Guys! The comments on my site have been broken and I don’t know how long it’s been going on! I’m so sorry!

THANK YOU for all of the emails I got about the planners (and the fact that you couldn’t comment on the post, or actually download the planners. Again, so sorry!)

I’m trying to figure out why everything with the site seems to have gone so wacky (my pages are out of order, comments, etc.) so thanks in advance for your patience. Now, on to the good stuff.


So I generally don’t talk about my current, in process writing too much, but I thought I’d go ahead and share a little update, since it’s the beginning of the year:

Stealing the Ruby Slippers and Finding the Ruby Slippers are both available for sale everywhere digitally and in select indie book stores in Minnesota. Both books are getting really good reviews and sales, and I’m super happy with how things are going. If you’re a blogger or reviewer and would like a copy shoot me an email.

I have a completed book, Home, that I’m shopping to both agents and publishers. I am still considering the self-publishing option, but this book is so different from the Ruby Slippers series that I’d really like a larger team behind it. The premise is this: Ashley is an accidental agoraphobic: she worked a super stressful job that basically ran her life for years, and when the job went away, she took full advantage of the ability to stay home for a while, relax, and focus on creating a life she really loved. But now, it’s been four years, and she hasn’t left her house, and her sister, Megan, has a critical kidney disease. Megan needs a transplant, and Ashley is the only option. But, even if she can overcome the crippling panic attacks and get to the hospital, she may not be able to pass the psychological exam to donate.

I’m currently re-writing (for the millionth time) Clouded. The main character’s name has changed, as have most of the details. The big plot points remain: It’s about a girl who moves to Nashville and lands her dream job in the music industry. But things aren’t nearly as dreamy as she thought. After she gets fully integrated into the industry, she’s not sure who she can trust. Or whether she’s even trustworthy herself.

Short Stories: I’ve got three in-process short stories, and ideas for several more. Nothing I really want to share yet though.

What are you reading? What are you writing/creating?

    Hi Amanda,
    Good to dear from you. Gee, I can say, “I knew her when……” So happy for you. What is your degree in? You sound very energized for the new year.
    I just read “Me Before You” by Jojo Moe’s for my local book club at the library. I am going to see if your books have been purchased for our system. If not, I will request them.
    More later. Maybe you could come speak to us. Last year there was a series of authors that spoke at the suburban libraries and sold their books
    Think it was supported by that state grant for the Arts.
    Have a great day. Bet your kids love to make snowmen in this weather!
    Love and peace, Lois
