#selfpublished #author Defies All Odds With TWO #USAToday #Bestsellers in ONE WEEK!

When I left my publisher and decided to self publish, it was when self publishing had (and I mean HAD) a stigma to it.
I did my research! I knew some of my colleagues would turn up their noses or snicker under their breath, but writers weren't who I wanted to buy my self published novels! It's YOU, my readers!!  I did the unthinkable! I STARTED TO DO THINGS TO REACH YOU! MY READERS!

#Fantasy #book Winner in the eFestival of Words

I'm so excited to announce A CHARMING CRIME has won the eFestival of Words in the Fantasy and Urban category.

This is such an honor because it is reader nominated. I have no idea who nominated me, but I'm so honored and thrilled to have won. I love writing The Magical Cures Mystery Series. There is so much fun in the magical town and June Heal is a pleasure to write!

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!

Whispering Falls has a lot of secrets. From talking snow globes to whispering animals not to mention a few sprinkles of fairy dust, June realizes Whispering Falls is more magical than she thought. . .literally.

Magic stirs...
