My solution? Why not write a book? So, I did. I wrote my first novel, after making a list of my favorite books, for as long as I can remember. Then focused on what spoke the most to me. I grew up with Nancy Drew. I read hundreds of those books, and still reread them to this day. I also read much of Agatha Christie... Mystery, history, thrillers, suspense...I love it all!
And through the process of creating my first novel, I fell in love with the process of writing. And while my first novel still needs work, I plan to hone my craft here on this blog :) The Paisley Butterfly's short stories and poetry will be posted here, under the category Penned. Hope you enjoy!

The Secrets Held Within ~ Part 1: 26 Chapters, Part 2: To come
There is no time like the present to take a hiatus from life. After Ivy’s life proved to be nothing as she thought, recurring dreams become a constant burden upon her already fragile emotional state. In an effort to sort herself out and make sense of a dream that refuses to part her mind, she ventures out on a soul searching excursion to a secluded cabin in a quaint small village, known for its tourist attractions of antique shops and homemade boutiques. Within the first day of her arrival, she befriends the sheriff and settles into the cozy cabin. At the end of touring the cabin, she is greeted with a locked room in the attic. Confused by this, she becomes instantly obsessed with learning what secrets lie on the other side of the door. As the truth of the locked room becomes tangible, someone intent on furthering her deteriorating mind counteracts her efforts.
