My Christmas novella was a success, according to readers who purchased it. The positive feedback was encouraging, as it was my first traditionally published work.
In November, I signed an agreement with Anaiah Press to publish a contemporary romance about a billionaire and his longtime crush.
My road to publishing has been a long and difficult one, but God has helped me overcome obstacles and press on. In June 2019, I started a personal journey to a healthier lifestyle, including forming a habit of spending time in prayer and reading Scripture daily. I have seen the fruit of my efforts unfold as I feel stronger physically and spiritually as well.
Being a single mom has inspired me to face life’s challenges with courage. My 3 kids, who are all adults now, have been supportive of my writing. Although I lost my husband in 2010, he would be very proud of the woman I have become through God’s grace.
I believe that one day I will understand why everything has happened the way it has. For now, it is enough to know that God has a plan for my life, and that He who began a good work in me will carry it on to completion.
As I close out the year on a high note, I thank you all for your encouragement in my writing journey. I look forward to sharing more of my stories with you in the future.
