I’m Darlene. I create content with the hope of making the world a better place one connection at a time.
I am an authorpreneur, associate editor/journalist, photographer and workshop guru. I’m also one of the few people that can say she has a poem in space (thanks, NASA)!
My goal is to write 100 books that entertain, enlighten and enrich the lives of my readers. Books #17 and #18 are in the works!
Why the heck would anyone be crazy enough to want to do this?
When I was little, I was the geeky girl who always checked out books, helped others with books, and always had a stack or two of books around. Books have helped me through many difficult times in my life. I know they can lift us out of our lives and make us reach for something bigger than ourselves. The best books are ones that we want to read over and over…we make friends with characters.
Now I create stories to entertain and encourage my readers. I hope you find a new friend or two among my characters.
Writing is fun. Not writing is chaos. I breathe in by reading and exhale by writing. I’m still a certified Book Dragon!
One of my favorite characters I created is Julia, aka. the Zombie Slayer. She says we read books to prepare for what could happen…and hope that it doesn’t.
Grab a beverage of your choice and pull up a chair! I hope you enjoy what I write.
I hope you all enjoy this corner of the internet dedicated to words, love, and light!
Book #15, Gliese: 667 is available!
Book #17, The Divantinum Project: Wastling is finally coming out in November 2021. It was slated for last year, but things happened and now it’s out this year.
I am working on book #18, End Game!
