I don’t know about you, but the month of February has zoomed by. This was supposed to have been a month where I slowed down a bit and focused on self-care and reflection so that I can be energized enough to focus on the writing marathon that I have ahead of me in March.
Sadly, as in many things in life, the best-made plans of mice and men often go awry. John Steinbeck knew what he was talking about, that’s for sure. In any case, as a result, I missed two Tuesday postings. My apologies if you were wondering why a post didn’t pop up in your inbox on those days (each time, I’ve been a day late). Still, I’d rather write from the heart as opposed to relying on some sort of blog generator – or continue to focus on the toxic news cycle that seemingly won’t stop.
(Which reminds me: There is actually a website that focuses on positive news. It’s goodnewsnetwork.com. I don’t know anything else about it, except that I land on it from time to time, and every now and then, it is a bit of a refresher from mainstream media. It might be worth checking out.)
March Madness is definitely a thing (in basketball – see, I know my sports…), and it’s going to be a big one for me as a writer. I’ve got two major projects lined up – and they’re both due at the end of the month, of course. On top of that, we have friends visiting us from Europe, so guess who’s going to be the tour guide? 😉
But, that’s the challenge of being a writer. One way or another, you’re going to find a way to meet those deadlines, and the biggest miracle of all will be writing something that won’t make someone clutch pearls or make babies cry on sight. So, let me know: What projects are going to throw you into March Madness? I know you’re out there, biting your nails or anyÂ other nervousÂ habitÂ you’ve got. We may as well work it out together! Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us, and as usual, I’m
Sending Love and Light to all of you.

I write contemporary Romance that often centers around our most joyous occasions â€“ holidays â€“ and the stories tend to have a â€œclean and wholesomeâ€ feel. My books have multicultural 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 NA first-love romantic stories to contemporary romances with a dash of suspense and tastefully heated, sensual moments.
