Welcome to the Pens and Prosecco Blog!


   I absolutely believe that creativity is such a beautiful gift. We must embrace it. Cherish it. Utilize it. And most of all, share it with the world!

On this blog, you will find writing tips&tricks, book reviews and my personal experiences with conferences that helped shape my writing craft and publishing mindset, with an occasional trip or two!

I hope while you’re here, you find a small hint of inspiration that helps you keep chasing whatever goal you have for your writing journey &&& maybe you’ll stumble upon a book you haven’t read yet and decide to finally give it a go!

And to my fellow writers…

If you ever feel like you’re not supposed to be a writer…STOP! Stop the thought, stop what your doing and just remember that little spark in your chest each time you think of your end game goal with your writing. Whether you’re wanting to traditionally publish, self publish or just write to bring you joy-remember why you started. Remember the version of you who believed it was possible to do whatever you set your mind to. Because that version of you is going to be the reason you get there.

“I wish I wrote the way I thought; obsessively, incessantly, with maddening hunger. I’d write to the point of suffocation. I’d write myself into nervous breakdown, manuscripts spiraling out like tentacles into abysmal nothing. And I’d write about you a lot more than I should.” – Benedict Smith
