Penny’s Scribblings

To me, writing isn’t just a hobby.

It’s a way of life.

*wise face*

Basically, I like writing.


Characters run around in my head all day and never give me a break!

Plot bunnies attacking me left and right.

Sobbing in front of a laptop.

Having the weirdest Google history EVER.

Editing my stories, keeping me awake at night.


As crazy as it sounds, I like writing.

I want to give people a way to escape, enjoy a new place, and then come back more hopeful than before.

I have been currently working on some novels that I hope to publish soon. Want to hear about them?

Well, you can’t.


Come check them out!!!

The Summer I Saw Blue Peak Scenery

Check out my full Pinterest board for my novel here.




When Christian and his brother and Mom move back in with their Grandpa at his B&B in the rural mountains of North Carolina, he’s not so sure about it. It’s hundreds of miles away from his friends, the B&B is worn down and decaying, and not to mention the pesky girl next door who won’t leave him alone. But the town of Blue Peak seems to be holding some secrets, including some by his new friend, Luna. But together they set out to have the most amazing summer ever, doing everything from forming a club, hiking, and even busting moonshiners. Maybe they’ll both see Blue Peak a different way this summer. Because Christian has a different way of seeing things. He’s totally blind.

Casey Newman’s life really does stink. His man-child uncle moved in with his duck breeding business, his dad was shipped off to Iran for his work in the military, and did I mention? Casey just went blind due to a serious medical condition. But Casey is determined to become a stand up comedian, even in the middle of this tragedy. But with Casey’s outrageous sense of humor, his idiot best friend Riley, sassy big sister Jules, and a new friend he may have found in an instructor, things don’t have much time to get dull! Maybe they’ll all learn why laughter is sometimes the best way we can heal.
