Hi! I’m Colette, a writer, actress, pop culture nerd, wine lover, amateur foodie cook, fitness neophyte + Beachbody coach, voracious reader, Disney fanatic, party host, ordained wedding officiant, and life-long academic.

In 2018, I left the private sector to follow my dream and passion of writing full time. My first novel is in process, and I publish stories, poems, stage pieces, and other types of writing on my Patreon site.

I also try to write semi-frequently here on my blog, where I’ll cover anything from a recent travel adventure to a review of a book I’ve read, a recipe I’ve tried, or just something interesting (to me) that I feel like musing about.

Just so you know, if you see links on this site, they likely lead to one of three* places:

  • An older post or another page on my blog/site
  • My Patreon sitewhere you can become a subscriber to get never-before-released short stories, flash fiction, and an ongoing serial work that I publish only for patrons.
  • My personalized Beachbody coach links, which include my affiliate ID.

I just wanted you to be aware that some of these links do provide some sort of monetary benefit to me (assuming you subscribe or order something, of course).

*There will be links to other places, of course. But those are the primary ones, and since two of them involve money, I wanted to disclose that up front!
