Once Broken received 2018 Best Women’s Fiction Award from N.N. Light’s Book Heaven!

2018 has been one tough year.  In fact, it’s the tail end of a few tough years.  At the end of 2016, a seemingly mild rear-end auto collision resulted in the most severe sciatica pain imaginable … which resulted in triple spinal fusion surgery in early 2017 … which resulted in nerve damage causing left leg neuropathy and foot drop.  2017 was a frustrating year of deceleration and intense rehabilitation.  I took on 2018 with a surge of hope and determination.  January was spent creating a vision board that depicted a full range of health, finance, career and writing goals.  With the help of this magnificent universe, I planned to tackle it all!  2018 would be MY year!  By February 14th, I was on a roll.  I had my daily rehab exercise plan in motion. I was following a

Happy New Year!

I am so excited to say that, my third novel, Twice Loved has finally been submitted to be formatted for publication!

2017 was a challenging year! I was in a car accident that led to back surgery, which resulted in nerve damage and 10 months of foot drop! My time spent with Jackie, Tony, Gina and company was the highlight of my year.

Thanks so much to the Once Broken readers who clamored for more! There were a lot of adventures for them to take. Test readers say this is my best book yet! I hope you’ll agree! I expect it to be released sometime next month. I’ll keep you posted, of course!

Twice Loved

So excited!

I just finished the third (and hopefully final) revision of Twice Loved! What a challenge it has been. Writing is hard enough. But the emotional and physical efforts I’m putting into nerve damage rehab (so that hopefully I WILL walk again without needing the aid of walker) added a whole new level of challenge. But today, I got there!!! I’m now printing several copies and sending it to test readers this weekend … for the second and hopefully, the last reading. Once Broken fans are in for a treat!!!
