreciation. It’s remarkably easy to develop feelings for someone whose face you may…

When She Writes first emerged in 2009, I knew it was something special. I’d already been acquiring books at Seal Press for five years at that point, and I’d witnessed firsthand how women writers (both in print and online) thrive in communities and environments that support and honor women’s unique perspectives, stories, and truths, so I was thrilled by the spirit and energy propelling…Continue
