Stardust (Part 1)

June 21, 2017

After last week’s darker story, I thought I’d go a little lighter. For that, you’ll just have to trust me because this tale starts off with some dark thoughts. But as the story goes, you will see that it is one girl’s story of triumph.

Let’s get started, shall we?

Stardust is a fantasy story told in 3 parts. Part 1 is available for 1 week only! Then, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new story will appear!

Enjoy!

Fall’s Confession (Part 1)

June 8, 2017

Wednesday caught me off guard again. Sorry. I just spend so many fun times in other worlds that the time system on this world just doesn’t work for me. I can literally sit down to write or plan out a cover and not notice several hours (or the whole day) go by.

Best job in the world!

The great news for you is that my first reader got this story back to me in time that I didn’t have to put up some sort of filler for today. However, cover design took me a bit longer than I contemplated, so I’m actually releasing this on Thursday rather than Wednesday (hint: in most time zones, it is already Thursday as I’m writing this- grin).

This story, well, I have to blame it on a co-worker. (yeah, you know who you are!) Or at least the title. She gave me the title and my brain went off running after the story.

Enjoy!

The Tiny Dipper

May 31, 2017

I have to admit that I was pretty amazed last week at the feedback I received on Broken Smiles. Thank you to everyone who shared it with their family and friends, with their social media outlets, or contacted me to let me know how much you enjoyed the story. Super thank you to those of you who did all of the above!

This week, I thought I might step it down for a moment to go from something scary to another kid’s story.  Especially since I’m hoping to have another intense story next week.

My dad and I use to spend a lot of time out walking with the dogs on summer nights. We’d stand in the driveway and he’d point out the constellations. When I go back “home,” I like to stand in the driveway with my kids and point the stars out to them. There are so many more stars to see when we are in Nevada compared to here in Idaho.

Another thing I remember vividly is all the time I spent out back while my mom barbecued. I can still remember the smell of her chicken cooking over the charcoal as she brushed on her special sauce. Okay, it wasn’t anything “special,” just butter, salt, pepper, and paprika, but it always made my mouth water. There was just something about the way she made it. When I was really young, I remember dancing around to the radio, loving it when they played Hotel California or Another One Bites the Dust (gee, that makes me feel old).

This story was born from those experiences.

The Tiny Dipper is a children’s story. Available for 1 week only! Then, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new story will appear.
