Favorite Ghost Stories
The book that started my fascination with reading was a ghost story. I read it while I was supposed to be paying attention in class, holding the paperback in my lap and slightly under they desk, and I am 99% sure the teacher saw me and chose not to reprimand me for it. God bless… Continue reading Favorite Ghost Stories
About Villains – October 2022 Round Robin
We've all heard the phrase "Everyone's the hero of their own story". Authors tout this phrase whenever they're dealing with a character who is doing ugly things. Good authors dig in deep and show the mindset that led to these atrocities. Even better authors make you understand the how's and the why's of the character… Continue reading About Villains – October 2022 Round Robin

Any shelter worker, or former shelter worker, is likely to have a ton of personal stories about their family pets. We're all pet people, after all. Current… Continue reading Family Pets
The Berkshire Trip
The Cold Spring Since moving to Massachusetts I have deeply enjoyed traveling the length and breadth of New England.

Pest has been with me the longest.… Continue reading Meet Pest – AKA Editor Extraordinaire

Sometimes we must leave things to the magic of the reading process and permit the Reader to fill in where they wish, and I will admit… Continue reading September Round Robin – Character Creations
The Cover Reveal!
That's right, we are saying goodbye to the placeholder cover for Paw Prints on the Wall! As much as it tickles me to use Canva to create these little placeholders while I'm in the drafting and editing stages of the novel, they simply aren't as eye-catching as a novel needs to be for the professional… Continue reading The Cover Reveal!

My book Paw Prints on the Wall will be out for sale on November 2nd! I'm so excited. I even put… Continue reading Release Date Scheduled!
Current Politics and Fiction – June Round Robin
Welcome to another Round Robin! This month poses the question of whether or not I have placed current political, social, or environmental problems in my work. Normally I like to try and put a fictional spin on these topics and bring forward a more lighthearted approach to our given content, but for this one... For… Continue reading Current Politics and Fiction – June Round Robin
