Welcome friends, readers, and explorers!
I’m excited to share the GLISTEN, book 2 in The Black Swan Files has been nominated for seven awards this year, and recently won the 2017 Write Touch Readers Award for Best Young Adult! I was even given this lovely quote from a judge:
“This is an extremely well written young adult book. The author is very gifted.” ~2017 Write Touch judge, 2017 Write Touch Readers Award
In addition, GLISTEN recently won the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for Best Young Adult Fiction and took Silver in the eLit Awards for Best Juvenile/Young Adult Fiction. GLISTEN is a continuation of Jocelyn’s journey to becoming a superhero. It is a book that is full of action, emotion, adventure, and the values that bind us together whether as friends or family.
If you haven’t picked up one of my books yet, GLIMMER and GLISTEN are both available on Amazon.
“Glisten had me laughing out loud and on the verge of tears, it is a hard novel to put down! Just as enjoyable, thrilling and emotional as its predecessor.”
~Sarah Palmer, Confessions of a Lit Addict
“Fast paced, exciting and emotional! Glisten is the perfect sequel to Glimmer and will have readers rooting for the brilliantly written characters.”
~Uma Shankari, Books.Bags.Burgers.

It can be a lot of hard work—the sorting, the selling, the recycling, the giving away, and then finding the right spot for what is left. And it seems like there is always more that can be purged. But when it’s done, the benefits are many and ongoing.
My advice…don’t wait until you move to make your home, and life, right again. There are things we hold onto for good reasons—believe me, I had a good reason to hold onto everything. There was always something I was going to use again, “some day”. But, paring your life down to what you need and enjoy every day, brings a great deal of freedom.
I’m not going to go into the scientific reasons why purging is good for you, but these are some real and genuine benefits I’ve enjoyed from my recent purge.
- I actually know what I have and where it is—which means everything is quickly within my grasp when I need it.
