What is femenine energy and how to connect with it
Feminine energy comes from the heart.
It is not an energy based on gender, it is open, free and it moves with the flow of life.
The feminine energy is a strong creative force that can be expressed in many ways such as writing, dancing, painting, singing and/or dreaming of new ideas. Let it flow without judgment to yourself and others.
Allow yourself to feel, and recharge doing the things you love, or even, not doing anything at all. Listen to music, read a ...

We are all creative artists!
Creativity is not reserved only for the chosen ones or the geniuses. It is not a lightning bolt that comes out of nowhere and strikes you with inspiration.
It is a skill we are all born with, and can develop it even more and more on a daily basis.
Our creative mind is working constantly, from deciding how to put together dinner leftovers and create a new meal from that, to what we will wear that day, to painting a picture or writing a book.
The first t...

How to create passion in our everyday life
I LOVE passion! It is one of my favorite emotions that gets that fire inside of me burning!
As we have learned from our heroines in books, and in my previous blog, How to incorporate Romantic living into our life, we first have to become who we truly are before being able to attract or give to our partner.
I want to dive deeper into the third point we touched in that post which was: Seek for passion and love in what you do

Hello dear friend,
As you might know I am very passionate about autism awareness since I have am autistic son, and today I bring you a story that filled my heart with joy. I wrote my middle grade series Risho & Kaia based on my children in the hope that adults, teachers and children better understand what autism is. By the reader putting themselves in the main character’s shoes, it is a fun and engaging way of creating empathy for the character and learning mo...

Ways to incorporate Romantic living into your life
What is Romantic Living?
Romantic living is inspired by Romanticism in literature. It sees beauty in the world, ourselves and others!
I personally believe we are in a period of time where, especially women, have taken this era and made it our own, personalized, and brought into our daily lives.
I am not talking about ways of being romantic, (lowercase “r”) which is an “expression of love and dedication in a ...
5 things I've learned from writing romance novels
Hi dear friend,
Today I would love to share with you some of the things I have learned while reading and writing romance novels.
1.-We all have our own paths with our own personal struggles:
Every novel that you read, the character needs to go through some sort of transformation, a character arc. Even though we may think that the girl next door might have it all compared to ourselves, we realize that even though she may not have the same struggles as...
5 reasons we benefit from reading romance novels
Not sure if reading a romance novel is right for you? Here are five benefits I find when reading or writing a romance novel.
1- It is usually written by women for women, so the reader can very commonly identify and find a voice, inspiration and empowerment in the character’s journey.
2.- It is a celebration of love and hope. As a romance reader you know that it will end in a HEA or a HFN bringing hope to the reader, knowing love is possible no matter the color of ...

Writer's life is sometimes messy
This week I trudge fiercely into the fun but also scary place of brainstorming for my next romance novel!
My brain is a mess as is my notebook! Full of bits and pieces, scenes here and there, and characters that visit me in the middle of the night with something witty they have said to the protagonist and I need to get up and write it down (which would be the smart thing to do…) Or, I think I am a genius and will remember it all by morning (which never hap...
Who is Nikki Evans?
Who is Nikki Evans?
I wanted to write about Nikki before I had any idea what the book would be about. I knew who she was perfectly well, her fears and the dialogue going on inside her head.
As a woman I understood how the “simple and superficial” things can mess up with your self-esteem.
The visible scar on Nikki’s shoulder due to the fire that killed her parents and burned down her house is a constant reminder of the person she also lost in that...

- Talking and learning the meaning of words.
- Making friends or fitting in.

- Dealing with loud noises, bright lights or crowds.
Kids might also...
The importance of creativity
Creativity, as I see it, is an important skill for any child and adult to have, as it is helpful throughout our lives. It is not only used or saved for “artistic people” but it is used in our daily lives. All children are born creative, we can see this in the way a child easily plays with toys or peers using their imagination without any sort of self-doubt.
But why is creativity so important:
It is a process of self-expression. Creative experiences can help childr...
Back to School!
Back to school!
Back to school can be exciting, but can also be mixed with so many different emotions! Maybe a little bit of sadness that summer is over, or anxiousness of what the school year may bring both academically and emotionally. Some kids adapt easily, while others might take longer, especially if moving to a new school.
One of my favourite ways as a teacher and parent to communicate with a child without them feeling pressured or in the spotlight, allowing us to see ...
