Essie's Roses: A Novel

It’s finally here! After years of research… Years of stalling… Years of waiting… I’m excited to share this story with you. And honored you would choose it to read.

So many things can happen to a writer when they sit down to write. Staring at a blank page or my bright, white computer screen with the little flashing cursor never intimidates me. Just like playing an over-rehearsed song on the piano, my fingers start to move before I even think. That’s how I like it. That’s when I feel inspired; thrilled maybe this story is one I would like to share.
