Dreams

“You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, 'Why not?'” ~~ George Bernard Shaw

Do you remember when you were a kid and dreamed of being a ballerina or a fireman? Then twenty years later you pass a fire truck or go watch a ballet and think, what the heck happened to my dreams?

What did ever happen to our dreams? More than likely they began to slip away as we grew older and focused more on friends, school, growing up kind of stuff but I bet somewhere along the way we heard our dreams were crazy.  Somewhere along the way we started believing we should not dance to the beat of a different drummer.


How many times do we ourselves focusing on the negative instead of the positive? How many times do we tell ourselves we are grownup’s now with responsibilities and so we don’t have time to dream? I know I use to do this very thing.  I dreamed of being a writer and was discouraged by some, encouraged by others but the discouragement far outweighed the encouragement.  Then one day I just decided I was going to stop listening to the negatives inside my head.  Not allow others to discourage me and I started writing again.  I’m doing what I love and regardless of whether I am hugely successful or just do okay, the important thing is I’m finally following a long lost dream and in doing so, it made my world brighter.


 I say dance! Dance to the beat of a different drummer.  Find your inspiration.  Follow your dreams, it’s never too late to do so, and never stop believing you can achieve, you can succeed.  And most important of all, you can reach your dream even if your dream is to be that drummer.

It's Summer Time Giveaway

Many of you are aware of my mother's passing in October of 2016 and some of the other things that have been keeping my writing progress slowed, but I am working hard on catching up with those writing projects that came to a screeching halt at the end of last year.

Book three in my Bad Boy Fever series is well underway. I will be pushing to have Bound by the Bad Boy completed and released this year. Book two in my Lost Boys series, Kiss of Fire and Frost is also well underway and another of my books I will be pushing to complete.

Because I really do appreciate my readers and fans, and I'm thankful for your patience with me, I am doing an It's Summer Time Giveaway. What's on the summer giveaway list?

Excerpt:

With the phone to his ear, Cayden turned and looked at me, his sapphire gaze roaming from the hair piled in a messy bun atop my head, to my bubble-gum-pink-painted toenails before he smiled. My heart thrummed. Reaching out, he pulled me onto his lap where I willingly went, and picked up a pen from beside my laptop. Then, he crooked his head, holding the handset to the cordless in place against his shoulder to free his other hand and took a hold of mine. Curious, I wondered what he was up to. Cayden turned my hand over, palm side up. Swiped his fingers softly over my palm once. Wrote, I Love U,boldly across it. And then he curled my fingers closed, securing the words tight within the palm of my hand before he moved his hands from mine and took hol…
