A lot has happened since I wrote my last blog post! I’ve been working on Book Four of my Dream Waters Series, spreading the word — both online and in person — about Benevolent, and working on some new projects that I’m pretty excited about. So, consider this my catch up post. Here’s what I’ve been up to…
I had the amazing opportunity to go to Miami, Florida last November. My book was featured in the Readers’ Favorite booth at the Miami Book Fair. I was awarded the bronze medal for fantasy fiction at the Readers’ Favorite International Book Award ceremony, and I got to meet award-winning authors from around the globe!
In February, I did a presentation at the Newark Public Library about my latest novel, Benevolent.
In March, I sat down to chat about Benevolent with Fitz from 93.3FM at Roc Vox Recording & Production Studio in Pittsford, NY. I was the first guest on his “Positive Blatherings with Fitz” podcast to come back for a second interview. (We talked about my Dream Waters series and my journey as an author on Episode 13 of the podcast.)
I also did a book signing at Wegmans in Newark, NY in March to celebrate Benevolent’s release.
In May, I had lunch with a local book club, and had a heartfelt discussion about Benevolent and coping with the loss of a loved one. There is no better compliment that I could receive than to hear that my story brought some comfort to those who have suffered a loss.
I also spent an evening in May talking about Benevolent with a wonderful group of people at the Clifton Springs Library. The smaller group allowed for a more intimate discussion of the book and my reasons for writing it and donating all of the net proceeds to Random Acts.
So far, it’s been an amazing year for this author. I can’t wait to see what the months ahead have in store for me!
I had the pleasure of chatting with Fitz from 93.3 FM this week at his ROC Vox Recording & Production Studio in Pittsford, New York.
He saw my books on display at Wegmans in Perinton, NY and reached out to me on Twitter, inviting me to record an interview for his “Positive Blatherings with Fitz” Podcast.

Yesterday was a fabulous day for this author. I gave a presentation at the library in Sodus, NY. Met some lovely fellow bookworms, and was touched to see some familiar faces in the crowd, who made the trip to listen to me spreak.
My book blog tour stop also posted my latest interview, where I shared a few random facts—including one about my character descriptions that I wasn’t aware of until I was asked the question.
I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Danielle —one of my absolute favorite book bloggers —on her blog, Books, Vertigo & Tea. I first connected with Danielle early on in my writing career, and I have thoroughly enjoyed every interaction with her.
I was touched that Danielle took the time to come up with a personalized list of questions, specific to me and my books.
Check out our conversation and take a peek at her blog. I’ve added quite a few books to my want-to-read list based on her book reviews.
Yesterday’s stop on my book blog tour was hosted by Fabulous & Brunette.
Check it out to read one of my favorite excerpts from DREAM WATERS (Dream Waters #1) —it’s the reader’s first glimpse of Benjamin, one of my darker characters, who plays a major role in later books —and read my interview to find out what I’ve lied about, how I came up with my book titles & the actors I’d choose to play my characters on the big screen!
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks in the life of this writer. So, today I’m catching up on posting the last few stops on my book blog tour. Yesterday’s stop was hosted by Two Ends of the Pen.
