If I would have had the time I would have prepared quite a bit of news, but alas time slipped away from me, just as my grandfather did this past month. While the past 30 days have been quite emotional, those feelings were mixed. There was sadness blended with happiness, joy combined with grief and celebration jumbled together with stress.


Among the best news was the fact that the “Hamilton Troll Cookbook” AND my Christian novel “The Painting” both won First Place Awards for Best Books in those categories through the Texas Association of Authors!

National Poetry Month

While more information about that exciting news will be coming soon, there are also a ton of other items I want to get to this month, one of which is it being National Poetry Month and those who know me, KNOW how much I love poetry!

God Moments

Also coming up this month, I want to share some of the most amazing God moments I’ve had over the course of this journey. Signs and messages from beyond that will leave a smile on your face that spreads from ear to ear.

There are a ton of big things about to happen and as soon as I can I want to share these with you, my readers, friends and fans. So keep your eyes peeled.
