Motivation and Inspiration

In light of recent events, I have begun to question the importance of love and support.  Without them, what motivates you to strive to be the best that you can be?  Without them, what inspires you to greatness? 

With the tragedies that have happened in our nation during this past year, what could have changed the course of events?  What could have made those shooters say "Hey, I don't have to do this and I don't want to do this?"  Was is a lack of support?  Was it a lack of love? 

In every day life we all have the choice to be either basically good or basically bad.  Events can motivate you to shift from one end of the spectrum to the other.  People can inspire other people to either strive to be a better person or to fall into darkness. 

In the end, could having love and support have made a big difference?  All I know is that when you are on your own, when you feel like there is no one out there who loves you, no where out there you can go, and nothing left to live for, situations become dire and evil is committed.  So think about that before turning your back on someone who could really use your support.  Being there for them just might motivate and inspire them to reach for the stars instead of reaching for a gun.

The importance of a great song...

I have found that in order to fully concentrate on any given story, I must have my own soundtrack to listen to.  Does this mean that everyone has to listen to music to be able to write?  That answer is of course subjective to individual preferences.  For me though, just like music can evoke emotion in movies, it drives the theme of the story I am working on.  What types of music do you like to listen to, if any, while you are either reading or writing?  Food for thought :)

Free Ebooks!

Hello Everyone... In celebration of the upcoming holidays, I would like to give thanks by giving out free ebook copies of all 3 of my books! There is no catch or obligation to accept this offer. I just ask that you email me at : to request the Smashwords coupon codes. If you would rather I send the .pdf files please just let me know in your email. Please check out the descriptions and cover art for each of them below. I hope that you all enjoy these books and that if you do, you will spread the words to your friends and blog followers. This offer will be going on throughout the entire month of December. Thank you all and happy reading :) The Witches Lottery: When Sophia and Drew McKibben's parents are killed in a tragic car accident, they are shipped off to live with an aunt they never even knew existed. Believing that they are moving to a privately owned island just off of the coast of Mystic, CT to live alone with her, they are surprised to find a sort of under-aged bed and breakfast. Sophia draws the attention of one of the locals, Falen, immediately. He always seems to know exactly what she is thinking, and to her frustration, everything she does seems to amuse him. When a newcomer to the island brings with him a sense of deja vu, she begins to ask herself the ultimate question: Am I going crazy? Sophia's world starts to unravel when she notices her own brother acting just as abnormal as the rest of them. When she begins to realize that the life she left behind looks even more bizarre then the one she was forced to leave it for, she's faced with a decision to make: embrace the new life that has been given to her, or drown in the past. Either choice brings with it more secrets and deceptions to unearth. The problem now is that the two worlds may actually be more intertwined than she thought. A Dragon Forsaken: In a world of mystery and magic, Daphne is unique. Unlike her friends, who have awakened to the magic inside of them, Daphne was born with it. Daphne was born a Dragon. When her past begins to resurface, forcing her into a web of lies and deception, she is forced to accept unexpected alliances and risk everything for the sake of love. Something that she swore she would never let into her life. As the newest installment of The Enchanted Island Series unfolds, she'll learn that nothing is ever what it seems, and when webs get this tangled, everyone's fate hangs in the balance, and nothing is coincidence. The Willows: Life is easy when you have everything you want; great friends, a boyfriend who loves you, a happy family that supports you, brothers that both protect and annoy you. I had all of that… once. That was before the accident. That was before the murder. That was before… The Willows. Evelyn Magwire now has a choice to make. Does she turn her back on the mysteries that have consumed her life, or does she face the darkness and find the truth? When her brother comes up missing, the choice is made for her. Forced on a path where her friends become her enemies and her enemies become her friends, Evie learns that the changes happening to herself are the scariest of all. She’s not sure she will ever be the same again… Because some changes are forever… and bloodlust… never dies. Also... Be sure to keep an eye out for my newest book, Guardian of the Realm: A Faerie Tale Coming Soon!
