I've been thinking, one of the major problems I see is a lot of people give up on achieving their dreams. I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and she was lamenting about not being able to do anything exciting in her life like my latest achievement of publishing a book. Now this person has a gift when it comes to art, which is something I could never do, but she'd set aside her brushes to attend to life and hadn't picked them up again.

Sometimes it is easier to give up than it is to push forward to achieve something that seems impossible. Believe me, I've been there and don't want to go there again. There have been times when I thought writing another word was the last thing I ever wanted to do, but I found out if you keep the thing you want the most in your sights and work toward doing something to get closer to your goal~ anything is possible.

It may take a while, it may seem impossible. Keep the faith in yourself smouldering at all times, light the fire whenever possible~just don't give up.  Believing in yourself can be tough. Life gets in the way only when you let it. I work between 12 to 14 hours a day on a regular basis, but I never gave up. Even with the odds that I'd never finish a book, I've got one published, three on the way, and a zillion more ideas for new ones that come to me every day.

I refuse to give up. I may not have much to give on some days. I may only be able to think about my goals. But I will never give up striving to achieve every last one of them, no matter how hard it may seem.

You will find a little bit of my determination in every one of my books. Come see what I have to offer through my website at and leave me a note on the contact page. I'd love to hear from you.

Take care until next time.

I've just come back from a wonderful mini vacation here in Washington called the River Rock Inn . The breathtaking landscape relaxed my soul as I relaxed on my personal deck. I felt a certain kinship nourished by the friendship and encouragement from the inn keepers refresh my need to write again. The conversations I had with them, and the new and exciting people I met at breakfast stirred new stories to come spilling forth into my already full basket of topics to choose from for my next book.  This place will be a hotspot for sure in one of my next books.....I just have to figure out which one.
One of my favorite things to do is to go someplace I've never been before. When I find that special place, I make plans to go as soon as possible. Bed and breakfasts are my favorite place to go. But it could be a restaurant, or a park, as long as it is someplace unusual, at least to my everyday goings on.

I plan on bringing you with me to visit these places, meet some interesting people, and maybe entice you to come see for yourself how special these places and people can be to you too.

In every one of my books, you will discover a new place or setting that isn't fictional, tied up into a story that begs to be told. I'll tell you about them here in my blog, so you can see if you can find them in my stories. Come find out where I might take you next....

New Adventures

My newest adventure has been the publication of my first book, In Desperate Search of Peace, now available through Amazon at
Although utterly elated that I have finally been able to bring my writing to the public eye, it has been a challenge, and a learning experience I will keep close to my heart. Come along with me in my growth as a writer, and help to challenge me even further. Leave me a note through my website to let me know what you think, or leave a review on Goodreads or Amazon, to share with your friends. I'd love to see you there.

This is only the first in many of the adventures I plan on bringing to you through my insights and experiences of this lifetime in written form. I hope to bring you more in the near future. Check back with me at to discover my latest publication.
