What is Crystal Clear News?

Whether you’re a fan of my non-fiction personal growth articles, my poetry, or my romance series, there’s something here for you. Crystal Clear News will replace my old newsletter format—and will give the additional option of subscribing for extra content.

Why? Because platforms are ever-changing, and artists like me have to be flexible to survive. This isn’t just a more user-friendly option; it also allows me to provide more diverse and inclusive content—like podcasts.

Why subscribe?

Because you LOVE to read, and supporting your favorite authors is something that matters to you. Plus, you really love being the first to get updates. Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. As my career grows and life changes, this is where you’ll come for the latest information, the biggest news, and whatever other random things I think you’ll love.

You won’t be supporting a multi-million dollar corporation here. Instead, you’ll be supporting me, my two wild and wonderful children, and our new fur baby. You get my best work, and I get to support my family doing what I love best. For that, I am eternally grateful.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox. Book signings, new posts, special sales—you’ll hear about it first!

Book club

I know you love reading—or you wouldn’t be here. So, let’s talk books. I’ll share what I’m reading, what I’ve read, what I loved or could have lived without, and what I’m reading next. Everything books will happen here!

Monthly Q&A

Each month, I’ll host a Q&A. You’ll ask your questions, and I’ll see what I can do to answer them. Just a side note: I’m a former therapist, which means I can’t give therapeutic advice (and really, really don’t want to), but I’m happy to talk more in-depth about my work or what I’m reading or whatever else comes up.

WIP Updates

Just to be clear, that’s WIP, not WAP. lol I’m happy to share information about my work-in-progress (insomuch as I can without spoilers). Quirky research topics, writer’s life insights, and other news about my latest projects will be available to you.


Just to mix things up, I’ll be throwing in a podcast. Most of them will be available only at the subscriber level. In these, I’ll read articles to give you an audio version to listen to on-the-go. I may also talk about any of the above topics—books, my current WIP, and any relevant news.

About Me

I’m a former therapist turned author. I’m the author of the Heart of Madison series and a poetry book entitled My Words Are Whiskey. My work has been featured on Medium, Elephant Journal, Elite Daily, and The Good Men Project. When I’m not writing for Medium and working on my next book, you can find me traveling, paddle boarding, cycling, throwing axes badly but with terrifying enthusiasm, hiking, doing yoga, or curled up with my nose in a book in Madison, Georgia where I live with my two wild and wonderful children.
