Eyes Never Lie Synopsis: A ruthless killer. A retiring detective. A game of life and death. After thirty years on the force, Detective Casey Norris has finally accepted that the time has come for him to retire. His body is slowing down, his mind can’t be far behind and he won’t allow either to decide his fate. He is ready to go out on his terms. But, before it can be made official, a killer emerges from the darkness with a mission. A mission that must be carried out through blood and death. A mission that will not be complete until the killer has the thing they want the most; the death of Casey Norris. Norris has never been a step behind, but as he and his team of detectives work to stop the rising body count, the murders begin hitting too close to home. It becomes evident that the killing will not stop until he or the killer is dead. Will he be able to protect those closest to him? Or has he finally met the monster he cannot stop?

Career and Writing Discussion at Otterbein University

As I prepare to present to a group of 1st year students, at Otterbein next week, I always ask myself, who am I? For a while I was stuck on this statement. Only thinking about who I actually am and not what I represent. The truth of the matter is what I represent is also a part of who I am. So when I think about this statement now…Who am I? Well, I’m a mother, author, Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor, Artist, Event Planner, and Owner. And I love 💕 it! I am something and at the same time I am nothing. I am wise and at the same time I am foolish. I am certain and at the same time I am ambivalent. I am curious and at the same time I am uninterested. I am who I am, where I am, and when I need it most.

So next week, I have the pleasure of presenting career and #writing information to a group of collegiate students who are first year students at Otterbein. I love things like this because I am able to provide guidance to these individuals with the hope of helping them pursue their dreams and go after what they really want in life. No one said it would be easy; however, with hard work and determination, anything can happen. You just have to be willing to make it happen.

African American Read-In Event at Otterbein University

African American Read In

On Tuesday, February 8th at 6 pm, I will participate in the African American Read In event at Otterbein University alongside Rayshawn Wilson. I am truly grateful for opportunities like this. If you would have asked me in undergraduate school if I saw myself public speaking in the future, the answer would have been to no. I was extremely afraid to talk around others and I often forgot my lines. I sometimes stuttered as well.

As time progressed, so did my presentation skills. I have presented to college students, attended numerous authors events, and have been given a great amount of time to increase my confidence in presenting.

Hoping you all with join me in this Zoom conversation about publishing, writing, authorship, and upcoming events.
