Fusion Hotwash – Or Why Depression Sucks

By |2017-03-14T08:53:57-05:00February 25th, 2016|Life and Love|

Normally, after I release a book, I try to hash out what I did right, what I did wrong, so I can learn and be better about it. For Fusion, I really didn’t do much but run a few ads. It’s hard to sell the last book in the series […]

2015, The Year Everything Changed… Again

By |2017-03-13T11:23:50-05:00December 31st, 2015|Life and Love|

On December 31, 2014, I sat in my parents’ old house in Gulf Breeze, watching Double Life hit #1 on Amazon’s Best Selling Space Opera. I mulled on how much had changed with me internally. I’d pulled myself out of a deep depression, I’d rediscovered my love for writing. Hell, […]

Selling Houses and Dating Boys Part Deux

By |2017-03-07T16:07:17-06:00April 18th, 2015|Life and Love|

This week, I threw it back to a post on selling houses and dating boys. In it, I wrote about how I felt that “I don’t get perfect,” in either real estate transactions or in dating gentlemen callers.

At the time I wrote that post, I was actually seeing […]

Living the Dream

By |2017-03-07T15:57:04-06:00March 9th, 2015|Life and Love|

As I’ve been saying for almost a year now, I’m quitting my day job as a consultant and going full-time into writing. I will be living the dream.

Now, just as in Empath, Lauren begins to have second thoughts after making a brave, bold statement to face the Anghenfil, I’m faced […]

Selling Houses and Dating Boys

By |2017-03-06T11:16:18-06:00February 14th, 2015|Life and Love|

As I navigate the perils of real estate, I began to see the similarities between selling houses and dating boys (or girls). I put my Virginia house on the market and it sold 24 hours later. I got a full-price offer, they needed no help on closing costs. The best […]

Setting the Intention

By |2017-03-06T09:42:03-06:00January 28th, 2015|Life and Love|

In yoga, we talk a lot about a sense of just “being,” of just being present in the moment. Letting the thoughts and emotions rise up and fall like waves against the shore. And not having stories or expectations about the moment, but just observing. Setting a writing intention is […]

Who I was and Who I am

By |2017-03-07T15:48:28-06:00December 30th, 2014|Life and Love|

My parents are downsizing and selling the house I lived in from ages ~12-20 (although I was mostly at college for the last 3 years of it). So, Terry was all, “MEH YOU NEED TO CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSET!”

And I was all, “Gull Mah, just get rid of it, yo.”

On Babies and Boys

By |2017-03-07T15:45:24-06:00November 2nd, 2014|Life and Love|

At my age, all of my girlfriends have babies and boys. (That is, they’re all married and pregnant)

Five years ago, I thought at 28, I’d be married to my ex and preggo with my first kid. I was so sure that’s what I wanted, because it was what everyone else […]
