So, I finally did it. I’ve joined Twitter. I resisted for a long time because deep down I don’t really enjoy social media. Oh, there are bright spots—those rare days when I get real comments from other bloggers and readers—but mostly, I consider it a chore. It’s something I do for my career, like peeling, … Continue reading The Goldilocks Problem
I'm a person who likes preparation. I've always said my superpower is research. It comes from my curiosity and imagination--two things essential for any person, but especially a writer. This past weekend I attended a writer's conference for fantasy and needless to say I was underwhelmed. I spent months preparing. I researched the speakers (where … Continue reading Plans and Villainy

October is almost over and with it's departure comes my last entry for OOO October's Outta the Drawer Originals. I hope it inspire at least one or two of you to unearth some old stories or come up with some new ones. My finale is inspired by my yearly Halloween costume--a night fairy. It's more … Continue reading OOO October’s Outta the Drawer Originals, part V–The Finale
Here we are again, dear readers! October is winding down and before you know it, the end of the year will come and go. I hope some of you have been inspired to dust off some of your shelved work or even start working on some new stories destined for the drawer until the time … Continue reading OOO October’s Outta the Drawer Originals, part IV
I don't know about you, dear reader, but here summer is finally in full retreat and autumn has arrived. It's my favorite time and also my most creative. The first short story I wrote when I decided to call myself a writer out loud was inspired by this picture: It made me think of an … Continue reading OOO October’s Outta the Drawer Originals, part III
There's still four weeks for anyone to participate in OOO October's Outta the Drawer Originals and I really hope you guys will help it catch on! This week I have a double post because I was lucky enough to be tagged by Ari Meghlen for a Writer's Tag, created by Ari and Lorraine Ambers. Thanks … Continue reading Writer’s Tag and I’m it!
The only thing scarier to a writer than sharing their work, is sharing work you assume is less than perfect. For this week's offering, I'm sharing some bad poetry. I'm not a poet, but sometimes the feeling hits me to write in verse. Maybe my regular muse takes a break and trades off with her … Continue reading OOO October’s Outta the Drawer Originals, part II
I interrupt the regularly scheduled FTBC for a special offering. FTBC will return next month. I've been on a alliterative kick lately (for proof see my book website's newest page, Fourth Fridays for Fantasy Foodies) and today is no different. I read a blog post that recommended putting original work out in the world--a frightening … Continue reading OOO October’s Outta the Drawer Originals
For those of you who don’t know, I have another website dedicated to writing, but I also love to support and promote other indies! Hope you enjoy!
Summer and autumn are battling it out, but I have reason to be grateful. The weather here is finally showing signs of getting nippy and the holiday season is fast approaching. I’ve always thought Halloween was a great way to usher in a period of time full of whimsy and enchantment. I can think of no one better to interview at this time of year than Catherine Green, a writer of paranormal stories filled with the creatures that frighten and fascinate. Her books are sure to get you into the spirit of this coming season!
