Never pay for a review

Though I’ve touched on this subject before on my blog I think it warrants repeating. I will never pay someone to read and review one of my books. Period! Most paid reviewers give glowing reviews on the books they read even if the book is not up to par. Why? Because they want your money and repeat business. Think about it. Would you pay someone a second…

Poem from A New Orchid Myth by Helene Pilibosian


She insisted on the value                            

of his bringing the lamp

made of the bright lights

emanating from burning the oil

fit for the literary campaign.

The lascivious and the lame

had sputtered their claim to luck,

surrendered it in fact

to a fiction of empathy

grounded on a story of pluck.


He brought the lamp

and lit her subsequence

with the banter…

New Historical Romance - Wilderness Bride

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing a sneak peek at my new historical romance, Wilderness Bride. This traditional historical is set in the wilds of the Michigan Territory in 1823. The book was a lot of fun to write and is an exciting blend of adventure and tender romance.

I like to bring my historical romances “out of the history books” and into the everyday lives of my characters. My stories aren’t weighted down with heavy discussions about politics or war. Instead, I…

Poem: Defeat the Giants

Use the correct perspective,

based on God’s spiritual view-

for there will be Goliaths,

standing defiantly before you.

Anyone can be strong, when leaning

on his relationship with Christ.

Run into the battle speaking…

against the hostile opposition,

when the situation appears grim.

Acknowledge your sacred covenant

and your divine identity in Him!

Though the enemy comes against you,

your weakness in the…
