Minor Characters

During my publishing journey, I discovered a divide between readers who like minor characters to have a more active role in the plot and those who don’t. Many times editors advised to decrease the page space given to said characters in favour of the…

Feel What You Need To Feel

It’s interesting all the things we do to run away from our feelings: shop, eat, gossip, binge watch, clean…avoid, avoid, avoid. I know this because I do it. The surge of energy that comes from emotions we believe we can’t handle is too much…

Two more sleeps and my work is out in the world ~ what a lovely thought. Pre-order on Amazon and Kobo. Hope you love reading it as much as I loved writing it. Here’s a short “what’s it about?”
