Created for Necessity, Employed for Passion

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"

Let's build a world. Explore what we believe by writing. In many ways my characters’ experiences with fate, destiny and free-will mirror my own. What is up to us and what isn’t? It’s one of the great questions of the human experience, I think. But no matter what is for us to control, we must own the identity. You’re a writer if you write. Period. Writing is a lovely way to spend one’s time. Enjoy it. And I hope you enjoy my writing here.

I sold my first book!

Hi guys!

So this is my first time blogging at this new address (go easy on me) but I just wanted to say, um, I SOLD MY FIRST BOOK! Ok, that was more like screaming, but COME ON!

It was a crazy week that culminated in the fabulous folks at Simon and Schuster giving me a book deal. I still can't quite believe it and expect I will probably have to convince myself little by little as time goes on. I am so ready to get started and so excited to keep you all posted on the publishing process. More soon!




  1. YAY! YAY! YAY!
    Now that it's on your blog, that makes it more official, right??

    Love you!!!

  2. So, happy for your Rebecca! I look forward to reading about your progress. Can you tell us a little bit more about the book and the deal?
