Greetings from Turkey, Jordan, and Israel

Long time no talk! Sorry to be away for so long, I've been out of the country visiting Turkey, Jordan, and Israel. I can't wait to share my stories with you about these amazing places, but first I just wanted to check in and wish you a very happy Thanksgiving week. Wherever you are, I hope that you have a wonderful week and safe travels. 

Travel blog posts to come soon!

Journey of a Fantasy Trilogy

As you know, I finished the third and final book in The Shapeshifter's Secret Series. I've been rewriting and editing like mad to get it ready for a release date in June. It's an exciting experience, but it's also incredibly nerve-racking. I've put my whole heart into this trilogy. I've spent years dreaming up this series and making it come to life. For me, it's a lot of pressure making sure everything wraps up in a way that I feel good about giving it to my readers.

Characters have to find resolution in whatever path they choose. Some will reach their full potential, while others will fall short because of their decisions. Each character has to choose where they stand, and there won't be any gray areas to hide in. Sadly, there is more death in this novel. 

However, with the sadness, comes the stand-up-cheering-smiling-ear-to-ear moments when characters realize who they are. There's a lot of growth and self-discovery. Some relationships end, some relationships start (eek, so excited for this). Characters will live, laugh, and loveand it's all part of the hero's journey.

I can't wait to share this last book with you. Thank you for coming on this crazy adventure with me. Let's party in June at the launch! 

Also, as pictured above, there will be plenty of sword fighting, because swords are awesome. Just thought I'd let you know.
