HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and yours! I am truly blessed and thankful for my wonderful family, friends, and my online community family who have been very supportive since the beginning of my publishing journey. Above all, I am thankful to our Heavenly Father, with Him all things are possible and have been possible! Have a fantastic Thanksgiving Day!!
I am super excited to announce that I am currently interning with The Zharmae Publishing Pressas a Publisher's Intern!My aspiration and long term goal is to become an Editor for Children's, Middle Grade, and YA novels.
I am about one week into my internship and I can honestly say I have been overwhelmed with excitement, anxiety, self-doubt, nervousness, and every other emotion you can think of. However, I am having so much fun learning this new trade; soaking in every aspect and detail that I can. My internship will definitely be challenging as I am expected to learn a lot and do a lot in a relatively short period of time. Here are a few of my responsibilities while interning with TZPP:
1. Acquire and bring to publication one middle grade work from source to acquisition to editorial, through managing editorial, art, production, and launch.
2. Copy edit, proof, and review one or two full manuscripts.
3. Work with artists and the designers for the cover of a book (this does not include the middle grade book from project 1.)
4. Assist with the managing editor role, which includes all stages of production.
5. Contribute web articles to TZPP, which will be featured as part of the Writer's Workshop series.
6. Read as a Panel Reader for TZPP regularly (basic assessments of manuscripts).
I am working under the direction and supervision of TZPP's Associate Publisher, Tomiko Breland. I ask for your prayers and support as I embark and transition into this new career path in my life. This has been a long time dream and I am finally living it!
~LOVE WHAT YOU DO AND YOU WILL NEVER WORK A DAY IN YOUR LIFE~
Hi there. I have returned! I know I have been away for awhile, but actually I never really left. Although I have not blogged since December of 2012, I continue to remain active on other social media sites; such as Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. With regard to my absence--I felt the need to take a break. I needed a little time away to recharge, restore, renew, and simply revive myself and my writing path. I will elaborate more at a later time. I have also thought long and hard about revamping this blog. Not sure yet what my plans are, but I feel the need to take this blog in another direction. With that being said, please bare with me as you might see some changes happening in the near future. Until I can establish some clear direction as to where I want this blog to go and what I want it to accomplish, my postings may be few and far between. I will periodically post updates. And like I stated previously, you can always catch me on one of the other social media sites. What?! Did you think I could fully let go of my social media addiction? Ha Ha! ;-) God Bless!

I like to DREAM big and HOPE even bigger!
I am an editor with Polished Paragraphs, former Executive Editor of The Zharmae Publishing Press, licensed attorney, writer, blogger, amateur artist, "wannabe" photographer, wife, and mother to three. I have independently published four (of seven) flash fiction Christian children's eBooks that are currently available on Amazon.com. I have always had a passion for writing short stories and poems, and equally love to read cleverly written, quirky children's books as well as non-fiction, inspirational, MG, YA, and some speculative fiction. I was born and raised in California, but now reside with my family in Richmond, Texas.
