Blog Talk Radio Interview: Step Into the Light

Sorry it’s been quiet here, there’s quite a bit going on behind the scenes, and I’ll share more in the coming days. It’s a busy time, but an exciting one!   A big part of being an author is also being in marketing. That’s not natural for most authors, we just want to write, and that’s true for me.

Valentine’s Day Memories

So, Valentine’s Day… Hallmark conspiracy or a great day to focus on love?
