-I edited A LOT of books for other people for work
-I reviewed some books for Reedsy Discovery
-I attended several lives with amazing writers
-I did a reading live for Down Falls The King
-I celebrated the one-year anniversary of publicly sharing my writing journey
And those are just the highlights!
If your writing is a long-term part of your life, you never really "cross" your finish line. Instead that line gets pushed back again and again and again.
So remember to be kind to yourself.
Show yourself the same care you show others.
And allow yourself to be human.
With the craziness of life lately, it's been a while since I gave some shout-outs, but today I am excited to share three new featured indie authors with you guys!
Each of the authors below has their own featured author page here on my website, and stay tuned for more information about live interviews with them on Instagram in the coming weeks.

Starfire Express recipe card downloads are here!
A celebration tour (especially on a train full of magical monsters) would not be a celebration without some celebration food. Here are two recipes inspired by the favorite food of some of these magical creatures: the troll sisters' favorite chicken salad sandwiches, and Squishy's "Inky" (black bean) soup.
