Thank you for celebrating release day with me for the short story and poetry collection Consequence of Gravity! I have been writing these stories for the past 8 years and I’m thrilled to finally have them in a collection for you to enjoy.
These were the questions I asked myself while writing the stories in Consequence of Gravity: Have you thought about living alone on a distant planet only to find you were not alone? Have you considered being an astronaut only to have to leave your family behind and visit them a few times a year? Have you considered a future where you send your children away to safety only to have them be raised by robots?
In the poem Mission to Mars, I focused on imposter syndrome and fear of failure as a professional and a mother. I also contemplate the idea of serving your community and mankind while losing out on the only people who will truly remember you in the end.
I’ve been working really hard toward my task list each week. I’ve been cranking out lots of words into the Asteroid Riders series and Sparrow Man 4. I’ve also been getting paperbacks and hardcovers released for books that have been out for a while. I am happy to say that this year has started with a cluster of exciting news. A few weeks ago I had a zoom pitch session with a publisher for the fantasy novel I completed in December. The pitch session was facilitated by an amazing fellow author. The pitch went well and the editor asked for a full read! So we will see what becomes of it. Also, a collaborative project that started seven years ago might actually come to fruition by the end of the month. This was some awesome news I got yesterday and I’m really hoping to be able to tell you all about it as soon as I can. Also, I will have new stories for you to read in the coming months. Check out the new releases in the announcements below 🙂
We’ve been watching MoonKnight and I am so inspired by the intricacies of the Marvel universe. I didn’t read comics as a kid so this has been my husbands turn to interrupt the show and explain what actually happened in the comic or how the comic was different from the TV show or movie. It’s a nice change to not be the one interrupting to say over and over again, “well in the book ___ happened.”

Happy Summer Friends!
Welcome back. I hope you’re heading into summer with many books in your TBR list and on your bookshelf. I am excited to transition to beach reading and enjoying the low census at my day job. (And hopefully that means I’ll have more time to dedicate to writing every day!)
Since we last spoke, I’ve been steadily working on paperback and hardcovers. In June there will be two new releases! The third novella in the Asteroid Riders Series will release 6/2 and the short story and poetry collection Consequence of Gravity will release 6/28! Yay. Consequence of Gravity will release with eBook, paperback, and hardcover editions ready for you to buy. I’ve been posting lots of teaser videos on Tik-Tok and Reels (Reels are under my personal account, follow me!). I am really loving how the Hardcover has turned out. (If you see my videos please like and share)
July will be a fun month with the Hardcover release of Let Her Go. In August the Hardcover of Midsummer Night’s Dream and another Asteroid Rider’s story will be released.
You’ve probably noticed that my books sit in different genre’s. I have a hard time getting people who loved Let Her Go to consider my other books, but I just want to say that the other books are written in the same style as Let Her Go. So if you really loved this book and you’re comfortable stepping outside the contemporary romance genre, pick up Muse or Asteroid Riders or The Phoenix Project. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Short Story and Poetry Collection New Release 6/28
A collection of short stories set on Earth, space, and distant planets. This collection features the shorty story Glitch (originally published in The First Line literary journal) and the first publication of the poetry collection Consequence of Gravity. These are stories I’ve been working on for the past few years that I really love and hope to expand on in the future. The Main characters in these stories explore loneliness, love, loss, and test the boundaries of humanity. These are stories of compassion and insight into the ever evolving characters that we are and become throughout our lifetimes.Available in eBook on Kindle Unlimited, Paperback, and Hardcover. (Paperback and Hardcovers go on sale 6/26)
Happy Release day to Asteroid Riders: Comfort in the Chaos (Part 2)
Hey! Part 2 of the Asteroid Riders series is out! If you preordered, thank you! If you have Kindle Unlimited, this series is free to you. If you simply use Kindle to read, don’t worry, the price is only $0.99. I’ve always loved Nat and Jack’s story and it has been swirling in my mind for years now. I’m so excited to get these stories out to you all.
