I’ve sat down and wrote out a list of things I want to discuss on here over the next few weeks. Topics like depression, fears, health, anxiety, jealousy, self-esteem, social media and more. The objective is to 1-keep this place active. Life had taken hold and really distracted me and I want to get back to the purpose of this space. 2-educate. We all can learn more daily and I am hoping to help someone, at least one person, with my posts. 3- so the readers can learn more about, even as I am discovering more about myself. I hope to see you around the blog as these topics start rolling out. If there is something in particular you’d like to read about… let me know! I’m open for suggestions anytime.
It’s never easy to keep everything in check in life, when life runs amuck. Since the near beginning of February
I don’t remember exactly when I wrote this piece but thought I’d share it here… I hope you enjoy it. The Darkness Rain fell against the tin roof as the heavens battled above. Lightning flashed and thunder roared as the night fell away and the morning drew near. The witching hour was almost upon her as her dreams twisted into terrors. Running through the woods, chased by a darkness with no body, no shape or indication of life. Dread filled her as the presence grew near. The forest thick, making progress slow as her body scraped against the brush trying to hold on to her, to keep her from running. A large oak tree stood only yards away, but her dress had snagged on some briars and did all it could to maintain its hold on her there. The cotton gown twisted into the thorns and tore as she pulled herself free to find safety behind the giant oak. Her breath struggled to come to her

In case you missed the new release, Unexpected Allies came out not too long ago. For nineteen-year-old Elizabeth, magic was something that never existed until about a year ago. One dream had changed her life forever. A dream that revealed a world she was meant to live in but had been hidden from her since a toddler. Now her life is flooded with magic, family drama, and inner circle politics of how the Witch’s Council and her coven should run and who should run it she must look to the past to guide the future. Elizabeth has been through it all with her recently found powers and the end of the struggle draws near, she hopes.
