2015 Pitchwars Mentee Bio

Well here goes nothing. 

I apologize in advance for typos, ramblings and things that just don't make sense.

Guarantee they make sense in my head.

I'm married to my high school sweetheart and the mom of two blonde monsters. And one miniature Dalmatian, (she's part terrier). I am a proud Wisconsinite. I hate the winters here though.

I have a not so secret crush on Miles Teller and I am crushed that they cancelled Glee.

I guess you want to know about my writing... right? Because this is a writing bio...

I entered my debut novel Neophyte. This is like the third year I entered it.. and the last time I will. I only entered with it this one last time because I rewrote it and edited it to be an NA where it used to be a YA.

Neo is the first book in a seven book planned paranormal series, titled Linked. All of which are NA.  Luminary and Rogue are completed and just need final edits.

Currently I am writing Guardian and Ipsum simultaneously.

Not in the Linked Series I have also written:

- Tainted Lullaby which is an NA contemporary romance and is in need of edits.

- Superman (working title not actual) which is also a NA contemporary romance. Which I need to finish writing.

- Space Grease is my YA sci-fi that I just started writing and am so excited about.

Things about me that are not writer related... I love shopping, crafting, writing (duh), I once tried out to be a professional cheerleader and laughed hysterically through the entire audition.

Im a soccer mom (4 days a week) and a dance mom (2-3 days a week) and still fit in time to sleep and stare at the laundry monster.

I've tried to lure cleaning elves to my house with cookies but they were not impressed and so my house is always in a perpetual state of maybe clean.

If I had a super power it would be the ability to read minds.

And beyond popular believe I was not raised by wolves. But I am addicted to high heels.

Favorite foods are salad and ice cream.

Yes I am a contradiction.

Deal with it.

I think I've numbed your brain enough.

Have a good day.

From the depths of chaos,

I have been staring at a blinking cursor for half an hour now.

I should be writing, I have a deadline and this one only has about 20k worth of content to write.

But the cursor keeps blinking and I just keep staring at it.

I've had stories come to me in an instant, and I've had stories I had to dig up every word. This is proving to be the later.

For being a short story, its taking far to long to get it out.

What do you do when you hit a brick wall when you're working on something?

Until next time,

Going mobile

So, I'm learning to be more tech savvy.

I just figured out I could blog from my phone, which will make keeping all of you wonderful fans up to date on all my writing adventures and news!!


If I can figure out how to make the posts pretty and chaotic like all the ones I write from my computer I will do that too!

So as for writing news...

Here is what I am currently working on:

Neophyte - final edits (I have a couple queries still out there if nothing comes back I'm hoping to get it in your hands this fall via self-pubbing. Both digitally and in paper form.)

For those of you that read the original Neophyte 3 years ago when I jumped the gun and pubbed it before really knowing what I was doing... first let me say I'm sorry for being so unprofessional about it. And that you'd really enjoy the new version. It is clean, edited and polished. And while it's similar to the original, it is such a better story now. And I am re-marketing it as New Adult instead of Young Adult so it flows with the rest of the series.

Luminary - is done. Just needs some touch ups and final edits. This was a secret project book that surprised even me. I can not wait to share it with you!

Rogue - is also done. But needs a little face lift and edits.

Guardian and Ipsum are both in the works to be written, but are currently in pieces.

Human (working title, not actual title) - prequel novella to Neophyte. Gives you a look into the angel world pre-Addisyn.

As for other books/series I've been work I on...

Pink Elephants/Superman (working title not actual title) - A NA contemporary romance about an aspiring dancer is about halfway written and proving to be a great read. (This I refer to as my Miles Teller novel because he inspired the main male lead)

Tainted Lullaby - written but under major construction. NA contemporary romance. Need to rework some of the bugs in this one. But its such a great book and I love, love, love Dex, the main male lead.

Space Grease - YA Sci-fi. This was a pet project that I'm not sure how far it will go, but it's a lot of fun to write. 

So that's what I've been up to lately. What about you?

Comment and tell me what you've been reading this summer! I'd love to hear from you all!

2015 Here we go!

So, yes, it's been awhile.
Life has been crazy!
My 10 year old fur-baby, Tipsy passed away, leaving a LARGE hole in our hearts (she was a great dane). And after having to endure my 7 year old son listening to "The sad song" over and over in his room, we adopted a puppy.
Well, toddler dog, not really a puppy. She is about 11 months old now. And she keeps us busy!

She's a Dalmatian/terrier and about 30lbs of energy. She keeps us busy, and she also is a perfect fit for our family. She loves the Monsters and cuddles with anyone.
But on the book side of my life....
-- I've finished writing and editing Luminary. --
-- AND I've finished writing Rogue. --
**Oh, I should note, Neophyte is YA, while the rest of the series falls more into the NA category**
Next up in the Linked Series is Ipsum.
But I am torn...
Because I have a NA Contempary Romance I would like to edit and get done too.
So I ask you...
Work on more Linked Books OR edit the contemporary romance?
I also have another contemporary romance that I wrote about 1/3 of that I could finish too.
What do to, what do to?
Until next time!
