New Novel

I've started work on my third 'Yet To Be Named' novel and I'm really excited to write this story. It is my take on a romantic mixed martial arts story with two teenage protagonists and their hilarious entourage. This concept was inspired by a fellow Canadian friend who has gone onto a fair amount of success as a martial arts heavyweight fighter...and Ms. Gina Carano a beautiful and brave young woman with her own talent in the Octagon.

More information to come in the near future.

Not A Rainbow We Can't Chase

I was watching Pure Country 2 last night and after the movie was done this song was playing on repeat in my head. Nothing fancy about these lyrics but they clearly speak right from Ms. Elam's heart to mine. I think any aspiring writer, actor, or singer can relate to the incredible---often frustrating---levels of faith and perseverance required to find any level of success in these professions. It's important to set dreams big and remember there is not a rainbow we can't chase, or challenge we can't face. ;-)

DREAM BIG

There comes a time in every bodies life when your destiny is born
There's no doubt what your all about is there without a warning
When it comes you gotta take it and believe your gonna make it through
There's not a challenge you can't face
There's not a rainbow you can't chase

Dream Big Reach high
Don't ever be afraid to spread your wings and fly
With a heart full of faith a whole lotta luck and some love to see you through
Dream big and it just might come true
Always know what the future holds is in the hands of fate
And don't forget that when times get tough the gift is worth the wait
And when it finally comes together your star will shine forever more
And it could give hope to all the rest
Show them how to be the best

Dream big Reach high
Don't ever be afraid to spread your wings and fly
With a heart full of faith a whole lotta luck and some love to see you through
Dream big and it just might come true.

Lyrics by Katrina Elam.

Set Goals

Set your goals high and aim for your wildest dreams. ~ Mantra around our house. It has worked wonders for my husband and I, but I think the most important message is to set goals (any goals!) and work hard to achieve your dreams...because no good success comes without hard work.


"All dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was in vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible." T. E. Lawrence
