Madison's Mischief & Mirth

May 23, 2020

In a few weeks, The Awakening of Amelia goes to the editor. While waiting to wrap that one up, I started working on Fated Journey. This will be the sixth book of my Kindred series. Originally, the series was comprised of five books, until a reader suggested a female wa...

We're living in scary times. Those who aren’t considered "essential workers" are urged to stay at home. "Self-quarantine" and "social distancing" are the catch-phrases of the day. This is the new normal. It’s no joking matter and I’m aware of it more than most.

I work a...

I feel like it’s been forever since I sat down to write a blog. The last week of October 2019 my world took a dive (literally) and I’m still struggling to get my life back. I’m making progress since I had surgery to repair a bicep tear and reattach my rotator cuff. I h...

Happy New Year! 2020 has begun, a clean slate to fill with new purpose. While I personally don’t have any big plans for the new year, I do have a goal. I want to apply myself more to everything I do. I want to focus more on my writing. I want to learn more about market...

Yesterday, FJ Roberts came over so we could work on a presentation we’re doing for the Jambalaya Writers Conference in March. As I was making him a cup of Chai tea in the kitchen, I could hear his mutters and grunts in the living room. He’s the Grinch to my Elf and I w...

My mother used to tell me that when I thought things were at their worst, look around. There was always someone suffering more than you. Once again, that has proven true.

The past few months I've been practically off the social media grid. I've still checked in, posting occasionally, but I haven't really participated, interacted, or promoted. My days off from the full time job have been devoted to writing Deuces Wild, book five of The K...

July 18, 2019

It’s been a month since my last blog. I’m not slacking. I just haven’t had anything to write about. All my free time has been spent working on Deuces Wild, the fifth but not final installment of The Kindred series.

I hired a PA to help with promoting my books. As usual,...

Ever have one of those days when you just don’t want to do anything? Today was one of those. To be honest, my first day off from a five-day rotation is usually like that. I manage to do my laundry and little else.

It’s hotter than Hades outside and the A/C is straining...

While I was printing out an article titled 10 Strategies Firefighters Use to Fight Wildfires for my latest WIP, I remembered I had yet to write this blog. Brakes applied, shifting gears.

I think I’m finally getting the hang of juggling my writing, editing, and all thing...
