Ever wonder how people deal with a broken heart? As an author of more than 11 books, I have written my share of heartache and loss. Come along and read a scene from my book Lost: Cinderella’s Secret Witch Diaries and I’ll walk you through the anatomy of the scene and the meaning behind it. The Cinderella we grew up with might be a happy ever after story, but my retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale is more complicated and darker than that…
I've been writing a long, long time and I wanted to share with you a free short story entitled "Such Sinners We Are." This little gem holds a special place in my heart. I grew up in the Catholic faith and this story is a complicated one as I wanted to explore what self-sacrifice and love is all about. I had a lot of fun writing this story and hope you enjoy it!
The following Cinderella story takes place about 10 years before the events in Lost (book 1 in the Cinderella’s Secret Witch Diaries series). I hope you enjoy!
Under the Dark Gray Clouds
Cinderella held her head high and stood by her father. The rain came down heavy, incessant, as though the sound of the rain drops hitting the frozen ground could erase, or at least numb, the pain.
I love reading. There are so many books out there these days and so little time. But that's a good thing! I'd rather have a tremendous amount of choice to go through than not enough. But there was a time that I only read one type of book. I loved fantasy and that was it. As a kid, I grew up on The Lord of the Rings and then Dungeons & Dragons. I loved elves, magic and wizards.
