Hello, my lovely readers! I hope that everyone has been having a wonderful month of April! The meadow in front of my house has been flourishing in the warm weather of spring, and I have been enjoying the return of green grass and wildflowers. There are many days when I find that my college work seems to be taking over my schedule. It can be hard to find the time to unplug from the stress of student life; however, it is very important to take a moment to breathe in the fresh air of nature. In a world that dances in a haze of faded colors, we must always remember to take a walk in the forest. As I drive myself mad with the terrifying thought of my first college presentation, my mind finds solitude on a few of the local hiking trails. Between the bustle of schoolwork and my author career, I'm starting to feel a bit like Alice in Wonderland.
I know that many of you have been anxiously awaiting the sequel to Fire & Ice: The Elementals. I'm happy to tell you that the writing process has been going smooth and I will be releasing more information in the month of July. Below is a short playlist of a few songs that I listen to when I am writing the second book in the Fire & Ice series.
