"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."
 ~Sir Winston Churchill

This has been a long time coming. I wrote three books, published them, and then disappeared. Well, sort of disappeared. I became something greater than a writer. I became a mother. For three and a half years I have loved and nurtured a small human being. She is bright, beautiful, and teaches me more about life every day. I love her more than anything else in this world and even though I missed writing full time I knew my place and new purpose in life was to be a constant source of guidance for my daughter. The time has come that she has entered preschool and so, I have time again to delve back into my second passion. 

Writing.

And oh how I have missed the feel of a keyboard under my fingertips. Yes, I dabbled with some paragraphs here and there over the last three years, but time always escaped me. My ideas and characters were pushed to a corner in my mind and told to sit patiently and wait for the right time. The time is finally right. The ideas that were jotted down and stuffed in notebooks have been pulled out and dusted off. I am working on two novels. One (secretly already in it's second draft) is a contemporary YA. The other is a fantasy my mind has created into a twisted version of Sleeping Beauty. 

I am excited. 

So happy to be writing. Enthralled to have the time I can dedicate just for my books and muses. I have missed this part of my life so much. Welcome back, me. Welcome back. 

I will be posting here more as well, now that I have time. I missed you guys.

XOXO

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

Introducing a New Cat into a Household

Fostering the Drive

To say I have been busy is an understatement. I have a good excuse. Let me show you:




I have been fostering bottle baby kittens.

I struggled with many things in my life except this. Other than motherhood (which shocked me) I took to fostering right away. Long ago I wanted to travel the world, be a successful writer, and get rich off my crafty etsy side. I dabbled in some of those and quickly realized that I wasn't good at them. I never seemed to have the dedication or the drive to push me further. The will to keep going forward even on the hardest days. But, saving neonate kittens clicked with me. My soul stopped wandering. I no longer search for the legacy I will leave behind. I understand now that saving animals, especially cats has always been my calling.

I still have a long way to go in my journey but I will advocate for these little souls. I will fight to help them have the best start in life and I will learn everything I can as a feline behaviorist to campaign for the rights…
