This is actually a tough one for me because the first thing that comes to mind is something I have tried to put behind me. In middle school, I discovered a series of books about people on another planet who ride dragons (Anyone who has read the series knows which one I mean by now.) and from then on I wanted to be a dragonrider because for me that meant freedom! I had somewhat of an unhappy childhood, and I read obsessively in an attempt to fill my head with as many good stories as I could – hoping to crowd out all the bad ones.


The POWERFUL blood of JESUS! I was an adult before I truly understood what being “saved”meant – but since that amazing discovery, I have re-dedicated my life to God, and he has changed my heart, my life, my outlook, and my path!


As a writer, you would think it should be easy for me to keep a diary or journal of some sort… and most every writing class you attend advises you to do this very thing. However, the closest thing I have to a diary would be my blog.

Swimming and Escape

I’ve put them together because they both bring the same thing to mind – Dory! I actually found a cute little meme the other day with Dory that said,“Just keep writing.” Of course, I snagged it!

And as for the second word, I can’t hear, see, or say the word “escape” without hearing Dory in my head saying escape – except it sounds more like esscopay.

A Reluctant Assassin

JC Morrows - A Reluctant Assassin CoverHer mission was simple — get close to the Prince, and kill him. . .

Kayden entered the palace under a lie, one designed to get her close to the Prince. On the outside, she may look like a princess but beneath the mask, a killer lays in wait — for the perfect moment.

Dvarius was not ready to take the crown, nor was he ready for a wife . . .

But due to his father’s unexpected death and an archaic law — he must find a bride before he is allowed to take his rightful place on the throne.

And the one woman he wants — just might be the one who is there to kill him…
