“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
― Nelson Mandela
In times of change and strife, it is sometimes hard to have courage, to not just face that fear, but conquer it.
Mandela’s quote really resonates with me today as does this one.
The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.”
― Elizabeth Cady Stanton
This is my little bit of bravery this week, sharing a painting I’m working on.

HEAR MY BOOK BABY (AND MORE) ON PATREON
My Patreon site I read and print chapters of unpublished YA novels. THE LAST GODS and SAINT and now ALMOST DEAD.
I also share some writing tips that are also going to be on Teachable as the WRITING CLASS OF AWESOME and send people art.
It’s a super fun place to hang out, learn, read, and see my weirdness in its true form.
And I’m starting up a brand new, adult paranormal set at a Maine campground. You can read the first chapter here.
