To Be Your Girl – Rae Kennedy [Review]

I don't automatically pick up romance books, not for any particular reason; I think I just hadn't found anything that hooked me ever since I read the Goddess series by P.C. Cast, which was over a decade ago. But I adore Rae Kennedy, so naturally I wanted to read a couple of her books. This… Continue reading To Be Your Girl – Rae Kennedy [Review]

My Current WIP Playlist

I'm pleased to know that I'm not alone in utilizing music when it comes to the writing process. It makes sense, doesn't it? Music is one of the most powerful forms of creativity and expression.

Leave Your Toxic Relationship Now

Between my Twitter friends and my real life friends (and my own personal life experiences), it breaks my heart to see people stuck in these unhappy, imbalanced relationships.
