Being an author is like climbing a mountain in shoes made of setting cement, and you have to reach the top before the cement goes hard.
Writing a hot love scene. They’re always so daunting, because everyone likes their love scenes differently. Luckily, my characters know just how they want to do it … and ultimately, they’re the ones that need to be satisfied, otherwise, no one’s satisfied!

Sometimes chaos just happens. And you can spend years into the future beating yourself up about the decisions you made, or didn't make; about what went wrong and what the hell you were thinking... And it doesn't and wouldn't have made any difference, because sometimes, chaos just happens. You are not a weaker, lesser or shittier person because for a moment in time you lost your mind to chaos; you are stronger, more able and closer to knowing the goodness of who you are because even after chaos touched you, you kept the most important piece of who you are and walked away, still sane.
