  • New Title: Dancing on the Straight Edge

    I asked friends on Facebook about the title. Originally I planned on going with Drug Virgin Hypocrite. Other titles were thrown around including:Straight EdgeDaughter of HypocrisySecrets of a Straight Edge GirlStrait Edge MasqueradeStraight Edge SanctimonyStraight Edge HypocriteI've decided on Dancing on the Straight Edge.

  • Drug Virgin Hypocrite

    *Please Note: Book Title has changed to Dancing on the Straight EdgeI am thrilled to reveal my book cover for Drug Virgin Hypocrite. I was going to wait until the spring to get the cover design started, but I was just too excited. I loved working with Molly at We got you Covered Book Design and highly recommend her if you are in the market for not only book covers, but so much more. I wanted a cover with vibrant colors and the electric feel of the story.

    Twists and Turns

    A New Direction for the Military Spouse Book   When I began working on the military spouse book I had a very clear picture of what it would look like. That was a modern version of Chicken Soup for the Military Wife’s Soul. My goal was 20-30 military spouses submitting a personal story, poem or even work of fiction approximately 3 pages in length or less.
