The Case for Romance in Middle-Grade and Young Adult

Question to anyone who wants to answer: When you read a mystery, science fiction, bestselling novel or any other fiction novel, whether you are an adult, a teen or a child, do you like some romance in the story? I ask this for a few reasons. First, when I asked for ideas to blog about for girls, my wonderful friend Amie, who counsels teens and families, said, “Girls want to […]

Voodoo Butterfly Release

Almost six years ago, while visiting New Orleans with my family, I dreamed about a woman who had the power to change evil people good. In that dream, I also envisioned a plague of monarch butterflies descending upon Saint Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. Millions of the orange and black winged creatures swirled in the air and covered the entire cathedral. The dream woke me and would not let me fall […]

Voodoo Butterfly Cover Reveal

I am over the moon about the cover for Voodoo Butterfly. So how does a cover get made? My publisher had me submit a form that listed various details about my book (like physical descriptions of the characters, setting, important objects, etc.). The form helped the cover artist hone in on the things most important to visually representing my story. These were the key elements I conveyed to the artist: Simplicity: I love […]

Help Me With Time Travel Books

Okay, so I recently read two great “time travel” books–Landline by Rainbow Rowell, which has a magic phone line to the past, and Time and Forever by Susan B. James, which has an actual ticket you buy to travel back in time and experience life in an earlier time. Neither book is like Marty McFly, where he starts to disappear if his parents don’t actually get together in the Back […]

Behind the Scenes

One of my bucket list items was crossed off last year when my daughter got married. I had dreamed of this day since she was born, even imaging her future husband and the ceremony. Blah, blah, blah. It wasn’t the ceremony I had imagined, it was better. And he wasn’t the groom I had imagined, he was better. And almost year later I still concur. Amy and Kevin were married […]

Book-Page Chandelier…..What?

Yes, that is right; you can make your very own Book-Page Chandelier like this one. It’s actually very simple and I will walk you through the 7 steps. This one cost me $1. That’s right ONE DOLLAR! What the What? Here’s how I did it. First – you will need a “working wreath”. These are commonly used for door wreaths, but turn it and it’s a chandler! You can purchase […]
