Don’t call it a resolution

I haven’t blogged in a while, so here goes!! I woke up this morning and decided to weigh myself. It was a huge wake-up call. I weigh more than I ever have in my life. At the same time, I looked at my TimeHop app and saw that five years ago, I was in the 130’s … Continue reading

Out of the shadows…

The tragic death of Robin Williams this week has opened many people’s eyes to the plight of those who suffer with depression.

28 days, 8 pounds, 7.5 inches

Don’t let the terrorists win

This is an editorial I wrote for The Anson Record in Wadesboro, N.C., where I am the editor. Thought I’d share it on my blog as well. I could write much more, since someone I adore (Joe McIntyre of New Kids on the Block) ran the marathon and had just crossed the finish line minutes … Continue reading

Pitch Madness madness! ;)

Well, it’s been a while since I wrote a blog so here goes. I finished my first YA novel, tentatively titled DEAD TALKER, last weekend, and promptly entered it into a contest called Pitch Madness one week later. Just found out this morning I made it into round two, which means at least three “slush … Continue reading
