True Me

When I was younger, there were lots I found to complain about, lots to dwell on, lots of reasons to dislike myself, my life and my circumstances.  None of it kept me down as much as I did.  People may have said things to me and about me through the years, but none of it mattered; subconsciously I believed their lies, even though consciously I didn’t show it.

Their words became tethers binding my hands, my feet, and my brain.  After so many years passing in my life, the rope holding those words together more than any other became my own.  It stems from fear; a fear of failure and a fear of success.  It cripples me from my true self.  Life has a way of injuring you, then providing you with the crutches to help you walk again.

I’ve had many crutches in my life.  They were alcohol, tattoos, sex, cuts, fighting, speeding and general recklessness.  People saw it as me being free instead of the cries for help I was screaming on the inside.  I was drowning, still am drowning, still lost in the storm and unsure of direction.

I was blessed with many talents and gifts; too many I think sometimes, but I am grateful for them just the same.  Because of them I have a way to save myself in healthier ways.  If there is nothing you know about me, know that I’m a writer.  I always have been and more than anything else in my life, I always will be.  I had periods in my life where I’ve put down my pen and paper, but I always went back.

I think there were even times in my life when I ran from it, like most things I’m good at.  Now though, the calling is to strong in my life.  I remember the day I finally accepted who I am.  I had just got off a plane from Atlanta to New York and while walking through the terminal; I heard an inner voice that said, “I’m a writer.”
I am a writer.  I was finishing my first novel; part of a series I’m working on and extremely excited about.  At the time of my awakening, I was working as a flight attendant.  I lived in Atlanta and flew out of New York.  Not living in my purpose, it got harder and harder to get to work.  The final parting of ways came when I got sick and was banned from flying for three months by my doctors.

I had to give up the ghost and decided it was time to listen to my inner voice, “I’m a writer.”  With help from loved ones, I was able and am able to live, doing what I love to do.  I am very grateful for my journey and what I’ve become.  My life is making turns for the better; everyday trying to loose that tether till I’m free.  Free from me to be the True Me.

Book Ideas

I have been trying to finish writing up the sequel to Ansheniu Rise and I run in to something on a regular basis that draws my attention away.  I have so many ideas on different story lines and book ideas, not to mention the ones I get from my dreams the night before that I have to write down every morning causing my brain to wander.

I’ve decided that today I will outline all those ideas for future projects in a notebook, so that way it’s out of my brain for a little while and I can concentrate on finishing the task at hand before my friends lynch me for taking to long in putting out Darkened Sunrise. :)

This will be my healthy break today, still writing, but a change from my current story line.  Maybe I’ll be able to bang out a poem or two that I can post at a later time.  I’m also thinking about starting a writing competition.  Something along the lines of I start off the first chapter and you take the next and we run with it.  The best chapters go into the final product and we make an e-book out of it and list it for distribution, one for each of my favorite categories like YA fantasy fiction and Paranormal Erotica.  Will get back to you with further details.  Have a blessed day everyone.

2.  Would you do like Mara and Olivia did and keep the identities of who they are and their people hidden from their daughters.

3.  Why do you think Cristos is the way he is towards women?

4.  Did Ma'Zelle do the right thing by holding on to Satchel's gifts from his parents from him for so long?  Why?

5.  If you were Amelia, how would you feel if you had been asked to walk away from the only family you knew to the unknown for an undetermined period of time?

6.  If you were Jade, how would you handle your awakening and new responsibilities?

8.  And so the adventure begins, are you ready for the ride?

Getting a Copy of Ansheniu Rise

I went to my website to get my ISBN-10 for Ansheniu Rise and I saw that my book has been taken down from the shelf.  After contacting my publisher, I was informed my books will be back up for sale mid next week after I approve the copies they are sending me.  I do apologize for the inconvenience.  Apparently there has been a lot of sales attempts, so they had to take it down. 

Hopefully this hasn't discouraged those of you that have tried to make a purchase from re-attempting to do so in the near future.  Ansheniu Rise is a terrific find and I know you will thoroughly enjoy reading it.  In the mean time, please check out my other blog at and peruse the reading options there.

I will be doing reviews of Fantasy Fiction books on this site and all other book reviews on  Please visit site for further details and books for review submission guidelines.

Loving The Ride

I have been enjoying the process of writing my stories so much, it can be overwhelming sometimes.  Each chapter I write, each book I complete, I have to remember that the audience isn't as far advanced as I am in the story or character development.  I wish everyone could be as up to date as me sometimes, lol, but then I'd have no story to tell.  So all in all, I realize it is a process and I am enjoying the ride.  I hope you continue to journey along with me through the Ansheniu Series and beyond.

Have a blessed day All
