What a year! I got to create characters that will impact my writing for decades to come. If there was a big win this year, it was that my character development has grown by leaps and bounds. My focus group, AKA my husband, family, and friends, have influenced my characters on the deepest levels. We sold a few thousand books in 2018 which is wonderful, but I’m hoping 2019 sees that number explode.

In June, during an 17 hour road trip, my husband and I workshopped a novel that has grown into my biggest project to date. My Mother Road was outlined while driving on the actual Mother Road. When we got home I wrote the first 10,000 in under 24 hours. I’m querying agents now, and hope to see the book published in 2019.

Thank you for being a part of this journey with me. I am so thankful for your support as I chase my dreams.
