It has been awhile since I have posted a blog. Mostly because for the past 6 months I was completely obsessed with finishing my books and getting them published. In the spring of this year I published a 3 book series called Urban Bigfoot. The books are a story about a young housewife that falls in an old stone well while out for a run. The book series was just a trial run to get my ideas out there. It quickly turned into screenplay writing for Netflix and Amazon. The books themselves landed in Barnes & Noble which was such a blessing. I was very excited to see my first Children's Book Published in July. This was much more work than just writing a novel. It took many hours of creating artwork and learning how to use a drawing tablet for my PC. But I did it! So I moved forward into August and published a quirky little Spell Book for the Witches Night Out event here. I setup as a Vendor and along with Palm readings I offered my books. They almost sold out! I was so excited. I ran an Instagram contest choosing someone to feature in the book along with a few others. It was something else to mark off of the old bucket list. As I moved into the Fall season I started a new Urban Bigfoot for a Holiday Release. I also finished up my newest book The Honey Cabin. This book has been sent off to a major publisher in New York and will not be published until they actually approve it. Somewhere in between the the Spell Book and the new Urban Bigfoot I had an idea to write a book about life. I got to be here. A book about just loving life and enjoying each and every moment that we have. Then boom. Another 3 weeks ago titled My Messy Mind. This book was about anxiety and moving forward. It certainly has been a crazy 6 months. I have enjoyed every moment of it and am happy that you are here to share it with me.

Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
