Hey, friend. Can we get real a minute?

Life can be downright hard, can’t it? Sometimes we just need to escape from the chaos of life. 

My go-to when I want to unwind is a hope-filled novel on a sunny, sandy beach. When I can’t make it to the oceanfront, my bedroom or backyard will suffice. Just give me all the books! Well . . . and chocolate (since we’re being real).

What about you?

If you would love a few—or a thousand—moments of escape to get lost in stories that infuse your soul with hope, then you’ve come to the right place.

My blog, All Things Bookish, focuses on interviews with Christian authors who write and publish hope-filled novels that entertain and transform lives. My dream is to become one of those authors.

You can find out more about my passion and motivation HERE.
