My Latest Book Is Now Available

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned,

so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”—Joseph Campbell

Instead of sharing a blog this week, I’m sending you the first chapter of my latest novel, The Retreat, the second book in The Awakening Series. You can purchase The Retreat through Roundabout Books, Newport Market, Dudley’s Bookshop Café, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. eBooks are also available. Here’s a quick preview …

Marlee, Juliette, Sophia, and Annie—the four characters from The Invitation—travel to Costa Rica where they meet Maggie Carr. This young woman is also attending the holistic retreat, “Elevar.” But, instead of going with friends, Maggie’s all by herself … searching for answers after the unexpected death of her mother. Through a myriad of workshops, adventures, and one-on-one sessions with healers, these five women come face to face with Joseph Campbell’s message, propelling each on a journey to unearth her life purpose. Along the way, they create unbreakable bonds, supporting one another to step forward on their soul’s path.

Writing this book encouraged me to both expand my perspectives and embrace unconventional possibilities. No doubt, I’ve grown, not only as a writer, but also as a human. This process urged me to recognize my limiting beliefs as well as realize how unforeseen opportunities often appear when we least expect them. Yet, if we’re able to let go of our expectations, trust in the unknown, and allow without trying to control, what occurs often exceeds our wildest dreams.

A special thank you to my Advanced Readers. I’m humbled by your commitment, love, and support!

Enjoy Chapter 1 …
