Guess who's back, back again.

If you guessed ME, you'd be right.  It's good to be here, thank you for coming.

I know, I know, it's been a long time, radio silence and all, and for that I apologize.  

If you don't know me, or aren't sure how you got here, let's get acquainted. 

Hi, I'm Tia, this is my website.  I used to write a blog, I don't anymore because of many reasons which I don't have time to list and also you don't care but MAINLY because I don't have time since I WROTE A BOOK INSTEAD.

Maybe some of you knew me back in the old Clever Girl Goes Blog glory days, when all I worried about was my hair and whether or not the infamous Hubs would ever stop snoring.

(I mean, in reality we all know that I worried about a lot more stuff because HI NEUROTIC but let's just go with it.)

(Also, can we get a round of applause for the long-suffering Hubs? He's still hangin' in like a champ. And still snoring HIII HUBS <3)


As long as I can remember, the only thing I've ever wanted to be was a writer. I'm not sure if I always knew what that even meant, or how a person was supposed to make a living doing it, but I wanted it regardless.

So I wrote things, and some of them were good, and some not so good, and some I even published on the internet. (Both the good and the not so good, in case you were wondering, I'm nothing if not consistently inconsistent.) And a few people liked it.

If I'm being very honest, writing is the only thing that makes sense to me. It's my one constant in a never-ending cycle of hobbies, life changes, challenges, and obligations. But even though for me it was a basic need, it was largely still just a dream.

Until today.

Today is a bucket list day, because today my debut novel Hey Sunshine is available for preorder on Amazon. It will be officially available on all platforms on April 28th.

So not only is today a bucket list day, but it's also a day that proves to me that I can dream, and I can do, because I did.
