    New York City and Book Inspiration

    As those of you on my email list know, I was on vacation in New York City last week! It was my first time there and I was surprised by how much I loved every grimy, crowded second of it. While I was there, I saw two shows: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Live and Tootsie. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is one of my favorite TV shows, and it just finished its final season on The CW. If you haven’t seen it, you’re probably judging me for loving a show on The CW, but just trust me. It’s a musical comedy show about a girl who moves across the country to be with a man…

    New Book: ‘Observation’ — coming soon!

    My first book is hitting Amazon at an undisclosed date sometime in the near future! And yes, that was incredibly vague, thank you for noticing! I signed on with Eburnean Books a few months ago and have been working on¬†Observation ever since. It’s a novella about a new teacher, named Erin, who starts working at a high school in Kentucky and falls in love with both the profession and a certain male coworker. I taught English/Language Arts for several years before starting my writing career, so a lot of the book was inspired by my personal experience. I did not fall in love with any of my coworkers, but I…
