I have wonderful news about my latest release SISTERLY! It was awarded as a finalist in the American Fiction Awards in the psychological thriller category!https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074S63RLJ
I can’t express how special this is for me. You see, before my Momma passed away in February she was in the hospital. I would go see her during the day and we would eat lunch together. She was giving the nurses a run for their money and it was pure joy the spunk she still had in her. When I think about it, I can’t help but smile. That being said, during those lunches we talked a lot about me, still writing, and at the time my oldest sister had read Sisterly to her. Of course Momma would critic it back to me. One of those lunches Momma said “You are going to do something with your writings, just keep at it.” Momma was my biggest fan, that is for sure. That is why I can’t help but to think Momma made this award happen for me. I was feeling pretty defeated that day about my writings but Momma always encouraged me. It’s special to have that encouragement and makes me smile, just as Momma did when she believed in me more than I did in myself.

Thank you all for your support as I journey through my writing endeavor’s! This would have never been possible without all of you!
Let me start by saying, Sisterly, MY FIRST psychological thriller came out September 2017. My first shipment of books came 2 days before Irma hit us here in Florida. I wasn’t able to do a big release party, my promoting for Sisterly wasn’t happening. We lost power for several days. After that, I did get to schedule in a small signing, at our local furniture store, thanks to my aunt for arranging it. It was successful, but I still wasn’t giving this new book the attention it deserved.
On my birthday in November, I put the KINDLE up for Free to draw readers in, that also was a success. I had over 200 readers download it. Yet again, another road block came into play.
My father became ill and was admitted into the hospital. Again, Sisterly was pushed to the back burner. He struggled for 2 months in and out of the hospital. We almost lost him and in the process my mother was fighting her own health. At the time nothing in my world mattered but focusing on getting the two of them healthy and back home. My Mother was losing her sight as well as her strength, and I was lucky enough that my oldest sister read her my newest book. I am so thankful my Momma was able to hear my newest book, because she passed Feb. 21, 2018. (I LOVE YOU MOMMA!)
So as you see Sisterly wasn’t my highest priority. Throughout these months, my siblings and I became so much closer. That is something I am extremely grateful for. We made my Mother and Father proud. As a parent it is one of our greatest wishes.
Sisterly now, has so much more meaning to me than ever before. Like Sisterly was supposed to have been written and read.
In dedication to my Siblings, my Father and my beautiful Momma I want to share my newest release for FREE for the next 3 Friday’s!

Floyd Mayweather verses Conor McGregor, we got our money’s worth. Did you get to see that fight? Well, I sure did. My oldest son earlier in the week had ask if we could rent this fight. He wanted to have friends over have some snacks. We decided make it a night for him to hang with his buddies at home. I thought what the heck “teenage boys” home… It was a logical yes. They would be home and not out looking for trouble. So we agreed. The strangest part of it all, is what I got out of this fight…
How many of us that watched the fight woke up from a dream of boxing? Well, I did. This girl right here… I was boxing in my dreams. I was winning too. My opponent was swinging these massive punches at me and at the right moment, I would duck and then jab making direct contact with her jaw. It was very vivid dream. I ducked and jabbed several times not once allowing her to make contact with my face. Yet I felt, if she did make contact, I was okay with it because either way I was going to win.
Sounds like a crazy dream right. Well, as I am ducking and jabbing. I started to notice she, my opponent, was tiring from all the punches she was throwing at me. For a few moments, I began to feel very bad for her. So I stopped ducking, to allow her to get a hit in. She swung and hit me right in the nose. And it was okay that she had hit me. Wow, this was really an adrenaline driven dream. No matter what, I was winning! I felt this in my dream… The really craziest thing is my opponent was me…
So now you know, I learned something about myself, all from watching Mayweather verses McGregor. No matter what I’ll always win the fight. Remember this, when you are in the ring, the toughest opponent is always yourself, and not some unknown fighter.
I know a lot of self-help books say the hardest battle is with the self, or you are your greatest enemy. This is so true, I know this. But there is something about actually watching myself boxing with my opponent (My other self) that made me see, that no matter what, I leave the ring as a winner…
Hi Family, friends and fans!
I set out learning how to self-publish with Sisterly, which took me a little longer to get her out for you to enjoy. I’m only days away from her release on Amazon! Kindle edition will be available first, and paperback will follow. I wanted to give you a peek at the cover.
I’m very excited to have another book for your entertainment! This was a bit different from the Chasing Butterflies Series. It is my first Psychological/ Paranormal/ Thriller. I have always loved a good ghost story that would keep me guessing and now I have created one of my own… Watch for all the links I’ll be sharing so you can get your copy!
Book two Chasing Butterflies in the Mystical Forest (KINDLE EDITION) will be FREE on Amazon.com DECEMBER 5 this Saturday! To download just click the link below.
Chasing Butterflies in the Unseen Universe-COMING SOON!

Book Three is COMING SOON! November 2015 it will be available to the public.(fingers crossed!) I’m really excite about this. I have been asked by many if this is the last in the series. I have to say yes. BUT and that is a big but, there is a lot of area’s that I can branch off from. (So it’s not the last you will ever hear from the characters!) I have a lot of really cool things I am working on. I have a few short stories I plan to publish real soon. I also have a poetry book in the works. I have some really cool holistic approaches to heath care I have been trying out and plan to do a few blog post to share what I think. Book number 3 ! I still can’t believe it! I’ll give you a little peek….
Ripley seeing reflections
“Look at the stars, see their beauty. And in that beauty, see yourself.”-Draya Mooney
The year is 2056 and at eighty-six years old, in a world whispering-nothing is the way it was, I, Ripley Smith Watson, stand closer to the end of my journey. At least it felt like time danced by faster these days. My husband passed the year I turned eighty. That point of my life, my journey had ended. Brightest of days had long since passed. Questions of where I would go at the end of my journey called life, were a constant these days. Would I have a legacy to leave behind for my family, my daughter Lindsey, and my grandchildren? Will I be just a memory for them? Did I teach them well enough? Was Dee right with her belief of transition? Was Lizzy right with the idea of heaven existing? I was never much of a believer in spiritualism or organized religion. Things were just as they were. I never questioned that matter. From years of working for my father at the hardware store and eventually the hardware store became my store, I saw life just as I did hardware. I called my belief Hardware-ism.
You need good tools to build a home or a happy life for that matter. Each tool has its job to help in creating each life and you build your own desired outcome. May it be a home, a child’s tree house and even a bridge to cross over a river.
I considered myself more of an atheist back in my younger days than I am now. Now, I teetered on the fences of belief, the fence I built with my tools…(Unedited version)
COMING SOON!!! Chasing Butterflies in the Unseen Universe
