At Long Last!

For my OG fans who read The Sword & Shield in the past year and a half you are familiar with the rough around the edges first attempt at a debut novel. Recently I re-released it with a few updated tidbits, edits, and an all around better version. But because I’m not Scrooge McDuck, I’mContinue reading “At Long Last!”

Secure Your Mask Before Helping Others

If you’ve been on a plane you’re familiar with the pre-flight spiel. Life vest under your seat, lights will illuminate the aisle directing you to the nearest emergency exit, and oxygen masks may drop from the ceiling. Without fail, during this one man show put on by the flight attendant, they will instruct you toContinue reading “Secure Your Mask Before Helping Others”

SWEATER WEATHER!!!

FALL! AUTUMN! Leaves are changing, sweaters are coming out of storage, and spooky scary skeleton season has surfaced! I had an amazing weekend. The reason for that being that, for the first time in the three years since I met her at at the Cincinnati Writer’s Digest Conference, I was in the same room asContinue reading “SWEATER WEATHER!!!”

31 Years Around the Sun: A Medieval Celebration!

This past Saturday (9/11/2021) I turned 31! That’s right, for any recent readers my birthday is September 11th at 11:30PM. If my mom had crossed her legs I might have squeaked by with a 9/12 birthday but oh well. Michigan weather smiled upon me on my birthday with 81 degree weather full of cool breezes.Continue reading “31 Years Around the Sun: A Medieval Celebration!”

Tentatively: The Sea & Storm AND Updated Sword & Shield!

When I opened the 20,000ish word document that held the beginnings of The Sword & Shield’s sequel (The Sea & Storm), I was shocked to see that the last time I touched it was back in December 2020. This was less a writer’s block and more a writer’s monolith. The Kaaba would be a moreContinue reading “Tentatively: The Sea & Storm AND Updated Sword & Shield!”

Food For the Soul

Last Thursday I went to my first Post-Covid concert. Lindsey Stirling, a ballerina/violinist is one of my favorite musicians and as soon as I saw that she was coming to Michigan I knew I had to be there to see her live! I also knew it would be a good stress reliever and some fillingContinue reading “Food For the Soul”

A New Addition!

Nothing says BFFFEs (best friends for fucking EVER) quite like matching tattoos. Myself and my platonic soul-mate Amanda took the plunge Saturday and went to her ridiculously talented cousin and tattooist at Old Soul Tattoo Parlor out in Keego Harbor. Not only did she have a delicate touch but she was hella fast and IContinue reading “A New Addition!”

I Am Ready To (bed)ROCK!

I am beyond ecstatic to announce that I have accepted a new position as a Senior Team Coordinator within Bedrock. The joy is multi-faceted. Let me explain. Bedrock is still within the Rock Family of Companies (commonly known for their flagship company Rocket Mortgage/previously called Quicken Loans) which means I get to stay with theContinue reading “I Am Ready To (bed)ROCK!”

Seer: Be Seeing You Real Soon!

So as many of you know I had a contract with a lovely publishing house and was due to release Seer in late May of this year. Due to a confluence of events and at the fault of no one involved, my agent and I have made the decision to pull the book, give itContinue reading “Seer: Be Seeing You Real Soon!”
