Book Release: Tales from Pocatello

Gentle readers, almost a year ago, I published To See Clearly, a labor of love and a labor of many years. As I’ve said before, Bracken was a difficult character to write. I had so many things sitting in the queue while I toiled through getting his story just right. I hoped that after I […]

A Work from Home Mom, 2016

Things have changed a lot from when I started yesterday’s post. For starters, my kids are now in Kindergarten and capable of making their own peanut butter sandwiches instead of being toddler sippy cup junkies.

A Work from Home Mom, 2014

Below is a blog post I started over two years ago. I never finished it because…well, because I was busy taking care of my toddlers. I saved it as a draft and was never able to come back to it. But today seemed a good time to brush it off and post it because it notes an […]

When I Grow Up

I knew I wanted to be an author when I was six years old and my aunt told me that “The White-Pawed Kitten” was one of the best stories she’d ever read. And then my mom, a much less effervescent person, told me that it was pretty good work for a six-year-old. So I knew I […]

In Case of Tornado…

What would you want with you if you were stranded on a desert island? This common question is a game, of course. What about if your house were on fire, what is the one thing you would grab? This scenario is more plausible, but it’s still really a game, isn’t it? Well here in Oklahoma, […]

End of Summer Review

Gentle readers, it feels like this summer has fairly flown by. I kept waiting for the Oklahoma summer heat to hit us, and now that it has, everybody is going back to school. The days have been filled with kiddie pools, treks to the park, dragging the toddlers to the library, and an [un]healthy dose […]

Starcrossed, Available Now!

  Gentle readers, you need to do me a favor and check out my new short story. It’s available for Kindle here for only 99 cents. In my humble opinion, it is pretty great. I really enjoyed writing it, and I think you will enjoy reading it. It’s only 27,000 words, so you can probably read […]

To See Clearly: An Excerpt

It’s been almost a year since I published GCA2: Diving In. I’ve been working on the third installment on and off since then, and I’d like to say that I’m close to publishing it as well, but alas. That would be a lie. Id like to tell you that I haven’t posted on this blog […]
