‘I Love You’ – A Short Story

This is part three of 'Doors Away.' ❤ Enjoy! Kneeling beside the edge of the pool, she smiled at her reflection in the murky waters. Her rain boots were strapped securely around her feet, and she knew that her companion was just behind her on the trail. Even though he had warned her to stay… Continue reading ‘I Love You’ – A Short Story

‘First’ – A Short Story

This is part two of 'Doors Away.' ❤ Enjoy! “I didn’t know this place existed!” She stepped up onto the concrete, angling herself as close as she could to the sparkling water. “That’s understandable,” he said, and she noticed when he grinned slightly. “You just moved here.” She turned toward him again and graced him… Continue reading ‘First’ – A Short Story

‘Doors Away’ – A Short Story

The hedge that separated them had always made her curious. Grinning in a silly manner, she once again stood idly upon her doormat and glanced, as best she could, over the barrier. The most frustrating thing was that the leaves were angled down toward her, creating a wall for her neighbor to easily hide behind.… Continue reading ‘Doors Away’ – A Short Story

Introducing: My New Story!

Hi there! I hope you're having a beautiful Tuesday. ❤ Recently, I have been thinking about covering topics on my blog that haven't appeared in my posts in weeks (even months, in some cases!). I like to keep a variety of focuses in my posts because otherwise, my content gets repetitive. 🙂 Ironically, I just… Continue reading Introducing: My New Story!

‘Home’ – A Short Story

"You were absolutely wonderful, sweetheart!" The woman knelt down in front of the young child, securing her camera back around her neck. With a smile, she reached out and pushed back the blond curls that framed her daughter's face. "Are you ready to be done with our little photoshoot now?" "Yes, mommy," the child replied,… Continue reading ‘Home’ – A Short Story

Meeting Elizabeth! | One Year Ago Today

Grinning at my dad as he let me through the security doors, I walked as quickly as I could by his side without seeming conspicuous. I had been waiting for months for the encounter that was soon to follow, and it was hard for me to believe that the hour had finally come. Moments before,… Continue reading Meeting Elizabeth! | One Year Ago Today

Writing a Historical Fiction Novel ~ Staying Inspired

Writing a story takes a lot of time, effort, and motivation. It takes allowing the characters to grow in your mind, imagining the type of setting/s you'll be placing them in, and deciding where you want the book to begin, go, and end. As I've found through the planning process of my own current novel,… Continue reading Writing a Historical Fiction Novel ~ Staying Inspired

‘Jump’ – A Short Story

"Go on," he said softly, his deep voice resonating in my ears; "jump." I grinned brightly, and without turning to look at him, I shook my head. My hair, which was coiled into a ponytail at the time, swished across my shoulders. As it did, I sensed that it hit something. Before I could swivel… Continue reading ‘Jump’ – A Short Story
