I need to point a few things out about my websites. Anyone who has followed my sites, has seen that I simply have not been doing anything with them. I haven’t had the mental capacity to mess with them much. Thankfully, wordpress is very easy to use, or I wouldn’t be blogging right now.
So, this blog is going to be changing its focus, so to speak. I am sure that I will probably still talk about writing techniques, but it will no longer be the primary focus of my blog. You, my reader(s) probably don’t know me too well. That is about to change. My posts are going […]
So, I am finally back in some small semblance of the word. For those of you who have not followed my blog in any capacity let me provide you with a short and very abbreviated recap:
I gave birth to my wonderful son in 2010. His birth resulted in permanent nerve damage to me. The […]
So, I know it seems like I’ve dropped off the face of the earth, but I haven’t. Unfortunately, my health has deteriorated and I am no longer able to work. For that matter, my employer terminated me because I had no “specific return to work date.” Yes, I’m a little bitter about that, but oh […]

Yes, it was only a matter of time before I weighed in on this subject. For my birthday, which is in February, I purchased a Micro Velocity Cruz Reader. I did mass amounts of research before my purchase, but ultimately became enamored with the bright color screen and android operating system. Unfortunately, it stopped working […]
We all have our favorite authors as kids and as adults. I recently read Lois Duncan’s The Third Eye, which reminded me how much I like her writing. One of my favorite’s of hers is Locked in Time. That book had me riveted and it’s a great read. My point, is don’t forget about your […]
Pen on Fire by Barbara DeMarco-Barrett was a great book. Now, this is not for everyone. However, I had a baby, I’m working full time, and my life is generally crazy. So this book spoke volumes to me about finding time to write, committing to my writing, and not giving up. It was […]
Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier is truly a delve into the fantastic through beautiful prose and detailed imagery. I was wandering around my local library and saw this book. I started reading page one and couldn’t put it down. This book was inspired by the 12 dancing princesses fairy tale.
