They say writers have multiple personalities.
In a way, this is true. I know that when I write characters, I tend to mold myself into him or her and take on their personality. I live another life with every book I write, and that life will always be in those pages. I guess you could say that’s what being immortal feels like.
Of course, some characters are more fun to write than others. Continue reading
How many people do you know can honestly say that they attended a two-room school house?
Most would probably answer that their grandparent did. Maybe even a parent. Thirty-year-olds like me probably don’t even come to mind. But that little, red schoolhouse in the picture really was my elementary school. That was Eureka Elementary. Continue reading
Welcome to 2017!
A new year has dawned. It’s time for a fresh start, and (hopefully) some new luck. It’s also time to start looking at what to get done this year. I’ve spent the last few days coming up with a list of projects that I aim to complete. Continue reading
This week marks the twilight of 2016. And this, the final post of the year.
At least, it’s the end of the most recognized, Western calendar.
See, I actually observe or celebrate three new years every 365 days. First is obviously January 1st, when the calendar resets.

But what better day to share than this? For it is the Winter Solstice; the longest night of the year. Not only does today mark the official start of winter, it is also the Pagan and Wiccan holiday of Yule. Continue reading
Oops! I went and changed my mind again.
I decided that the original cover was too bland despite all the pretty colors. So I changed it over to black and white. This seems more dramatic to me because of the good vs evil theme throughout the book. And, instead of being just a narrow slit of an image framed in black, I expanded the image to take up most of the cover. And then I changed the font. Continue reading
You may have noticed a little drying up of snippets and updates of my writing over the last week. I apologize for that, but, after winning my fourth NaNoWriMo event, I took some time off to catch up on a project for charity. Now that that’s complete, it’s right back to work on The Bone Prophet.
Speaking of the fourth book, you may have also caught a glimpse of the cover when I released the teaser on my YouTube Chanel. Continue reading
