I signed up for the March 10k word challenge on Chapterbuzz.  So far I’m doing great, skipped writing on the weekend and still ahead of my word count. And it’s the last ook in the Mechanicsville trilogy, so fans can stop asking when it’s coming out.  It’ll still be months, but now I will have progress to show! Read more…


One Shot, the second Talia Sunborn adventure will be released on March 5th on Kindle, Kobo, ibooks and more! I’m so excited to release this short (8500 words) tale into the wild. You’ll see the tragedy that made her so stingy with her heart, the life that made her a killer, and how easily her little heart Read more…


I am 99.9% done editing One Shot, the second Talia Sunborn short story.  It’s out for its final spit and polish edit. So it may be released as early as Monday. Yeah, Monday sounds like a good day. Both Talia stories are background to my novel, Nets to Catch the Wind. It’s a full length, high fantasy Read more…


Mechanicsville fans will be happy to know that I am writing draft 1 of book 3 (title to be determined) during Nanowrimo.  Yes, by Nov 30th I will have 50,000 words of a terrible first draft to be polished into the further adventures of Samantha, Ashley and Faraj. So an edited version will be for sale this Read more…


I finished the tax journal for authorpreneurs today! I had promised people that it would be ready for Can-Con, and it will be. Barring printer problems, idiots at customs and so forth, of course. I don’t have a table at Can-Con, so I’ll have a few in my bag and a box in my room, just stop Read more…


Sometimes it happens a lot. Explodes kinda. I recently found out I’m becoming a godmother! I’ll try to be the nice one, not the one who curses the whole castle.  No promises.  🙂 We’ve been to 2 out of 3 baby showers, being the first grandchild in both the mom and pop-to-be’s families, everybody wanted to celebrate.

Right now I’m reading Val McDermid’s article on her writing routine. She gets up at 9am, starts working by 11. This is me! I get up around 830am, drag my bones out to get dressed, have a coffee, and am at the computer by 10. I then do email and blogs for a while, just like her. Read more…


Happy Mother’s Day, mom… a little late.  In my defence, I did remember on the day, and the day after, I just couldn’t get through on the phone, or you were out.  Then my jerk brain said “Great, reminded you twice. My job here is done! And I forgot. I really should have remembered, the 14th was Read more…


Tomorrow morning bright and early, we leave on a ten hour drive to my Mom’s to help with her wedding.  It’s both stressful (Mom reports turning into a 16 yo bridezilla) and incredibly cute. So, I spent all day yesterday packing for a 2 week trip, and was supposed to spend today getting the house ready to Read more…


I entered a short story contest put on by Radish a few weeks ago. Radish is an online story sharing app, kind of a pro-level Wattpad. Except that it just goes to Mac Apple products for now. (They are working on an Android app) I entered a short story based in my world for Nets to Catch Read more…
