Clean Romcom Books – Discovering a Fabulous, Growing Genre

I may write YA fantasy, but I love to read many genres. I love sci-fi, urban fantasy, women’s fiction, self-help, and more.

Recently, as I researched Amazon categories and keywords, I discovered many authors are marketing their books as romcoms. Do you miss the good ol’ days of 2000s era romcom (romantic comedy) movies? I sure do. Maybe these clean romcom books could be a great alternative! I’m pretty picky about the ..read more

Wow! I can’t believe July is almost over! The summer is flying by, and I’m not sure how I feel about it.  This month, my family and I enjoyed a few days at Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks.

How I got started

I’ve been asked many times how long I’ve been working on This Dreamer. The answer is a bit embarrassing. Voice memos containing ideas that helped form this book date back to 2011.

I wrote the first 50,000 words of the first draft during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November of 2016. (Tak ..read more
