Stories about women searching for truth in life and love

my definition of happiness: a cup of coffee and a good book
I am a writer of Women's Fiction and of stories about women searching for truth in life and love. I am currently working on revisions of my first novel in preparation for submission to publishers, and in the meantime, I blog about my journey toward a well-balanced life and a career in publishing--my struggles and successes along the way. Sometimes I post short fiction and some words of encouragement in the same way I encourage my characters--to grow, find balance, strive for success (however you define success), and search for happiness. No, more than happiness--genuine passion for a full life.
