• Starting Fresh

    New things are coming to my website! “By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen” – Heb. 11:3 Hello my friends, It’s been a while since I made a post. I am very hopeful that you are all doing well. There’s so much that has changed around here I will encourage you to take a look if you so desire. There are more changes coming up and I should be a bit more active than the last year and a half.  I have experienced some life-changing moments in my life with…

    My Latest Short Story Ready for Summer! Hello, my friends, My latest short story is here! Hurrah. I’m excited. There’s a chance I’ll expand on this idea, but as of right now this is what I’ve written and will let it swirl around my mind until I feel called to keep writing in the world of ocean kingdoms, empires, and merfolk’s life with the surface people.  The working blurb (as of right now): “Rory has a secret. A secret very few people know about. She is the daughter of the Kraken King – a sea monster. Masquerading as a human when on dry land she must keep up the facade…

  • A Simple Plotting Guide for Writers

    Hello, book and writer geeks, Before I get to the plotting guide I would like to have a bit of transparency and full honesty: While I do have a few writers’ certificates from correspondence courses and have taken a handful of English and creative writing classes, I don’t have any major writing degree (maybe one day I’ll finish a creative writing degree, but today is not that day.) I am just a simple, geeky person with an inner, blazing fire for writing and creating that has been burning since I was a child. The desire to be forever learning my craft will never cease. During my ongoing desire to write,…

  • ‘Hunter Shan: Rising Storm’ Cover Reveal

    Here it is!!! But first a word from my sponsor… Just kidding, I don’t have a sponsor. What I do have is an amazing support system of friends and family who have been my cheerleaders from the very beginning. I am eternally grateful to have them in my life. For those who don’t have a support system of a cheer squad ready with words of encouragement I truly wish you will find your flock, your pack, your pride, your [random animal group name here]. Until then, “You can do it!”, “You are amazing!”, “Get your butt in the chair and write!” (<– For my writerly friends), “Stay Hydrated”. On with…

    A Quick Note! Summer is almost over, (aww) but Autumn is arriving (yeah!) School has now returned and I feel like my schedule is back on track. Though I suppose that I could’ve kept a schedule going throughout the summer but I was either hunched over my computer writing my first draft to my latest novel (Prince Noralv: Edge of Shadows, Book Two!) or I’ve been going on family outings and gatherings. My summer has been full and I am grateful. Now with Autumn (Fall as some prefer to call it) on the horizon, I am so very in the mood for sweaters, books, stationery, fire in the fireplace, pumpkin spice…

  • Hooked on Stories and a Giveaway

     The Stories That Started It All Every reader (that I know of) all remember that one (or two) story/series that sucked them into the world of reading. For me, it was two series’. The first was The Mandie Mystery series by Lois Gladys Leppard, a light-hearted mystery following the life of Mandie Shaw and the puzzles that she either stumbled upon or her curiosity that got the better of her. She and her friends became determined to figure it out which usually led to some sort of trouble and excitement. For a young girl (like I was) I truly fell in love with all of her lively adventures. The next series…

  • Making an Action Dream Board

    Happy New Year, my friends! A new year is now here. Time for a fresh start, resolutions, and setting goals. Everyone has their own ideas about resolutions and goal setting and I’m not going to claim to be an expert on those things. I will, however, be trying out a dream (vision) board to see how well they work. I’ve heard them called action boards with the hopes that you’ll be spurred into action instead of just dreaming. I love dreaming so I will be dubbing mine an action dream board – cause I will be taking some serious action! It’ll be an experiment for me. Vision, Action, Dream Board.…
