Happy Sunday Everyone!!!
Now that school’s done, my four ½ year old daughter is craving my attention and my 2 ½ year son has decided he doesn’t need to nap anymore. What does this mean? No time to write!! Thankfully, I just finished up my work in progress “Stolen Dreams”. So, for the next two months I plan to take a vacation―probably a much needed vacation.
What the heck do I do now? LOL. It’s been a year and half since I started writing and I’ve never really stopped. Sure, I’ve tried to take little breaks here and there, but it’s never lasted. Now, with the kids around so much I find myself too tired anyway. Is it September yet???
My only answer is to read. I have a bunch of novels to catch up on and a few I want to get into. Right now I’m reading Death in the Family by Charaline Harris. I wasn’t super excited about this one because of all the negative reviews of it. I’m about halfway through and still undecided.
After that, I’m going to read my first sci-fi. Midnight’s Ghost by Sara Brookes. I’m walking into this novel blind since I have no idea what sci-fi books are even like. So, I’m looking forward it. I like being surprised by new stuff!
Beyond those two, I plan on reading Dakota Cassidy’s Accidental series, some Katie MacAlister novels and the next release in the Night Huntress world by Jeanine Frost. But then what? So, let’s hear it. What you’re reading, what’s good and what I’m missing?

The journey as a writer all began when I was a teen and wrote poetry, which still to this day I pull out to have a good laugh. Later on, I tried a couple of times to put a book together with no such luck. Couldn’t ever get past the first few chapters. But once I was exposed to the paranormal world, ideas came quickly. At first, it was a way to keep my brain alive since being a stay at home mom can be a little let’s say―numbing. It was an escape from screaming kids, dirty diapers and plain old mom duty. It started as a hobby, but as the stories progressed it became a passion. Now, I indulge at nap time, especially the juicy bits! Every mom needs a good thrill! So here in Kitchener, Ontario, I am a thirty one year old wife, mom, house cleaner, cook, teacher, play-doh extraordinaire, swing pusher, toddler chaser after – who loves the outdoors, curling up with the latest flick, and if I’m not plugging away at a new novel, I’ve got my nose buried deep in a good book. So there it is―my life!
