March Update

How is it already March!? Ugh, this year... My primary goal for February was to finish the first draft of REBEL ENGINEER (Chroniker City #2.5), and while I made lots of progress, I still have a long way to go before I write "The End". I'm a little over halfway through...

February Update

January was a bit of a disappointment. I started out really strong, and then, of course, illness inevitably struck (thanks, dear toddler), and I’ve spent the latter half of the month taking care of a sick toddler and feeling like garbage. The inauguration did nothing...

Accidental Political Relevance and Real World Villainy

So, ever since the election, and especially since the president’s inauguration, I have had a really hard time finding the creative muster to write. And since the inauguration and all the news that has come out of that—the slew of executive orders,...

2016 Recap

Despite, 2016 being a generally shit year overall, I got a lot of writing done, hit some exciting milestones in my writing career, and read a lot of really amazing books. And now that we’re at the end of the year, it’s time to look back at what I accomplished, and...

December Update

Last month, I attempted to write 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo, using the month to jumpstart a new draft of The Wizard’s Heart, now titled Written in the Sands and Stars. I managed to stay on pace until the election happened, and I sort of lost my momentum after...

November Update

Just a quick update this month! Upcoming Events I will be at Geek the Library November 19th, from 10:00am - 4:30pm at Rogers Public Library, signing and selling copies of my books, and I'll be talking about what it takes to write a novel to anyone interested. I will...

Author Events

I wrote a post over on The Scriptors blog about doing author events: http://thescriptors.com/author-events/ It’s overwhelming and downright scary to think about all of the future appearances I’ll be putting in over the course of next year, but in truth, it’s something...

October Update

It's October! The absolute best month of the year, and with it, a new website! My old website was rather static and difficult to update, so I decided to revamp the entire thing with the help of Jaime from PureNyx Designs for better functionality and easy...
