Fairy Tale Retellings

  Everything has already been done. But has it been done well? And can it be done differently?

In Past My Defenses, Vanessa had a real battle with allergies and […]

What Turns Your Pages?

  I’ve mentioned I’m an avid reader which has spilled over to writing, so you know I’m a kindred soul and you can tell me…what turns those pages for you? I’ve noticed that we’re drawn to books that we can relate to in some form–possibly they pull us in because in some way we can sympathize with the characters or […]
