Happy September everyone! I'm someone who adores the fall. Yes, I'm drinking pumpkin spice coffee already. LOL. Give me days with crisp air, leaves on the ground, and cozy sweaters! I bought myself a sweater while in Scotland that I plan to practically live in for the next six months. To celebrate the coming change, … Continue reading I’ve got a guest!
Hey everyone! If you read my last post, you know I recently did something I can't remember not wanting to do. I took a page from Bilbo Baggins and went on an adventure. Today, I came home again at last. The plane ride happened last Friday. I've technically been home for almost a week. But … Continue reading And I’m home again
Hey everyone! Yes, I know it's been a while since I posted here. As per normal, life happened. This was a good thing, though. I've touched on this before, how the last 2 -3 years of my life have been chaotic. Too many things to list, and most weren't good. Death came to visit far … Continue reading Finding peace in chaos
Hey everyone! No, I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth. Life has been, well, life. One of the things I've found most interesting lately is the whole 'cockygate' situation. You know what it breaks down to? Someone who was so totally insecure about their own writing that they chose to not do the … Continue reading Time to check your author privilege

I'm going to be rather blunt today. It's a day for it. There's more than 1 puzzle piece you have to look at to be a successful author. Here's a short list. Marketing Ebooks Content Cover Blurb Print books You can't obsess over just one part of that and put all your hopes and dreams … Continue reading Stop the obsession behavior!
Ten years ago, I wasn't writing. I still listened to the voice in my head that said I would never do anything close to good enough for a publisher, so it wasn't worth trying. And so my muse stayed quiet, locked in her cage. We'd been playing in a Dungeons and Dragons game for over … Continue reading Celebrating a milestone
Happy New Year! Took last week off for the holiday, head back to work tomorrow, but I'm more relaxed now. Update for those of you who read my books! 'Guarding Amber' is done with editing! I hope to have it up for sale before mid-January. It's my 20th title, which amazes me. I want to … Continue reading Let’s talk business
I'm a bit off kilter today. Some of it may be related to seeing 'The Last Jedi' last night. No spoilers from me, I loved it. Even if I'm still feeling a bit of shock from the ending. To be honest, that's a sign of excellence. The team - actors, writers, producers, director, all of … Continue reading Let’s get real, shall we?
