Hey there, friends. It’s very late at night but I’m writing with a few updates. So first, NaNoWriMo was a bust for me. Well, not totally. I made it to about 44,000 words, so I consider that a victory even if I didn’t cross the finish line. My goal is to make it to 100,000… Continue reading Psst–Long Time, No See!

Usually the library where I work is bustling with students, even late into the night. That… Continue reading Calling All Readers: Announcing the Open Ears, Open Minds Book Club
Just a quick announcement: I rejoined Wattpad.

I figured it’s still a nice place… Continue reading Lee Ann Joins Wattpad… Again…
