I open the door smiling ear to ear. “Welcome, come on in.”
I wave toward the entryway, and you step in with a few others who’ve gathered at the door.
I look back to my yellow Labrador, “Finn, stay.” He acknowledges the command. “Good boy.” His tail sweeps the floor in quick successions as his body sways with happiness for new guests at our home.
One in the group is taken by Finn and pets him on the head. Finn responds eagerly by the tail wagging double time.
The rest of the group follows me into the kitchen where I have a banquet finger food and dips displayed. Drinks are set off to the side to suit anyone’s fancy from beers to wines, and sodas.
“Please help yourselves and enjoy.” I pick up my wine glass and toast the newcomers. My husband, Handsome, comes from behind me wraps his arms around me and squeezes.
“More visitors?” He whispers in my ear.
I nod affirmatively.
“It’s about time.” He replies.

It’s my party and the start of my author journey. I am glad to have you here. I have written for awhile short stories, poetry but released my first novel, Magick, September 2016. I’ve taken various courses over the years working to become a better at my craft. It’s my goal to be able to become a full-time writer, but for now, I juggle with my day job and all the responsibilities of being a Wife and Mother. I will post to the blog twice a month, so check back as you can or subscribe to my blog (see in the footer). I will be posting about what I am working on, my writing process, and other pop culture type topics. If there is a particular item you’re jonesing for, please let me know in the comments below. I look forward to this part of my writers’ journey, and I hope you do too.
