I’m grateful for the wishes that came true. And — now that the sting has worn off — I’m grateful for the ones that didn’t.

I’m grateful for the dreams that have never left me. That growing up didn’t mean leaving behind the kingdom of my childhood.

I’m grateful that the world didn’t end when I felt like it would. That sad days did end when it felt like they would go on forever.

I’m grateful for good books and songs that play on the radio at the perfect moment. For long drives on sunny mornings and being so happy I can’t sit still.

I’m grateful for bright red lipstick, hot cups of tea, and old movies. That the same thick-framed glasses I wore in the forth grade are now somehow cool. That chucks always look better with age.

I’m grateful for wonderful friendships that last — friendships that even time and distance can’t break asunder.

Hey everyone! 32 new designs have been added to my portfolio in the cover and paperback sections. Let me know what you think of the covers!

I've also added a new calendar on both the front page of my website and the contact page to show when I'm available and when I'm booked, and a new secret page for my clients (clients will be getting an email about that soon).

Today is the cover reveal for Jennifer Snyder's The Unloved, and she's doing a giveaway to celebrate. Find out more here.

I'm going to be doing a blog post next week in which I answer questions about cover design. If you have a question you'd like to add, please leave it in the comments or you can @mention me on twitter.

Someday I want to have my own home library. Until I have room for one, I'm collecting ideas and... read more at We Heart YA.

When I started high school, I went from reading Sweet Valley High and Babysitter's Club (Yay 90's!) to reading only classics. I fell in love with Shakespeare and Jane Austen, and I wanted to read anything that would transport me to another time.

So when I would see a classic story turned into a modern film, I always felt like.... read more at We Heart Ya.


This blog is about everything. It’s a collection of daydreams, fairytales, and hidden treasure. It’s a place for rainy days, stargazing, wonderful nonsense, and impossible things. It’s about passion and faith and nostalgia.
It’s about life.
