The Salvaged is my first solo published work is now available on the Kindle app at Amazon. It's just itty bitty at 26 pages, but it is absolutely complete and I am warm and cozy with fulfilled joy.
Don’t pole vault over mouse turds. Just pick it up and throw it away. Yes, it’s gross. Just grab a tissue and pick it up. You don’t need to call your friends over to see it. Why? Oh great, now you are all standing around talking about how revolting it is. That was unnecessary. Do you feel better? You still need to clean it up, does it help having your friends around telling you how gross it is? If they were really your friends they would help you. Yes everyone is leaving. They don’t want to talk about your crap [...]
You are worthy of love and of all good things. Why do I say this? Because you are. We all are. Not one more than the other. We are all the same in our worth.

In a world where we are stuck in awful jobs, relationships, and financial instability, there is an abundance of [...]
Let's talk about Love. Love is my home base. It's where I gain my inspiration from and it's where I go back to when I need answers. So, what do you love? Not who, but what? Think of things you love enough that when you think of it do you feel that squishy warm love feeling inside? For example; I have a beautiful pair of Louboutin ankle boots hanging on my vision board in front of me right now. Every time I sit and stare at them I get an internal squeal of joy that goes through my body and [...]
