Johnny Goblin and his crew wish you a very Happy Halloween. May your buckets be full of paper-wrapped candy and your pumpkin-heads never rot.
It's that time of year again, when all my writer friends are having crazy fun getting started with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I always feel a pull to join them, and this year is no different. It's also the same in that I'm in the middle of a big piece that I really need … Continue reading To Nano, or Not to Nano
I've heard people say, "Writing begets writing" (if you know the origin of this excellent quote, please let me know in the comments!). I find this to be absolutely true. For me, writing doesn't just lead to more writing. It leads to more creativity in general. Traveling along the writer's path, I've learned so many … Continue reading Creative Endeavors
I'm 2,000 words away from typing "The End" on the sixth Department of Homeworld Security novella! I'm pretty sure that's going to happen today. There are several reasons this is very special. For one, this is the last Department of Homeworld Security novella that I have on my writing schedule. That doesn't mean it's the … Continue reading 2,000 Words

Stories I've longed to write, ideas taking shape in my mind's eye, new projects that I think will bring me great joy. At this point, I need to do the work of bringing them … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Sixteen
I set myself an overly ambitious goal in December to finish a rough draft. I'm not sure I can even call it a goal. I'm not sure what was behind me thinking, "Gee, I wonder if I can write an 80,000 word novel while hosting family holidays and dealing with the busiest time of year … Continue reading Letting Go…Again

And of course, the dragon Bookwyrm was dressed in her festive Santa hat ❤ If I tried to update … Continue reading Focusing on Happiness—Week Twelve
It's been just over a week since Lingering Touch came out. There's been so much activity surrounding it! I added a section to the Lingering Touch page on my web site just to track all the guest blog posts, features, and interviews! ❤ I'm thrilled to have been interviewed on the USA Today Happy Ever … Continue reading Still Celebrating…With Food!
Today is triply blessed for me. It's the Summer Solstice and the full moon for June—the Strong Sun Moon. And also, today is the release day for my latest scifi novella (which is not at all a coincidence 😉 ). It's a good time to take stock of the last year, and after reading my … Continue reading The Strong Sun Moon
Here's a quick little post about the Universe once again giving me some feedback 🙂 Last night, I gave myself a bit of a break and played some video games in front of the TV (decadent!). I have so many projects in the works right now, with edits for the spider-headed zombie romance underway, the … Continue reading Messages from the Universe
