New Project

I am so excited to announce that I have started a co-writing project with the awesomely talented Catherine Black.

A little back story here . . .

Catherine and I have had mutual friends for years and never once crossed paths. In fact, her mother was my youngest son's aid in school during his kindergarten year. Never put two and two together really.  I live in a tiny mid-west town of 2500 people, and she lives 13 miles up the road in an even smaller town, population 212.

I have no idea how we hadn't crossed paths before a year ago, but let me tell you, I believe God has a perfect sense of timing because he placed Catherine and me in the same place at the same time.

To be perfectly honest, I was intimidated by her. Seriously! She's far more successful than I have been since hitting the writing scene, and honestly, a much better writer than I am. It is because of that, that we bonded. Well, that, a little bit of snark, a whole lot of sass, and just some good ole chuckles. I realized that she could teach me something, and I was eager to learn.

Over the last year, I cannot count how many times she's helped me, listened to me gripe about this scene or that scene. Most of my writing friends live thousands of miles away and it's hard to see them and it makes me miss them a little more when I can't see or talk to them. It's nice to have someone close to home that can relate to everything I've been through and am currently going through with my career. She's given me tips and pointers and just been all around cool! A few months ago, I was ready to throw in the towel, to be completely honest. She picked me up when I wanted to quit and encouraged me to continue.

Somewhere along the way, we became more than just acquaintances that are in the same line of work. We became friends. We were laughing one night and I said, I think we should write a book together . . . well . . . As of last night . . . that is exactly what we are doing!
I cannot wait for you guys to get your hands on this book because it's going to be epic!

She's actually releasing another book on 7-10-2018 and will be my special guest! I'm leaving the pre-order link for her new book Savage as well as her website link below. Trust me guys, I've read bits and pieces of it and I cannot WAIT to get my hands on it!!!!

She is also throwing a launch party on July 10th! It's going to be all kinds of cool! Games. Give aways. Always a good time!

  1. You are literally one of my favorite people in the whole world.
    This is our job now. To pick each other up when we think we can't go on. We'll both have days (or even weeks or months) like that, but I am too stubborn to quit and you are too talented to quit. The world needs your words.
    We've got this, lady. One day we're gonna look back on the day we met and say, "That was fate...look how far we've come."
