As 2016 ended I had hoped that 2017 would start off much better for my husband and myself. As it turns out, January had other plans for us. My husband went through and is still going through a very tough time medically speaking. That led to him having to take time off from work, making fiances a big concern. My health has been causing me some concern, especially with the new day job. I am holding up, but it is a constant worry if my body will keep that up. Writing time and promotion for my writing has had to take a backseat to other troubles. Worry about all of this has left me an anxious mess to tell the truth. Some days I am not even sure how I keep the smile on my face at work, how I manage to appear normal in the midst of a breakdown. I am very good at pretending I guess. But sometimes I don't want to pretend. I want to tell the truth. Not everything is okay. I am struggling. I am barely hanging on most of the time. But I am hanging on and I will continue to do so. I will fight for myself and for my husband. Life keeps trying to knock us down, throwing more and more at us, yet we are still standing. If we do get knocked down, we get back up. And we will continue to do so. Life is not always easy, tough times are always there, but as long as you push through the best way that you can you are still moving forward, moving towards better times. At least that is what I keep telling myself.
I am gearing up for the release of Love and Wisdom, Gods Behaving Badly Book 5, at the end of the month, so I am continuing to help you get to know my misbehaving gods. Let's take a look at Ares and Mania, an unlikely pair, but one damn steamy couple! Only .99 cents and free on Kindle Unlimited!
For those of you who don't know, my husband is an incredible musician. He plays guitar, bass, and make electronic music. Recently I have been having him teach me the basics of making some electronic music, something completely new to me. I am still not very good, but I have a couple short songs done as of right now. I'm learning and having a lot of fun doing it! You can check out my music on Soundcloud at:

Drop a comment and let us know what you think! Being creative in a new way is totally fun! I hope to learn more and become better at it!
Well today is my birthday, my 39th birthday, my last year in my 30s... Sigh... Must say that I am starting to feel a little old. Of course part of that could be that I am literally the oldest person at my day job, like seriously I could be the mother of half my coworkers. Of course having a hysterectomy last year doesn't help a lot either. But I do find myself talking about how I hurt more, or I can't do things that I used to. Sometimes it feels like my body is falling apart. I am working on getting back in shape after my surgery, but its slow going and I have to admit that I can't do all that I used to. Hard to admit to myself that I am getting older and my body is just not holding up as well as I would like. Then add to that all of the stress about health, bills,depression, marriage stuff, and all the other darn adult stuff.
Still, I am hopeful that this is going to be the year that my life gets back on track. My day job will provide extra money. I am working on my health this year. My husband and I are both working on our depression and anxiety issues. I am continuing to work on my art and writing. My first release of the year will be out at the end of the month, with another hopefully at the end of April. I am trying my hardest to get my next fantasy novel, the sequel to Quest for Redemption, out by late summer. Maybe this will the year that my writing career starts to really take off. A girl can hope right? I am going to make the last year of my 30s as positive as I possibly can.
Author, artist, jewelry maker and all around creative person. I write in many genres and have a lot of fun doing so. Please take a look around and enjoy!
