I’ve been published in two co-authored books, I’ve written hundreds and hundreds of freelance copy, content, blogs (you name it)! And in the background, there I was, just introspectively jotting down things that made me smile. Things that flowed through my hands. Things I didn’t have to think about. Just for me.
I wrote for a co-authored book and I was even the leader/writing coach for a second. In fact, the entire concept of the second co-authored book was created by me. I knew going into those projects that I wasn’t going to fulfill the inner desire of authorship, but that it would be more like schooling or an internship. I knew that joining those projects would get my feet wet. The publishing industry is elusive… much like the recording industry, the art industry, the influencer industry (remember when it all started with blogging and no one would share how they were making an income with it?), and all other creative industries. I’m thankful for the opportunity to have learned more about publishing, becoming an author, and what it all takes. Those experiences were an important first step.
Well since then, as you can imagine, I’ve been procrastinating (or fearful, but aren’t they the same?) and not doing the thing I most wanted. I wanted to write and publish books on my own.
So here I am!
My first co-authored book was published in 2019, my second in 2020, and my first debut poetry book is about to be published on May 15th, 2021. I think I’m seeing a pattern here. Just when I think I haven’t been firmly pursuing my goals, I read that sentence back and see delight in my steps. I’m doing the things!
So I’d like to formally introduce you to SHE MADE WAVES: to live a life of delight
This is a book of poetry written from 2019 to early 2020 (yep, before it all happened). When I compiled everything, I saw a pattern.. a story… and outline. I actually saw a journey.
She Made Waves is a poetry journey to live a life of delight through mindfulness, lessons, acceptance, letting go, desire, and being.
I am equally excited and scared. I have no idea what May 15th and beyond will bring, but I’m grateful for it. I won’t know anything and will remain in a fearful state unless I try. So here I go.
If you’ve read this far, thank you! Your attention and time mean a lot. If you are interested in helping me get to a best-seller list (every single purchase counts – trust me), you can click here to sign up and find out when the pre-sale launches (pssst, it’s May 1st!).

If you haven’t noticed, I don’t blog a lot but I do like to update with some poetry here and there. I mostly open up and share to my email subscription readers. They are my Wild Readers. They know what’s going on and when I have new updates. If you’d like to become one, I’d love for you to follow along.
Thank you again. Thank you for reading. Thank you for taking time out of your day. Thank you for witnessing this new big step of mine.
