Quarter 1 Goals Results & Quarter 2 Goals

Hiiiii! Okay, so it's time to reveal the results of my Quarter 1 Goals, and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed with everything that I accomplished this quarter.

Quarter 1 Goals

Hi! The year 2018 is FINALLY upon us! Aaaah! And I couldn't be more excited, because IT'S PUBLICATION YEAR!! *does happy dance* But on a serious note, I decided that I am going to start this whole monthly goal thing because I've got a lot to do this year and a short attention span to accomplish it all. Work has been hectic (I'm a teacher...when is it not? lol), but I am determined (with a capital D) to live as fulfilling a year as possible, given everything that has to get done this year. With that being said, I've fashioned a list of goals that will not only help me get some serious work done, but also leave room for me to work some fun into my schedule.

And soon, she finds herself falling for him: the one person in her life who's off-limits. (more…)

CCR Day 2: I’m a Weirdo Sometimes

Hi! With only two days left on the countdown until I reveal the cover of my upcoming YA contemporary novel, Wrong in All the Right Ways, I'm starting to get super giddy. I don't know, I'm just starting to act really strange...or strange-er than normal, anyway. We're all kind of weird, and while most people try to conceal their oddities, I'm very open to sharing them, and that's what this post is about: My Weirdness. So let's begin. (more…)
