Happy Book Birthday!

Please welcome Not A Doctor Logan's Divorce Book to the shelves! 





Writing this book came easy. I guess I'd been waiting all of my childhood to write this story. A few months later, the manuscript won first prize in the Utah Arts Council Original Writing Competition. But finding a home for an issue-driven book proved a lot more difficult. It's not the next Big Thing, but now this book can find the readers who need it, thanks to Character Publishing.

About The Book:

Until 107 days ago, eleven year old Logan had never heard of Dr. Donna's Divorce Book. Now Mom has Dr. Donna quotes stuck all over the house. It's up to Logan to put an end to all this nonsense and reunite her parents. In the meantime, she's writing her own self-help book called, "Not-A-Dr.-Logan's Divorce Book."

As time passes, Logan's attempts to make her parents fall back in love become more and more desperate. When acting out in school, calling a prayer hotline, and doing magic in the desert don't force her parents back together, Logan begins to accept that her family may never be the same. Learning to dive on a team and making a new best friend help her to cope with her parent's divorce, but will she ever truly be happy again?

Camp NaNo Week #4: Failure?

I didn't get to print out a Camp NaNoWriMo winner's certificate this month. Of the half-a-dozen times I've committed to fast-drafting this is the first time I've failed. But I'm not too upset.

I have 3,000 words of a short story that wouldn't have existed if I hadn't attempted to write 10,000 words during this crazy-busy flying all around the place April. I'm excited to finish the story and write the next one and next one now. Life is going to slow down quite a bit soon.

Lazy summer days are ahead for me!
