New Children’s Book, Princess Genevieve: The Hero with Girl Power, Coming in 2020

2019: My Year of Self-Care

I was pretty selfish in 2019 and I mean that in the best way possible. Self-care was a big focus. If there’s anything I’ve learned as a book publicist for life coaches, it’s that we must be the best version of ourselves in order to properly care for our families and also to achieve our…

Dining Out with Kids

Family fun: take your kids to dinner where they barely eat anything except for the french fries.

Princess Genevieve Update

I’ve been reading drafts of @princessgenevievebook to my girl throughout my writing process. She tries to memorize the words so she can pretend she is reading along with me. It’s really cute. But I keep editing and the words keep changing on her! Now that I added a pop star line, Genevieve requested that I…
