My second novel Never Too Soon will be released in September 2019. It’s been five years since my first novel, Anytime Soon was released and I’m excited to be in the final phase of the editing process and moving on to publication.

In anticipation of the release, over the next few months, I will share blog posts related to some of the life issues from the characters in my second book.

If you've ever read any of my writings, you will know that my stories encompass real-life tribulations including addiction, relationships, childhood trauma, mental illness and all the other stuff we go through. I try to glean from personal and shared experiences, and I also try to include messages of redemption, hope, love, and reconciliation.  The struggle comes full circle in my stories y'all.

What I try to portray through my writing is that pain and isolation are not unique to anyone.  Everybody struggles with something, but the trick is how you manage your self while you are going through those struggles.

So if you are reading this and you are going through something that seems impossible--remember that struggles make us stronger, tenacity makes us better, and faith yields assurance.

Hang in there. Things will get better.
