I'm back from my accidental hiatus! Where was I? Well, that's a good question. There was a cold that wouldn't leave, a trip to two different states to visit family, and plenty of writing. I've actually written three blog posts since my last update but never hit publish on any of them. They didn't feel … Continue reading Fall 2018 Update
Happy Autumn Equinox! I mean, it was 110 degrees today but let's pretend it's PSL season here. I welcomed fall to the desert by spending the day with a pie pumpkin. (It put up a fight.) I cut it, roasted it, peeled it, mashed it, and turned it into a gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, organic … Continue reading The Healthy Author: Part One
This blog has been a long time coming. It’s a topic close to me, and I’m sure to many many other writers since the dawn of literature.

This blog title sounds like a long-lost Jane Austen novel, doesn’t it? Austen might understand what I’m talking about, so I guess it’s fitting. So. Long ago Virginia Woolf famously stated that women writers need “money and a room of one’s own” if they want to stand a fair chance at making it as a writer … Continue reading A Challenge of Circumstance
People always have something to say when they find out you’re a writer. Sometimes it’s not always polite. Many times it’s dismissive. But my favorite people are the ones that ask how. I spend a lot of time talking to other writers about craft so it’s easy to forget that other people have zero clues … Continue reading Ask the Writer: When is a Story Done?
Note: I had a New Year’s resolution to make this blog a regular thing. As you can see that didn’t really happen. But with my 30th approaching and the sudden influx of lifestyle blogs I’ve started reading, the urge to make good on that goal had reemerged. Here’s a cheat sheet for those not interested … Continue reading Blog: Take It Easy for a Little While…
I really should write more blog posts, my friends. I really enjoy reading others, but when it comes to writing my own I blank. Does anyone really want to hear how my food allergy elimination diet is gong? I haven't had cheese in ages, and I am very sad about this. Is there anyone other … Continue reading August News: Update on Liminal Boy and Other Stuff
Ebooks: Amazon Barnes and Noble Smashwords Print: Amazon Links will be added to this post as I become aware of them. As always, don't forget to leave a review! Reviews are really important if you want to see a sequel or just more books in general from me.
