Making Time

Making time. Wouldn’t it be great if we could actually make time? A lot of writers struggle to make time to write. At the very least, we struggle to make the time to write consistently. My biggest writing obstacle is that I have a full time job that requires a lot of critical thinking and […]

My Words Matter

I’m a hope*writer. My words matter. It’s a great reminder, because sometimes even the best of us can feel like frauds. Imposter syndrome is real. This reminder, for me, is two-fold, because my goal is to publish Christian fiction. My words matter. But also… My words matter. The message I convey has to honor God […]

Supporting Christian Fiction Writers

If you’ve been following me long enough, you know I’ve been on a writing adventure, working on my very first novel.
