Out Now – A Mad Woman’s Voice & Issue 2

I am so excited to share with you some of the work I’ve done this year! Today both my poetry collection, and the second issue of my magazine come out.


A Mad Woman’s Voice is just over 40 pages, and filled with the work of over 2 years of writing. This volume explores the act of finding one’s voice and realizing the ability to speak one’s truth. From coming out to exploring the death of loved ones, A Mad Woman’s Voice is a tiny peek into my life.

You can find my book on a couple of platforms.  Find on Goodreads, Payhip, Createspace, Amazon.

Also you can find Cauldron Anthology Issue 2: Sphinx on the website. 



Cauldron Anthology – Submission Date Moved

We, at Cauldron Anthology, are extending the deadline for submissions. This gives us, and our readership more opportunity to receive a larger variety of work.  The editors would love to see more art submissions, and some essays as well.
This month we have some short stories that we can’t wait to share. We love our poetry, but we also love seeing the different directions you have taken the topic of Sphinx.

As the Editor-in-Chief, I am very excited with this theme.  I have been inspired by the research I’ve done.  I like the idea of Sphinxes being watchers and guardians and how that correlates with women in familial households. Whether you are actually a mother who protects her young, or you are the person in your friend group who looks out for everyone, I’m hoping you are inspired by this topic as well.

We look forward to receiving more submissions! The deadline is now July 16th. 

End of February Wrap-Up

I just now realized today was March 1st. I had another post all ready and waiting to be posted when it struck me that I should be writing a wrap-up post instead. *sigh* I’m really not sure where my brain has been these last few days.  But anyway, here’s what I was up to last month!

Reading: I made it to 51 books last month. Which puts me 19 books ahead of my overall goal, but actually 8 books behind what I was hoping to be at by now. Also apparently I forgot to write a goals post for last month…

I read 24 books in February.

Writing: February was a pretty great month for writing. I worked on a lot of different things so here’s the short version.

  •  Personal Writing: This month Grant and I worked on writing one flash fiction story a week, the total ended up being over 3000 words and one of the stories I hope to be publishing soon.   The story is called Miracle and I’m really excited to share it with you all.
  • Magazine: I started my own magazine last month! We’ve already had a few submissions, but we’d love to have more. The deadline for the first episode is coming soon! So please check out the website.
  • Internship: I was also editing for my Patchwork Press internship.  I worked with an up and coming author, her book will hopefully be coming out soon! So stay tuned for more updates on that.


Cauldron Anthology

I’d been throwing around ideas for starting a literary magazine for awhile now. But it wasn’t until I had the help of my friend Sara, that I was finally able to kick my but into gear.

Cauldron Anthology is now officially my magazine! Please go check out the website and share it around.  The first issue theme is Sirens and I just did a blog post about it. We are currently accepting submissions as well as applications for editor positions.
