You Gotta Just Be You!
I hated being in my twenties. Oh I had a terrible time. I was depressed all the time and things just didn’t ever seem to go right. And let’s not mention the harsh journey I was on to break into the writing field. When I was around 21, my mom (RIP) told me that things would get better once I turned 30. She said once you hit 30 you’re more content with yourself and you no longer put pressure on yourself to be like others think you should be.
I’ve always been different, but still I fell under pressures to act a certain way or do certain things just so others would stop nagging me about being different. I doubted my mother’s words even though I knew in my heart that she was right. Well guess what, she was very right. Actually when I turned around 28, my entire mindset changed. I mean I was an entirely different woman. I finally shed my cocoon. Sadly this is when my mom passed away, but her death gave me more strength. I knew she had confidence in me and I wasn’t gonna let her down.
By the time I was 31, I was in my own shell and loving it. I did not care what anyone thought of me in terms of how I lived my life, how I looked, or the choices I made. I was happy just being me. Now I’m 35 and I am happy and content. I’m single and no I don’t want to ever get married and I never did. I don’t have kids and that is something I never wanted either. I am a homebody, no scratch that, I am reclusive,and I have anxiety disorder. So folks might think I am strange because I don’t love club-hopping or dating, but you know what…I do not care. I really don’t. I don’t care what anyone thinks of me or my life because I am happy. Oh yes I am. I can stand in the mirror and say I am comfortable with the woman I am and honestly mean it. How many women can say that? Women have a hard time accepting themselves because we try so hard to impress others. You don’t see men doing that. Why do we feel we need to?

We can’t blame society or men for that thinking. We gotta blame ourselves for not accepting ourselves. Women have to be strong enough to like themselves andto accept who they are. So your hips spill over the side of the chair when you sit down now. So what?  Are you happy with those big hips? That’s the question. So you gotta wear glasses now and you used to have 20/20 vision. They do make cute glasses you know? So you aren’t the “typical” beauty. Are you happy with how you look though? If so, that’s all that matters. So you got gray hairs coming in. Embrace those gray hairs or dye them. As long as the choice you make makes you happy.

So I love me and my life right now! I am in such a peaceful place. I might not be spending nights being serenaded by a naked Antonio Sabato Jr. I might not be on the New York Times bestseller list. I might not be invited to all the high society parties in town, but I’m happy. I’m happy being me, writing my books, and doing my thing. So I appreciate all that have followed me on the journey so far. I hope you continue to support me. You can start by checking out my new release The Wild Life. I also invite everyone to sign up for my mailing list to keep up with the exciting things I got going on:
And always remember…when you’re you, everything is worth it!
All by Best,
“What Happens in this house, stays in this house.”

Renee was a woman who seemed to have it all; a wonderful husband, loving family, wonderful church family, great job and the house of her dreams. She and her husband Gary have a very loving relationship. Or do they?

From the outside, Renee’s world gives the appearance of perfection. That is until a mysterious new broker by the name of Stephen Morretti begins working at the same firm with Renee. He is very charismatic and there is definite sexual tension between him and Renee. He will become the catalyst for Renee’s voyage into a world of addiction.

Regina and Joseph Michaels are Renee’s doting parents. They are pillars of the church and looked up to in their community. They were always an integral part of Renee, who was their only child’s life. Or were they? They know the truth behind the veil of lies that Renee has created for her survival.
Aunt Lucinda is not only Renee’s shelter in the storm; she holds the secrets of the past in her memories. She is who Renee turns to when her life starts to unravel; she will become the balm that allows her to begin to heal from the wounds of her present and her past.

Uncle Larry is Lucinda’s husband and her grandfather, Marcus Caine’s, brother. He holds three generations of guilt and will try to make amends to his family for all the pain and grief that his brother has inflicted upon the three generations of women.

Chains of Deception will take you on a journey of family secrets, betrayal, lust and lies. Generational curses and soul ties abound in this story of learning to heal from the wounds of our past and learning to forgive others as well as ourselves for the mistakes of our present.
