Write Your Story

I did an author meet and greet yesterday at Gales IGA in Hart, and I had a ball! I sold some books, but what was more fun was just talking about Lift with the people who came. They were genuinely interested in learning about the process and the inspiration, and I thoroughly enjoy talking about […]

FANS!!!

It’s true – Lift has fans! I am so excited! I had the opportunity to talk to a reader last week at the library who asked about book two and told me how much she loved Lift. And this past Saturday I received my first piece of fan art from another reader who loves my […]

Official Copies Have Arrived!

A big box of books arrived this afternoon – a big box of Lift copies! They look amazing! I can’t wait for them to find homes and book shelves. I admit that I need to reread it; we did extra editing after receiving the ARCs, and now the story is a bit different. I’m currently […]
