And I gotta say: how breathtaking! We had fun climbing everything…

Book-signings and Nature and Gypsies–oh my!!

Well, per the usual it’s been a couple of months since I’ve posted, but at least I can say I’ve been busy during that time!! The past couple of months have been a fun whirlwind. Every author needs a break now and then, so my writing has been on hold till I’m ready to go…

The Road Goes Ever On

Me and one of my besties, Sarah, also known as Squal (even as I am known as the infamous wizard, Glaz), went on an adventure this past Sunday, delving into the woods and prairies and discovering the gorgeous lily-strewn wetlands of the Shaw Nature Reserve across the river in good ol’ Missouri. Here’s some of…

Purposing the Plot: More Than Just a Love Story

I am finding that a lot of folks are amazed at the amount of books I produce, and at such a quick rate. People act like I’m a bit of an anomaly, and maybe I am. Or maybe I am just really good at planning. Or┬ájust anti-social enough to have nothing better to do than…

Not Like the Movies…and Maybe That’s Exactly How It Should Be

No, Katy Perry, it’s never like the movies. The movies are filled with drama and angst. The movies make you believe that drama and passion are the same thing. The movies also don’t show all the normal, everyday life┬ámoments in between the passion. And if they did, they would make us believe, falsely so, that…
