The Dead Man Chronicles: Author Q and A

On June 21, 2017, Posted by , in Writing, With No Comments

Just 2 days away from the official launch of my first novel! I’m excited and apprehensive, but that’s to be expected. I’ve spent the better part of this year writing, researching, reaching out to people, scheduling promos, all for this moment.   In this post I wanted to share some info…

There is No Perfect | There is Only Finished

I’ve been a closet fiction writer for years. So closeted that I never considered myself a “real” writer even though the title is all over my website and marketing materials. To be fair, I’ve written a lot…Just look at this blog. But I have a lot of unfinished fiction work….

Birthday Letter to a Younger Me

Significant times of the year always make me contemplative. I usually pour my thoughts into my personal journal which only myself and a few others have ever seen. But this year, as I approach a certain age, I decided I’d write something to myself at age 12. A summation of…

The POWER of Gratitude

The Law of the Struggle

I hate the saying “everything happens for a reason.” “Who’s reason?” and “How do you know this?” are my immediate thoughts. I don’t like to think that there is a “reason” behind every painful and unpleasant experience we face. But there is a law in this universe (like gravity) that no…
