In July 2017, I edited my first blog into a book and released MY ADVENTURES AS AN EXPAT IN BELGIUM. I thought it was going to be an easy project and I was excited to preserve that history for my family. We learned a lot about our American culture by viewing it from afar and I wanted to share that with others.
But this book was technical and emotional challenge. It wasn't easy to take words I'd written for a blog and edit them into a book. Also, my heart broke into a thousand pieces all over again with this project. From an alopecia diagnosis for our son to the loss of my father-in-law, life didn't always care that we were expats. The hardest part about living in Belgium, was having to come back.
MONSTERS OF THE MIDWEST, Adventure Publications, 2016, is a collection of stories inspired by true monster sightings throughout the midwest. My co-author, Jessica Freeburg and I had so much fun working on this together! We also had the chance to visit with a lot of paranormal podcasts, check out my press page for a link to all of our appearances!
