I am not trying to set the world on fire. This is my kindling season. My intention is to keep the flame alight.

For the past three years, along with essays, blog posts and a few pieces of short fiction, I’ve been writing a YA contemporary novel that I’ve wanted to walk away from more times than I can count. More than anything, it’s habit that keeps me going. Get out of bed. Turn off the alarm. Make the coffee. Light the candle. Power up the laptop. Type.

Functioning Perfectionist. Library Enthusiast. Recovering Lawyer. Stay-at-Home Mom. Not so patiently writing my first novel from five to seven each morning.
