THIS BOOK! (insert dramatic sighs, foot-stomps and evil/happy “reader’s grin”) I absolutely loved this book! Now I’ll admit, I am the easiest sucker for nearly any good romance book (as much as I hate to admit it, the cheesier the better, although IContinue reading “Book Review #2. “Maybe Someday” by Colleen Hoover”
Short post here (I know, it’s summer break and I promised to post more often, but between writing my 3-5 book series (that I shouldn’t even say that I’m writing), writing a new book, reading a TON and even nearly beginning to startContinue reading “My Colleen Hoover Obsession”
If you go online and type in “Morquio A Syndrome” onto the search bar (which I don’t recommend doing, the first things that pop up will be a few vague and hard-to-read definitions of the disorder, maybe a few pictures of people withContinue reading “The other book that has a character with my disability”

There are two parts in my novel “Taylor’s Bond” where you get to see part of what a typical day of high school looks like for Samantha Reens. One, three days after the semi-finals basketball game in which the captain walks through those hallways with her head high up on her shoulders, and another, whichContinue reading “Two days in the Life of Samantha Reens; one before her surgery, and one after.”
