No More Secrets Is Coming Soon!

It’s been such a long time since I’ve checked in. Over the last few months, I’ve been working hard, not doing much other than sitting in front of my laptop, finishing No More Secrets, Gwen and Cade’s story. There hasn’t been a lot to say between COVID and the long hours spent shut behind my office door. Luckily, I can report that No More Secrets is off to the editor. We’re still working out the...

Christmas, Decorating Disasters, and Yummy Food!

December is officially in full swing, and so is the holiday season. Things are feeling pretty festive around here in the Beauman household. But, I’ll admit, Christmas decorating started much like most of 2020—it was was a bit of a disaster. Things traditionally get hopping the day after Thanksgiving. Fall décor goes away, and hello, Christmas! My beloved artificial tree that we’ve had for nearly...

Fall is definitely upon us here in New Hampshire. The leaves have turned, taking us ever closer to those long winter months. Luckily, the temperatures are staying relatively warm, which makes me very happy. The cold can stay far, far away for as long as it would like. Work has been busy since the last time I checked in.

Sweatshirts, Hats, Pumpkins, and Apples

Twenty-twenty has really been something, hasn’t it? I often say that this has been the longest, shortest year I’ve ever lived. On the one hand, the days drag, yet somehow, we’re inching our way closer to October. How?! Once again, this month appears to be passing in a blur. I’m happy to report that I finished the first draft of No More Secrets, Gwen and Cade’s story. After completing a draft, I...

Doggie Acupuncture, Mandala Making, Yummy Dipping Sauce

I can’t believe we’re in the last week of August already. Where did this summer go? I’ve been noticing the sun setting a little earlier each day, and I’m not sure how excited I am about the whole idea. I love these bright, cheery, summery days. I don’t mind if they stick around for a while yet. These last few weeks have been zooming by. There’s no shortage of summer insanity around this house....

First Draft, Summer Fun, and Cookies

Summer is in full bloom, and life is busy here in the Beauman household. I’m back to storytelling, which means spending many hours a day tucked upstairs in my office, typing, typing, typing away. Except for when I’m not because this new novel is coming in fits and starts, which tends to be the case with each new book—the dreaded part of first-draft mode. At this point in the process, I’m still...

Cupcakes, Patio Sets, and Summer Fruit Dip

The hot, hazy days of summer are officially here in New Hampshire. I can’t tell you how much I love, love, love walking about while the breeze blows warm and the sun kisses my shoulders. Soon enough, winter will be back to keep us stuck indoors, so I treasure every glorious heat-filled day this season brings. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks resting and relaxing after the craziness of the...

My Day As A TV Movie Extra

Last May, I had a cool opportunity to participate as an extra on one of Apple TV+'s productions. I’m always up for new adventures. As a writer, I’m forever fascinated by people, places, and things. When I get a chance to gain insight into a world entirely unfamiliar to me, I jump at it. Stepping into new experiences and perspectives makes me a better storyteller and all-around human being. So,...

Edits, Face Masks, and Grilled Chicken

Whew, these last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind! It’s funny, though, because some days pass in a blur and others in an eternity. Perhaps you know what I mean? My family and I have been staying close to home, doing our part to flatten the curve, leaving only for necessities. Yet my soul yearns for a day of excitement and energy in the city. Typically, we head into Boston for a change of...
