Four Months and Counting and Vision Board

For those of you who are new, welcome! And as newbies you may not know that, in addition to The Sword & Shield I have completed another, completely separate novel. Seer is a Young Adult standalone fantasy that I wrote in a freakishly short time (less than a year). I know some people can pumpContinue reading “Four Months and Counting and Vision Board”

2021

Well if you’re reading this you survived 2020. Congrats! But we can’t let down our guard just yet. There are still many unresolved plot lines that 2020 has left for us to complete. For example, what the heck happened to murder hornets??? Weren’t they supposed to be a thing? I rang in the New YearContinue reading “2021”

Merry Christmas and a Happy Saturnalia!

I love gift giving. It is, I would go so far as to say, my primary love language. I take my time methodically selecting presents that will bring that specific person joy, and then receive my reward by enjoying the look of delight on their faces when they realize what kind of meticulous time andContinue reading “Merry Christmas and a Happy Saturnalia!”

The Adventures of Steve: An Anthology Told in Pictures

Have a Merry Christmas everyone and Bye for now!

Children Come in All Forms

Children come in all shapes and sizes. While I have not birthed any spawn of my own, I often refer to my book as my first born child. And then, of course, there are my fur babies Echo, Kira, and Gipsy Danger. Like human offspring, my children have brought me joy, frustration, tears, and momentsContinue reading “Children Come in All Forms”

Divine Inspiration

In the wee hours of the morning (3AM) on Saturday November 28th I woke up from a dream where Dolly Parton said she believed in me and if that’s not a sign then I don’t know what is. Let me explain, this is the woman who wrote over Three THOUSAND songs! If that isn’t aContinue reading “Divine Inspiration”

Thanks 2020, You Can Stop Now

So this year is a mixed bag for me as far as things to be thankful for. Given the last 11ish months, sometimes it’s hard to remember that a lot of really amazing things have happened to me this year. My debut novel was published, I transitioned to working from home with only one panicContinue reading “Thanks 2020, You Can Stop Now”

Neener Neener

So here’s the thing. Sometimes shit happens. It’s inevitable. Like I said in a recent post, you’ve gotta dust yourself off and move on. But I feel like I didn’t emphasize enough how you only lose in that situation if you don’t find a way to grow from it. The way I grew from beingContinue reading “Neener Neener”

It Takes A Village

While it’s not impossible to get through life alone, I’d hate to feel like I ever had to. In that facet of my life I have been very blessed indeed. I have an enviable support system made up of not just friends and family, but also coworkers as well. That’s probably one of the mostContinue reading “It Takes A Village”

Halloween, A Blue Moon, And Anxiety Up The Wazoo

Well this past Saturday was Halloween. I neither participated in the tradition of costuming, nor did I adorn my porch with festive ornamentation. I sat at my computer and worked for eleven hours. Because nothing say Spooky Season like cashing in on 2.5 hours of Overtime! But seriously though, I did participate throughout the monthContinue reading “Halloween, A Blue Moon, And Anxiety Up The Wazoo”
