Where To Begin…
Glimmer recently won a GOLD MEDAL from the Independent Publisher Book Awards (an IPPY) for Best Young Adult E-Book and an Honorable Mention in Genre Fiction from the North Street Book Prize.
Glimmer, the first book in The Black Swan Files is available now. YA LOVE MAGAZINE says, “Glimmer is a thrilling adventure set in the near future and it completely took me by surprise! The book completely holds its own in the YA genre and produces a strange mix of tech, thriller, romance and adventure, inevitably though it is a book about teen angst and self-discovery (as all good YA books are). To its benefit this book is not set in a dystopian world, instead it cements itself in a very near future with possibilities that don’t stray that far from our imagination. Perhaps that is why it is so gripping, it is unrealistic and perfectly realistic at the same time. Read full review here.
The Black Swan Files introduces a new superhero—and she’s come to kick ass, take names, and reclaim what was stolen from her…as soon as she escapes a high-tech, military facility where science and technology operate in ethically gray areas and freedom is negotiable.
Fortunately she’s not alone in her quest for freedom.
Glimmer is available in all formats, including a print version through Amazon.com
I hope you will check it out my other work. A good start is Siren’s Song which received decent recognition and awards, and is a book that a lot of men enjoyed for the humor, characters and action. That said, my audience is young females—and the romance between the heroine and hero is pretty epic in this book.

- Dealing with Disappointment: How to Handle Being Replaced or Overlooked
Disappointments Are Pivotal Moments
There are always going to be times in our lives when we lose a role on a team, a part in a play, or are replaced by new fresh blood—either at school, work, or at home.
This is never an easy experience.
It is an experience that can make you feel too old, too young, too inexperienced, inadequate, threatened, embarrassed, and even fearful of becoming irrelevant (and therefore you will lose your job, your partner will dump you, your children will abandon you, and you’ll become homeless and die alone).
Yes, there are some of us who take it all the way to the bitter end. I don’t wish this on anyone.
All those emotions are uncomfortable. And I know personally, I can wallow in useless emotions quite spectacularly, giving them a lot more importance than they deserve in my awesome life.
As awkward or uncomfortable this moment is in your life, you must remember that one change or loss, does not make your life, predict your success, or determine who you can be or will be. It’s just that in the moment—it hurts.
