Prompt Me Horror & Thriller

This past March I attended my first convention as a vendor and asked for suggestions as to what my next topic should be—the winner? Horror. This book is packed full of a large variety of styles of prompts, not just traditional story starters.

I have included one of the story helping generators I created for the workbook below (and a photo prompt). So dive in and have some fun writing some creepy stories just in time for Halloween!

New Release! Prompt Me Romance

I’m super excited to announce the release of Prompt Me Romance. This creative writing workbook and journal is clean enough for teens but sophisticated enough for adults.

Prompt Me Again: Creative Writing Workbook & Journal

It is my pleasure to announce the newest edition of the PROMPT ME SERIES. Woo hoo!

Prompt Me Again is full of new prompts and ideas to get (and keep) you writing.

I had a ton of fun taking all the new pictures. I went so far as getting into a pool fully clothed (with my friend, Jenn) and capturing some eery images. I also found myself wading through waist-high grass (in flip-flops) while getting eaten by mosquitos to nab the perfect sunset pic. And…it was all worth it.

As an aside, both of my editors faves are the “Fairy Tale Mash Up” and the “Facial Expression” reference chart. Regardless, there is something for everyone in the book.


Here is a glimpse of what you get in this new installment.

Clean enough for teens and sophisticated enough for adults.

New Release! Prompt Me Sci-Fi & Fantasy: Workbook & Journal

I am so pleased to announce the release of the third installment of the Prompt Me Series! Prompt Me Sci-Fi & Fantasy is now available on Amazon or any other online retailer. Creating this book has been a blast, the pictures alone were an adventure. My daughter and I had fun amongst the redwoods for the fantasy based pic below. Others had me flat on my belly trying to capture the strange beauty of giant sand dunes. But pictures aren’t the only type of prompt in this workbook. Trust me when I say, there’s something for every type of writer. Enjoy!

This gives you a glimpse at the variety of pages in this book.
