Hi, I'm Talena!

I write uplifting novels and songs in multiple genres, knitting patterns that empower, a blog about this thing called “life,” and two newsletters (Books & Inspiration and My Secret Wish Knitting), all meant to leave you thrilled, inspired, and motivated. I’m also addicted to tea, books, and silver linings. Sound like we’d get along? Take a look around. I’d love to connect with you!

My current writing project is a young adult science fantasy trilogy called Rise of the Grigori. Book 1, The Undine’s Tear, is set to release May 14, 2019. (Why, yes, I did manage to fit mermaids, sphinxes, dragons, and angels all into the same story. Intrigued? Join my Books newsletter to keep tabs on my progress and get the free prequel novella, The Waterboy, on March 27.)

Let me Inspire You.
