By the end of the night, I was either going to defeat Henry, or die trying… ​​​An ancient curse on the Owens women puts Lucy in a race against time to claim her birthright and defeat her Big Bad. ​​​Lucy knew that she had a lot to learn before she could…

    June Goals and Quarantine Woes

    Whenever I feel like I am losing control or have too many unpredictables in my life, my favorite thing is to make plans. Often they’re plans for the future that I have hardly any control over, but it’s nice to dream about where I could be heading. I break down these dreams into more realistic steps that I have control over, then organize them into years and months and weeks, so I have the steps, should I choose to follow them. Because I love me some accountability, here are my June Goals: Finish a draft of Legacy, the third book in my Owens Chronicles trilogy Write a short Romance story…

    First Week as a Published Author

    Shards of Glass has been out for a week! I couldn’t be more touched and amazed by all of the wonderful comments and support I have been receiving. I was terrified to put the book out there because only my mom had read it before I decided to go on this publishing journey. Now I have sold way more than the 5 copies I was expecting, and people are actually reading it. That was the part that scared me the most, because I knew I had family who would get my first book to support me, but I wanted them to like it. I wanted people I didn’t know to…
