Amazon Lee and the Ancient Undead of Rome Debut as an Amazon Teen Bestseller, Next to the Hunger Games Books!
Because Teens and Tweens are in tune with the pop culture and trends of their world, it is important to include them if you write books for tweens and teens. Having been active in Schools as a Parent and also as a Community Leader, it was instinctual for me to always include actual tweens and teens in my board and research panels.
Amazon Lee Adventures was actually written as a collaboration with my 12-year-old daughter, who wanted to have a series out there for girls who like adventures, technology, travel, history, and action. The first book, Amazon Lee and the Ancient Undead of Rome just released and debut as a Top 10 Teen bestseller on Amazon and a #1 Hot New Release in Teens. Inside the book are also questions that are specifically related to STEM, ELA Literary, and even Social Studies that follows the Common Core Curriculum of Ancient Civilizations.

Happy to finally share a sneak peek at the Bitter Frost Film, which began production in December! The actor's names are deliberately left out so there will be a bigger reveal later on. Bitter Frost has sold over 1.5 million copies over the world and has been translated into multiple languages. Because many people have formed an idea of who they want cast as the leads, we won't reveal the actors until later. I am happy to be 100% involved in the production of Bitter Frost and am tapped as the Director as well as the Writer and Executive Producer.
For the readers of Bitter Frost, you will finally get an insight into why the title and the series is titled "Bitter Frost".
Winter has Come. The Peace is Undone. Lives will be Lost. It Begins with Bitter Frost.
7 films, 3 TV Series, and over 30 New Books Released in 2017!
It's been a personal record-breaking year for me in 2017 as I embarked on taking on my own Go Girl Challenge and philosophy. I wrote, produced, directed, and starred in 7 films and 3 tv series. I produced, managed, and hosted a live stage international production for a world class stage for charity at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, I started a professional quarterly periodical for Authors and Publishers called Authors Voice. I started a store. I began production and filming on a feature film (Bitter Frost) that will be theatrically released. I partnered up with a tv/film station to produce most if not all of my books into tv and film. I released over 30 books and launched my Sparklesoup eBook Store with over 85 books. Personally, I challenged myself physically by going camping and chaperoning a bunch of tween girls on a remote island without cell phone and internet, decent plumbing. Whew! Became a judge and mentor for an emerging writing community website. Got invited to submit a speech for TED Talk.
4 Wins and 1 Nomination in Film Awards in 2017
This was the year I let it go....stop caring about what rankings or amount of sales I had for my books, and just wrote books and produced tv/films that I felt compelled to write and produce even though they are not going to be the "hot" ones that is on trend. One series was effective enough to make a social difference, in spite of the trolls and critics. It accomplished its purpose. I am satisfied with being true to myself, being true to my beliefs, and being able to achieve more for women and girls. For that, I was rewarded with awards - 4 Wins in Film so far (still going through the Film Festival circuit) and 1 nomination.
Women and International Recognition in 2017
Women made a huge leap in recognition for their work in film and television. More strong women characters were lead characters on screen. And more international/global works of quality are being discovered.
Strong Clarity and Direction in 2017
This was also a year, things became very clear for me, and I was able to see with clarity and wisdom on predicting where things are going in 5 to 20 years. I had visions of where certain industries are going, where certain companies and even countries are going. Strange but true. I felt like Nostradamus.
I lost my dear grandmother this year, but saw a vision of her in a better place. She is happier and at peace, watching over her loved ones in heaven along with my grandfather.
More Amazing Adventures in 2018!
2018 will be Amazing with the Release of the Bitter Frost Film, Loving Summer Film, and even Mysterious Teacher. Author Agent (aka Author A Parody) is coming out in 2018 as well. There will be a lot more books coming in 2018, which didn't get released in 2017 (about 50 are planned). And a lot more Top Secret things.
