Monster Hunters part 2

Part two has arrived. I’m so glad I decided to do this. It’s been a helpful tool to force myself to keep writing in what is a very busy season. I know I’ve mentioned this before but having deadlines really helps. Another reason I am doing this is that I felt I needed to write some stories without overthinking them.… Read more →

The Dreamer’s Tears re-release

After six months of uncertainty regarding The Dreamer’s Tears I can finally announce that I have re-released the ebook. I’m hoping to have print books available soon but in the meantime I am so happy that the book is available for readers once again. You can buy a copy here. Why have I decided to self-publish? Well, after so much… Read more →

The Grand Voyage of Alida

Ivy scanned the contents page of Master Torbolt’s book. The titles were interesting enough: The Ridiculous Venture of Myster Han, The Four High Hopes of Finckle Major, A Pompous Wind. She pulled the blankets well over her legs and leaned back against her high pile of pillows.

I was tagged by Julianne Alcott, a fellow writer who has recently released her YA SF romance, The Ripmender.  Even though my own book only comes out in March 2015, I… Read more →

Jaleigh Johnson – Writer

Jaleigh Johnson is the author of the middle grade steampunk fantasy, The Mark of the Dragonfly. I read this novel a few months ago and could not put it down. This extraordinary blend of genres was an adventure I will not soon forget. And so, of course, I thought I needed to ask Jaleigh some questions… she was kind enough… Read more →

Out of character

This is slightly out of character for me. I don’t usually post things like this but when I saw these pictures my cousin had done, I couldn’t help myself. She drew/painted these some time ago, completely unaware that my current-almost-completed novel had horse-like creatures in it. I don’t like to talk about projects in too much depth until they are… Read more →

Down the rabbit hole…

…down the rabbit hole, through the wardrobe, into the computer, through the looking glass, out of the matrix,  into a worm-hole… What is this fascination story-tellers have with being magically transported into equally magic worlds? I’ve been reading The Magician’s Nephew to my son before bed. I’ve been amazed at the intensity of his interest for this story – he… Read more →
