Accomplishment! ONCE AGAIN is now available!

There’s something about accomplishing a goal that you set for yourself that is satisfying in a way no other accomplishment is.  I felt it when I completed both semesters of Freshman college English as a senior in high school… with an “A”, no less.  I felt it when gave birth to my first child… a 10 pound 2 ounce baby boy… withOUT a C-section.  And I feel that same sense of accomplishment today.

At 11 years old I decided I wanted to be a writer.  At age 29, I decided it was time to start making that dream happen. Today, almost 9 years later, my first novel ONCE AGAIN, is available in eBook format at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords

It’s been a long journey of studying, learning, and practicing the craft of writing… networking with other writers… and making writing a priority in my full, busy life.  Several years ago I found my “voice” in young adult fiction, and the inspiration for ONCE AGAIN was born.  And this isn’t the end of the journey.  It’s just the next step.  But it feels good to finally get here, to be able to take the next step.

So, it’s with great joy that I introduce to you Layla Bradford and Lucas Ellis, the main characters of ONCE AGAIN. Just like me, they take a journey, and over the course of their story they learn a lot about themselves.  I hope you’ll love them as much as I do.

ONCE AGAIN - available at:

The print version of ONCE AGAIN will be available soon from Amazon.

Thanks for coming along with me on this journey.  And stay tuned… there’s more to come!  I'm nowhere near finished!


  1. I'm tickled to death for you!!! I know that ONCE AGAIN is going to be a hit.
    I've read it so I know it will be.
    It has wonderful characters, and attention catching suspense sequences and a really good HEA at the end.

    When you come to visit me, I want you to teach me about how to give my blog a facelift.
    You are so good at this.

  3. Congrats Amy! I know it's going to do well and I think I know what I'm doing this weekend! ;)

  4. Thanks Taryn! Love the encouragement KYRW is to all of us!

  5. Congrats, Amy! I bought it at Amazon. This will be my first YA, but I've enjoyed the Six Sentence Sunday snippets! I wish you lots of success. Yes, publishing a book IS very much like having a baby. Emotional and thrilling (and just a wee bit painful--although my biggest baby was 8 lbs 2 oz--and without anything stronger than Demerol).
