Creativity: Where Do We Go From Here?

We’re at the crossroads, You and I.

Like the back of my hand, I often pay You no mind; I take You for granted.

Unappreciated, underutilized, overlooked – it’s what You’ve come to expect from me.

But, I need You.

And clearly, You need me more than I’ll ever realize.


I’m just a vessel, a medium that You use to communicate with the unseeing, the nameless, the unsettled. Those who are just like me.

Thoughts unreflected, I’m too often affected by Your musings.

Your demands ravage my body, possess my thoughts – when You have something to say, everything else stops.

I live to serve You, knowing that, like me, You’re the servant of a higher master.


How now to heed Your call? What must I sacrifice now to appease You?

I long for harmonious Grace in Your presence, to finally feel at peace with Your ceaseless whispers in my soul.

Lead me, creative spirit, and I shall willingly follow.

I'm a writer who believes that everyone has the right to love and be loved, consent is not optional, and souls connect beyond the boundaries of race, gender, nationality, or language. Love is Love. It always has been, and it always will be. Because I do my best to live a faith-based, holistic lifestyle, aspects of this will often be reflected in my work. This is an integral part of who I am. My novels, short stories, and novellas have main characters that are strong-willed and purpose-driven, and there is always a happily-ever-after (HEA). The stories vary in heat-level, from sweet young adult first-love romantic stories to contemporary romance tales with a dash of suspense and tastefully sensual moments. I hope that you’ll join me on my journey, and get to know and love my characters and their stories as much as I do.
