It’s been a little over two years since I started this blog, and with some of the changes I’ve been making recently to my social media activities, I thought this would be a good time to give my fans a little taste of who I am and what makes me tick as a writer. Learn About My Journey

This is a bit late, I know, but I only recently received the picture!
As I’ve mentioned on several accounts, my young adult novel, In the Light of the Eclipse, was inspired by five individuals who challenged me to write a novel. I usually see them every Christmas, so I was going to give them all a signed copy of my book in 2013, however, due to some family issues, our normal Christmas Eve party was canceled and I was unable to see them all. (My niece and nephew did get theirs, though). So this past Christmas, I was delighted to be able to finally give the other three young ladies their copies, and they were just as excited to start reading.
If you’ve been following me on my various social media platforms over the past year, you’re aware that I’ve been slowly building my new business, Phoenix Moirai, as well as attempting to build my fan base, generating as much interest in my writing and other artistic projects as a possibly can. This means, I’ve been spending a lot of time (which more often than not has taken a small bite out of my time — and energy — needed to finish my next novel) in finding ways to network, getting my name out there and building a solid reputation that will bring in new business while keeping my current clients happy. I will admit, it’s been hard to keep the motivation levels high sometimes, especially when I lose a client (for one reason or another), when my efforts bear absolutely no fruit whatsoever, or I watch my bank account trickle away. There’s an occasional job here and a possible connection there that have so far been able to sustain me just enough, but none of them, no matter how appreciative I am for them or what might happen with them in the future, have yet to scream SUCCESS!

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of sitting down with an incredible young girl and her father to learn more about their amazing story of faith and survival.
A few weeks ago, I was talking to someone I know and somehow the topic of one of his friends and his daughter came up. With what very little he talked about, I instantly felt connected to the story and knew that it was one that was just waiting to be told. So I contacted the guy and asked if he and his daughter would mind sitting down with me to discuss the possibility of making a film, or writing a novel about her story. Little did I know how extraordinary the story actually was. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More
