The Trouble With Being Sick

This may sound strange, but I used to like getting a little sick from time to time. Not so bad that I landed in the hospital, mind you, but bad enough that I could stay home, curl up on the couch with a mug of chicken soup, and watch the sort of movies that I’ve […]

Making Use of Feedback

Since I recently presented a workshop on this subject at the Muse Online Writer’s Conference, it seemed appropriate to put it up on my blog as well. Here is what I presented — it does repeat what I say in the “Honest Feedback” topic just a little bit: If you are serious about becoming a […]

Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family

I am only halfway through this book, but I want to throw in something that I am feeling strongly positive about so you don’t go thinking I dislike or am ambivolent about every book I read. I enjoy a great many books that, in time, will probably end up getting a review here. (I wanted […]

The Eve of Anna

I read The Eye of Anna by Anne Wingate about two weeks ago. I often try to throw in a mystery/detective novel into the mix from time to time and I understood that when it comes to forensic science, Anne Wingate knows her stuff. I will agree — Anne Wingate does know her stuff when […]

Edits are back!

I returned the edited version of my novel to the publisher last week. I am relieved, excited, and nervous about it. It’s out of my hands now — but on the other hand, it’s OUT OF MY HANDS! No more tweaking this thing in chapter 6 or reconsidering that flashback in chapter 10. It’s done. […]

The Five People You Meet In Heaven

I’ve decided to start a section of my blog dedicated to letting you know what I’m reading and what I think about it. I try to read a wide variety of books but you will see more science fiction and fantasy on this blog than any other type of story. I will begin with a […]

Edits are in!

I’m not going to make this a long post, seeing as how I need to be working on getting the revisions done, but I did want to let everyone know that the edits for Touch of Fate are in. I don’t think I need to do any major rewriting on it, but there is definitely […]

Bragging Rights

It’s time to take some bragging rights in regards to my precautious son, Drake.He’s just seven months old and already he’s proving to be a very strong little boy. He started crawling before five months, cruising right on six, learned to pull himself to standing and sitting positions somewhere in all that, and is currently […]

I will be 30 next year…

I turned 29 on June 10th. Apparently, I now have the option of remaining 29 from this year forward. I will be 30 next year. This past year has been one of the best of my life. Since turning 28, I had the best baby boy in the world (no bias, of course) and sold […]
