It’s been literally forever since I updated this blog! It seems like I fell off the face of the earth and in some ways I suppose I did. Over the past few years my life has gone through major changes some really good and some really not so good. I fell in love with the love of my life, got engaged, moved to Australia, got broken up with, lost love and moved back to America. Out of that tragedy I did inherit an Australian accent that doesn’t want to leave me now, a deep love and appreciation for all things Australian and a new home in this not so big world. During that whole time I got really involved in helping my then love promote his music and writing (yes, he’s an author too) and somewhere along the way forgot how about my own writing.
I have always had a knack for helping others achieve their dreams. At times I thought I should become a Life Coach because it’s what I seem to do really well at and I love to see people’s dreams come true. The problem with this is that I give 100 bajillion% of myself to those I love and I end up forgetting to pursue my own dreams in the process. I still was doing writing while I was enjoying the perks of being deeply in love with my best friend. I just wasn’t as sure about where it was headed as I once was or am now at this current point in time. I was also pursuing a Master degrees in Education. I thought teaching High School English could be a great way to pursue my love for reading and writing and make money while I write my novels. I’m still working on finishing that up as well, so we’ll see where that goes.
Needless to say it’s been a long journey and one that has definitely left me with more questions than answers. It’s amazing how your life can become so certain one minute and the next become so unknown. There are days I feel like I’m living someone else’s life. My writing has become a reflection of the challenges I have been facing lately and attempts to answer the many questions I have found myself lost in.
On a happier note though, I dived back into writing with a furious passion. I originally began writing a novel that I may or may not finish but at the time it seemed like a good idea. Oh, the wonderful secret vault of good ideas and intentions. haha Then I was inspired to write the novel I am currently writing called, “Exist.” I am super excited about it and it definitely is a story I am crazy about. The more I develop the characters and story the more I fall in love with it all more. Now you might ask, like so many do, will this book be published or will it remain in the secret vault of novels and ideas? This book will indeed be published!! YAY! A very good friend (Abigail Black) of mine, and author, and I started up our own publishing company, Awakened Publishing.
