Why Not?

Since I released Faith Beats Fear, I’ve had a recurring request to ‘get it in XYZ Store.’ I always sigh and lament the self-publishing and distribution process. Yet, in the middle of my church’s morning prayer call, a thought came to me: Why not?  Naturally, I thought of several reasons excuses why it couldn’t/wouldn’t work, but, […]

Good Girl Meets Bad Guy…

I’m excited to introduce the next installment in The Village Series, You Only Live Once.  This new tale expands the Village universe beyond AGU’s campus and takes readers on a crazy journey of redemption and restoration. I want to have fun writing. Don’t get me wrong, the process is grueling. BUT with The Village Series, I feel like […]

The Fight Ain’t Fair

“It ain’t fair.” This has been a common refrain throughout my life. When I was a little child, fairly well-behaved, it seemed like life was just SO UNFAIR. And even now as an adult, I sometimes find myself muttering, “That ain’t fair.” In the past, these thoughts led to me positioning myself as a victim […]

Let’s Go Back to AGU

I’m excited to announce the release of the next book set in the crazy world of Aurbor Grove, Georgia! It’s been a while since we’ve visited the campus of AGU. All I can say right now is…I’m taking things up a notch ;). Book number 3 in The Village Series will have all the hallmarks […]

What “They” Don’t Tell You About College

Advice from a “first generation” college graduate I didn’t have any close family members to help guide me before or during my college experience, so much of what I expected was based on television (ala A Different World and Felicity). Outside of that, I had this often stated mantra in the back of my mind: […]

Like Something God Made

I can’t remember the last time I took a vacation, so my weeklong stay in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida off “Scenic 30A” was a much-needed break. Time away is always a restorative experience for me so I don’t know why I always fight it and convince myself I’m ‘too busy.’ Whether it’s a small trip to […]

Faith Beats Fear Freebie

Faith is a daily action item. It works when we’re intentional. To help me stay “on faith,” I surround myself with positive reinforcements. I’ve set up reminders and taken other steps that keep me motivated throughout the day. Wallpapers are a fun, easy way to keep faith-based inspiration in front of you EVERY DAY. Sign up […]

Do You Believe in the Impossible?

Faith Beats Fear brings together short stories and Scripture. When I began this project, I wanted to figure out a way to weave in very short, modernized “parables” that captured moments of faith alongside some of my favorite verses. There is something soothing to the soul when you read about someone (fictional or real-life) overcoming similar challenges. […]

What a Year

Last year I shared with ya’ll my “Yes List” and despite many challenges, distractions, I saw so much progress in 2016. This was indeed a year of transition. I quit my 9 to 5 job and took a leap of faith into publishing and consulting full-time. One action/decision led to an opportunity that opened the door to another. […]
