I Can’t Come To The Phone Right Now

Technology is a beautiful thing when it works properly. Case in point, my phone decided to lock itself at 4:15 am this morning. Never mind the fact that my phone had been sitting untouched on the charger for several hours. I didn’t notice the issue until I woke up today. I tried powering down the […]

I Need A Release

“How do you find the time to write all of these books?” This is one of the most frequently asked questions I get about my writing. I am currently promoting my latest novel, No Cream In The Middle. Shame on you if you don’t have it already. You can get your copy HERE. Ok, back […]

You Gotta Let It Stew A Bit

A really good soup has to simmer a while. You can have all the right ingredients, but the soup is not made in 20 minutes. The flavors need ample time to marinate. This may take a couple of hours, half a day and in some cases even overnight. So, why am I making you hungry […]

Don’t Be Just Another Book On The Shelf

I am currently reading through my second novel, No Cream In The Middle. Although I am extremely excited to share this book with everyone, I am nervous too. July 7th is the official release date (shameless plug). However, I still have some things to check off my list. You may be wondering why I am […]

The Truth About Good Character

We have heard it all before. “To whom much is given, much is required”. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”. “A strong work ethic builds good character”. I have never heard that last one verbatim. Nonetheless, you get the point. I am naturally a hard working person. In fact, I can be dedicated to […]

The Scar Speaks Volumes

Last week I had a great conversation with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. We caught up about everything from work, to personal life and business endeavors we are working on. This friend is one of those people who is great to surround yourself with. Great energy attracts more great energy. Some of […]

The Last Time I Saw You

I had lunch yesterday with some great friends I haven’t seen in a while. They were both doing well and looked happy. I always enjoy seeing great people being prosperous, because I feel like they deserve it that much more. As we caught up on each other’s lives and work, the topic came up about […]

The First Jump Is The Hardest (Go!)

Today marks a very pivotal turn in my life. I started a new job at a new company one year ago today. Oh and it was a completely new industry for me too. The specifics aren’t necessarily important here. However, I turned down an opportunity for advancement in exchange for following my passion. Was I […]

Who Pooped On Your Good Morning?

How much does it cost to say, “Good morning”? What pain does it cause to ask someone, “How is your day”? One of my biggest pet peeves is people who don’t speak. I dislike it so much that I will shame people into speaking. Yep, I said it. I do it all the time. Even […]

When Your Roses Smell Like….

Yesterday I was not in the best of moods. Yes, I admit it. Most people think I am always a happy person. This is true. However, I am human and I have my moments. Many of you may remember the OutKast song “Roses“. The chorus says, “I know you like to think your sh!t don’t […]
