Welcome to the waiting room of my writing journey, a space where imagination meets the written word. Here, you’ll find a window into my current projects—a journey across genres that reflects my passion for storytelling. I’m currently weaving the narratives of two distinct works: a nonfiction exploration of home renovation and personal growth, and a captivating modern fantasy/fairytale romance novel.
Though vastly different in many ways, both projects are intricately linked by a common thread: my belief that homes are the canvas for which we and our families paint our lives with meaning. This blend of personal home experiences and love for immersive storytelling forms the heart of my writing endeavors. Join me as I bring these diverse stories to life, each a testament to the beauty of creating spaces and narratives that resonate deeply.
“Home Goals” is a comprehensive guide for anyone embarking on the journey of home renovation. It intertwines the personal experiences in renovating a 1980s Massachusetts colonial with practical, actionable advice.
The book offers a unique renovating goal-setting process, over 20 lessons on budgeting, timelines, color choices, and finding your decorating style, enriched with personal anecdotes. It also features 19 inspiring room-by-room project profiles.
This guide aims to demystify the renovation process, empowering readers to create homes that are meaningful and tailored to their families’ needs. It’s a valuable resource for homeowners and an appealing project for agents and publishers in the home and lifestyle genre.
