In October, I started working part-time at Joann Fabrics, handling the cutting counter, which I love, usually. I’ve gone through a few weeks of wishing, more than anything, I could quit, mainly because I was tired every day and felt like I was missing family stuff.

Sorry I haven’t updated in a while. As you may have heard, Baton Rouge and surrounding areas have suffered the worst natural disaster since Superstorm Sandy. My family is all safe, but my husband’s whole family have moved in as their house was under 28 inches of water. So there are a total of six …

This excerpt comes from Pigsty Princess, my latest epic fantasy novel (released in February). Buy links are at the …
Check out this blog post by a friend of mine, Heather Gray. She started Wordy Wednesdays, and I think it’s a cute idea. Here’s mine, which you can also read in the comments over there, along with lots of other excerpts. “Why would the Royal Princess fire Nicoletta?” Darius asked, putting his arm around the …
Hi, my pretty, pretty princesses! I hope spring is beginning to show her face where you live. Here in Louisiana, it’s wet today but finally we’re not dealing with cold weather that we’re not used to. Easter Sunday was beautiful, although it got a bit rainy in the afternoon. Mass was, as always, joyous and …

The concept of the sensitivities is very intriguing and it will be interesting to see how that goes further into the series. 5 Stars: Wonderful story and great read. I enjoyed the book a lot – and …
