There's no doubt in my mind that I am a musical learner.  I cannot stand silence.  It is distracting and becomes the loudest, most annoying noise I can hear.  Isn't silence supposed to be silent?

Did anyone else love the movie, Mulan?  It was one of my favorites because I was a bit of a tomboy, and I loved that the girl not only saved her family, but she saved her country as well.  One of my favorite lines is at the end of the movie when the emperor tells Li Sh...

I had a conversation the other day with a very good friend of mine about how I listened to a certain radio station when I wrote Defiant.  She told me how she loved hearing about the different pieces of what goes on while I write the novels she's read.  So, I decided to...

After most of the initial rounds of content edits for my latest novel, I'm excited to announce that I'm ready to begin my next project. 

 I've always loved the way Jesus calls Himself our "Good Shepherd".  When I first became a Christian at sixteen, I had no idea what a...
