So when her co-worker invites her to a coffee house for an open mic night, she convinces herself to go. Because although she’d rather stay home where it’s safe, she’s come to realize that if there is any hope for even a shadow of her picture-perfect future to come to pass, she is going to have to start making some changes even if it means getting hurt. Again.
And sometimes, as Maddison is soon to discover, the best life is actually what happens after all of your plans have come crashing down. However, choosing to let go and actually doing so is the constant struggle she faces. But just when she thinks she’s back on the right path to achieving her optimum goals, life comes along and once again scatters her Mental Notes.
About the author
Describing yourself to a stranger with only words is a tricky task because I know what I hope people think of me, so we'll go with that. I'm a Texas girl (which doesn't mean I own a horse, cowboy hat, or even boots that aren't from a regular shoe store) who loves to love. I love my husband, my kids, and my friends. I love to sing and be silly--much to my husband's displeasure at times.
And I also love summer nights, lattes any time of the day, food with more calories than my suggested daily limit, and sugar. But that kind of love is way smaller than the other list above.
I discovered I also loved to read at the age of 32 and not long after, started to write my first novel. Before the novel, I had my hand in writing several two-act plays from 2005-2009.
So there you go--me in 160 words.
