Mom Life: Episode Two


My children have somehow forgotten that today is Saturday, and as such they should have slept in, thus allowing me to sleep in. At the same time, I have forgotten that I do, in fact, have four children who do not follow the 'Saturday-sleep-in' rule, and stayed up until three in the morning devouring the book Dirty English by Ilsa Madden-Mills (ah-ma-zing book. Read it. I haven't been forced to finish a book in one sitting just by its pure awesomeness in a long, long time). So needless to say this morning was 'fun'. And by fun I mean I'm surprised my children are still alive.

If you're going to sneak, don't argue while doing it.

Mom Life: Episode One

I wear many hats when it comes to life. I'm an author, graphic designer, PA, artist, but most importantly I'm a single mother of four.

As a single mom I know first hand the stress of managing four kids all seven years of age and under. As a SAHWM (stay at home working mom), I also know first hand the insanity that is trying to run multiple businesses while the youngest two are at home with me all. the. time. And it is insanity. Utterly complete insanity with no end in sight, but it's also a sh*t ton of fun.

My children are adorable spawns of Satan.

Embracing The Darkness: The Truth Behind My Dark Depression

It becomes hard to speak. When your mind rebels against you, making you feel unsafe within your own body, the ability to cry out becomes smothered by darkness. And it is darkness, a complete void of any light, happiness, or hope, to where your mere existence (if you can even call it that) brings you more pain than any evil you may have faced in the world.

Center Ring: A Dark Circus Novel Sneak Peek

I'm so excited about my upcoming release, Center Ring: A Dark Circus Novel, that I just have to share some of it with you.

Center Ring is a dark paranormal fantasy with elements that are only suitable for those 17 years of age and older, so please no kids! I don't want to give them nightmares!

I've had a lot of fun writing this, and breaking into my even darker side. With those of you familiar with my previous works you already know I like my stories dark, so I can only imagine your shock when I show you how dark I can be!

Well, without further ado or continued babbling, here is the first two chapters of Center Ring (along with the cover and the blurb). I hope you enjoy!

Interview with Author Rachael Brownell

AND review of Holding On, Holding On Book One

Recently I had the utter pleasure of 'sitting' down on facebook (aka sitting in our pajama's miles away from each other with only the interwebs to connect us) with Rachael for an interactive interview discussing how her life effected her books, and vice versa along with what she has in store for us next!

When They Crown Comes Off

I'm known as the Confetti Queen. The simplest explanation I can for why I'm named such is because I believe in positivity and spreading love and hope to others, thus why I throw my confetti.

There comes a time though, when I have to remove my crown and become the 'not-so-nice' Desiree. These times, thankfully, are few and far between but after this morning the crown is off.

I could not be more excited to feature this new release! Who hasn't rocked out to the music of Smash Mouth?! Now you can go behind the music with a band that carried the spirit of a generation in Walkin' on the Sun; The Official Smash Mouth Biography.

Home Is Where The Heart Is

I haven't written a blog post since December. I know that I should have kept everyone up-to-date on everything that's been happening, but at times it was too hard to even keep my mind together to form a single coherent thought to express to all of you.

But there's one thing I want to tell you all, and that's this.

I'm safe.
