Arise and Shine

Driving home in the hilly country after working a third shift job, James dozed off behind the wheel. His family became alarmed when he hadn’t returned and began calling his job and friends and finally the police. James was found in a ditch, onconscious, barely alive. They rushed him to a hospital where he was…

Bonus Post:Calling All Writers

Normally, I don’t post on a Monday. However, I have good news to share and I couldn’t hang onto until the next post! For my readers who love writing, or those who might be expanding their platforms, need publishing credits, and/or have been wanting to be in a book, but maybe aren’t quite ready to…

Dusting Off Trunk Books

It surprises most people to find out that ghostwriting is “a thing.” But truthfully, most celebrities, politicians, and entertainers don’t have time to write a book.

Can What You Put in Your Mouth Affect Your Positivity?

Many years ago, a friend of mine slipped and fell on the ice dislocating their shoulder. Because of the timing, I was the only person they could reach to take them to the hospital. Having a bone out of joint causes extreme pain. Muscles are stretched in ways they were not intended. As I drove…

Grateful to be Free

There’s a lot about my country that isn’t perfect. Being American doesn’t mean I agree with those bad things that happen here, or to the people who don’t look like me. But, I was born here and I want to make a difference. I appreciate the sacrifices that were made so I could be free…
