This year I have a lot to be thankful for. My family, friends, agent, career, health and so much more. Has it been bumpy at times? Of course. But I’m a Michigander and bumpy roads are nothing new. I’m also thankful for the muse which I had briefly thought abandoned me but she was justContinue reading “Thankful & Here We Go Again!”

Random Plot Ideas and Where they Come From
Honestly I have no clue. Maybe I have a muse who works alongside my guardian angel. She whispers ideas in my ear while I’m in the shower or by waking me up at 3AM. The Sword & Shield came from a cat scratch that wasn’t healing properly. Still not sure where Seer came from, andContinue reading “Random Plot Ideas and Where they Come From”
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”
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.

It’s Never Too Late to Follow Your Dreams!
There seems to be this common misconception, this unspoken rule, this bullshit, that you need to achieve your dreams early in life. And you very well might, but don’t give yourself a deadline.

Where Does Inspiration Come From?
The Muse is a fickle wench who visits artists at her own pace. Sometimes she can go years between visits, while other times she might be feeling mischievous and decide to surprise you in the shower. Wherever and whenever she deigns to appear, you better be ready. Keep a notebook by your bedside and aContinue reading “Where Does Inspiration Come From?”
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times
Happy Day after Christmas! I hope everyone had a nice holiday. Let’s dive back in! Being a writer is a little like being a manifestation of Michigan weather. For any fellow natives of America’s High-Five, you know that our weather has a bit of a borderline personality disorder. Meaning it’s crazy. Cray-cray. I feel badContinue reading “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”
Fun Fact Friday: The Fun is Relative
I love Christmas. I think I made that clear during last week’s ‘Fun Fact Friday’. It’s not hard to enjoy a holiday with so many wonderful aspects to it. Food, presents, decorations, the spirit of giving, and wonderful wonderful movies. I recently had the pleasure of seeing a special showing of the 1947, black and white versionContinue reading “Fun Fact Friday: The Fun is Relative”
