I am so grateful to be given this opportunity to share my love of writing with the world. Across the past few years, I’ve gotten immersed in the foreign world of business and publishing and forgot my true intent. I denied myself my lifeblood of writing and storytelling.
I welcome 2022 with a new perspective and a firm intention to write daily for my own enjoyment. And I intend to share and develop my voice as I continue to conquer the worlds of business and publishing, alike. And with that, I am relaunching my novel, Morning Star, in February. 😍
