I have been MIA for a while and have been hiding a secret! The past few months and years have been spent traveling places trying to hear stories- stories of people who moved and made America their home. I have been writing for years now- blogging and freelancing as a writer. My friends have always urged me to write a book, yet I always shrugged it off. In 2013, I decided to begin my writing journey into becoming an author.
While I have continued to write, I haven’t been blogging as much because I was busy working the publishing maze. After four years since that first story, I finally had a publishing contract. In 2017, I finally signed my first book contract with Motivational Press. While my book is far from being released, I just reached a major milestone and a dream come true for any author- my book cover with my name on it.
Everyone who has followed me blog through the years have supported my journey as a writer by liking my posts, commenting on my pictures, etc. As a thank you for this endless support, here’s the first look of my book cover which will be released in 2018. Please continue to support my writing journey, and follow us on our social media for updates on the book, release date, event tours etc.
Every relationship is the beginning of a new journey. At fourteen years of age, I wanted to begin a journey to adopt a baby. I knew then that it would be the greatest journeys I would embark on. I never did then, but the desire continued to grow with me until three years back when my husband and I signed on the dotted lines to begin our adoption journey. This past month I traveled to Seychelles and India with my husband for a month. This adventure signaled my life coming full circle. While adoption held my heart strings at fourteen, Seychelles tickled my imagination just as much. I remember watching Miss World/Universe on TV in India and seeing the amazing beauty of Seychelles. I knew then if there was one place on earth I could visit, I would choose Seychelles. It was a week in paradise and the perfect end to being just the two of us.
After a week in paradise, my husband and I traveled to India. India is and will always be home. There is a serenity and peace that India fills me with. No matter where I go or where my address might reside, India is home. But this trip was even more special. After years of wondering who she is, or what she might look like, we found our new travel buddy in our 11 month old daughter, M. She is feisty, adventurous and crazy just like us. And thus began a new journey. We are now a crazy travel foursome, my husband, Zed our puppy, M and I. Stay tuned for our adventures in Seychelles and India in the coming weeks.
