"Cammarata's action packed storytelling never lets up. The urgency of the pacing draws the reader into Maecha's world quickly, but it is the fierceness of her loyalty and love that defines the narrative. Well-developed details ground the magical elements and make a world where people time travel in their dreams and are friends with gods believable. Jumping from the ancient past to modern day is at first jarring, but as the characters' lives weave together, their complicated relationships deepen the meaning of the story and give it a powerful sense of destiny fulfilled.

The life of a writer is difficult as you need discipline and lots of time to write, write, and write some more. It’s my dream to be a full-time writer and travel around the country visiting bookstores for signings and speaking to audiences about my books and the amazing magic of words.
As an author-publisher, meaning that I have my own publishing company and publish my books through that venue, not only do I write the books, but I have to hire an editor, proofreader, graphic designer, as well as take care of printing, marketing, and publicity. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for writing, especially when I also run a non-profit, have a family and two crazy dogs. But this is what I want to do and I hope that eventually I’ll find a small or traditional publisher to print my books.
I know so many people who would love to write or publish their own books and with technology and social media, you can be successful. I’ve decided to write this blog as a peek into my writing world, to support blooming or experienced writers and to offer advice and writing prompts for any who wish to pursue this fantastic way of life.
I welcome comments, questions, or just a quick hello and I promise to keep you up to date on my writing.
I haven’t named my blog yet and would love some suggestions as all the ones I have thought of are taken.
