What If….

Life throws us curveballs all the time. It’s the “What If” thoughts that makes all the difference in the world…meaning, what do I do with this; where do I go from here? Be careful, as paths chosen from “What Ifs” determine our life fate.

It’s a powerful thing.

Another Book Cover Option.

I received the 2nd book cover today and can now test to see which cover will resonate best with which audiences. It is an amazing experience to see your own creation in your hands!

Book Sample is Here!

I was so excited when I arrived home last night, to find my first book sample. It has been recommended that I try different book covers in the testing phase and this sample was created from an adorable, and talented friend in Mexico. Take a look! And give me your honest thoughts!

Upcoming Book Launch.

I’m so excited, I can barely stand it.  After working on my first book since 2009, I am finally ready to publish, after months of back and forth editing with a professional editor.  The story first came to me in 2007, and I didn’t start writing it down until 2009, with some breaks in between.  And now, the time has finally come.  My first book launch party will be with family and friends, to get more feedback before I distribute it more broadly.

I can finally sit back and say, “I did it!”

Stay tuned for an Amazon launch next!  And now the real hard part starts….promoting it ongoingly. 🙂

The Reason Behind…

In August 2007, I saw breaking news about the I-35W Mississippi River bridge collapse in Minnesota.  A news crew was interviewing a man who had just lost his pregnant wife, while she was driving over the bridge.  I remember thinking about what I would do if that happened to me, and how could one move forward from such a traumatic event in their life.

That story became a ‘what if’ story for me, which turned into my first fiction novel, The Other Side of Goodbye.  Since 2007, I have been working on it, and now, it will finally be released within a few weeks.  It has been a sorrow, yet joyful journey, and I dedicate it to all those who have suffered such tragedies.  It’s odd how fiction fancies life, but I wrote it to inspire people to think about hope, survival, and moving forward when something so traumatic happens.

During this Christmas season after hearing about my book, a friend sent me a link to Madonna Badger’s Vogue story in Connecticut.  I finally read it yesterday and wept.  My heart goes out to her and I am so proud of her for having the courage to move on with her life, after so much pain.  She is an inspiration to us all.


Quite a few years ago, I had an idea for a novel based upon a tragic event that occurred on the news.  It got me thinking about what if such a tragedy happened to me.  Those thoughts turned into a ‘life lesson’ book about survival in a world gone wrong.  Could you pick up the pieces in your life if you lost everything?  My first novel will be one example of someone who had to make her way through life when everything fell apart.
