To say that my life has been hectic and unpredictable over the last several years would be the understatement of the century! We've grown our family, I stopped working, we've lost a child, added another child, moved several times, I've started and stopped a business.... It's been quite the whirlwind!
For those of you that are new to my name, I began releasing my work in early 2013. Shortly afterward, I lost a child and chose to withdraw from the author world for some much needed mental health space. Right about the time I decided to dive back in, I discovered I was pregnant again. So, I once again decided my focus needed to be on my family alone.
Now, here I am, about 4 1/2 years after I originally began trying to chase this author dream, we are done building a family, and my kids are about to be in school for part of the day. Which means I am finally at a point where I can do this!!
I am very excited to get back into the author realm and, once again, publish my works! To be honest, I've wanted to do this for over a year now. However, the thought of self-publishing terrified me! I've even been sitting on a brand new novel for a long time now because I didn't want to release it on my own.
When I first began the journey of publishing, I was with a great publishing company who has been uber supportive of knowing why I needed to step away and focus on my family.
I am delighted to announce that same publishing company, Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing, still has my heart and I am, once again, able to say I am a CHBB author!
Full release details are still being worked out, but beginning in October, my books will start to be re-released, and a new book is on its way as well! I also have a long list of new ideas/stories/worlds to work on to keep the books coming!
I am grateful beyond words to have been able to step back and focus my attention towards my family when I needed to most. It wasn't the easiest decision to make, but I know I made the right choice in doing so. I am equally ecstatic to be in a new season of life that allows me to put my heart back into my books and pump out words for my readers! Thank you for all of those who have stood by me throughout the last several, crazy years. Welcome to any new followers as well!

Much love! <3
