In the last five years, I’ve written five manuscripts…as well as lots of other things. If I’m not actively working on something, I get Restless Soul Syndrome. It’s a lot like Restless Leg Syndrome, but instead of legs, the creepy-crawly-pins-and-needles feeling is deep down in my gut.

Aside: I’ve got a hunch romantic comedies will be making a comeback. The world is… Continue reading Level Up: The Love Edition
Hey, buddies. It’s been a couple of months. What have I been up to? I’ve done three rounds of revisions on my Pitch Wars book and written almost 20,000 words of a new book. I’ve gone to Arizona a couple of times and spent a weekend in LA with my mom, sisters, and niece. I’ve… Continue reading Small Talk
I’ve been wanting to write this post for years, long before it became a fact, and now I can officially proclaim: I have a literary agent! I will never tire of typing/saying that. It’s especially sweet because of who my agent is. As of January 24, 2017, I am represented by Jess Dallow of Brower… Continue reading I’ve Got Stamina (and an AGENT)
