My Spring Writing Office

My Spring Writing Office

So, I know I’m a little bit late to the party on this whole “spring” deal, but up until this week, it hasn’t felt like spring here on the Nova Scotia coast. It’s been cold, and has kept me firmly inside the writing cave. But suddenly, as if out of nowhere–warmth! I’ve now been doing my writerly business at a table on our screened in deck, which extends to a birch stand on one side, and has a rockin’ view of the gardens on the other. It’s peaceful, with the only real noise the cacophony of birds, has visits from my little chipmunk friend I creatively named “Chippy,” and also, when the wind is right, it smells of the sea. It’s a beautiful place to work, and makes me far more productive and creative than sitting in my upstairs office (ie: childhood bedroom) where multiple photographs of Jensen Ackles are too distracting.

My current work in progress is another work for Smartypants Romance, which I am absolutely thrilled about, and I hope you will stick with me for this journey. I have my next two projects after this planned, and hopefully by next Spring, I’ll have all kinds of things available for you to read. *aura of mystery* *oooooh* Until then, my debut book, Dewey Belong Together (part of the Green Valley Library Series) is available exclusively on Amazon and enrolled in Kindle Unlimited. Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome Spring day. Unless you live down under. Then, have a awesome day where I hope you see no spiders.

2 Months!

2 Months!

Almost two months ago, my debut book dropped and you amazing readers/reviewers have made my life so much brighter and exciting. To do something special to mark the two month-iversary of Dewey Belong Together, I’m going to be holding giveaways on my Facebook and Instagram pages. I’ll have a different item up on each page, so if you follow both, you’ll double your chances of getting some cool Green Valley Library/Dewey swag. Have a great week! <3

Unboxing Day

Unboxing Day

When I was five years old, I wrote my first lengthy story, about my family’s “ginger-coloured” cat named Poco (named after a character on Mr. Dressup, a Canadian children’s show that was a staple of my childhood in the 80’s). I loved writing, and I was hooked. My folks bought me an electric typewriter one year for Christmas and I was off, writing “books.”

My life took me down several career paths, and I never quite imagined my stories would ever see the light of day, so many of them relegated to sit on hard drives. And then, about ten days ago, a ginormous box from Amazon arrived at my house and I finally got to hold in my hands the first book of mine to be published, Dewey Belong Together.

I wanted to share with you my joy with you, so here I am with that first book in my grasp, clutching it like it’s about to be torn from my hands, grinning like mad because it was real.

Good news to audiobook lovers! Grab your headphones and head to the retailer of your choice to hear Dewey Belong Together (except Audible–they are being slow, but I will let you know as soon as it is available there).
 
Narrated by Lee Samuels who has excellent comedic timing, and Marnye Young, who injects her heart into the performance, I was thrilled to hear Jonathan and Maxine come to life in this way and experience the story a bit differently. I hope you will enjoy it, too! Nab it at:
