The Next Big Thing (What’s it Called?)

My buddy, Kait, tagged me in this ten question meme about my current work in progress. Normally, I never have answers for these things, but for this one, I had stuff to say! What is the title of your book? Don’t have one yet. I’ll probably take suggestions from my buddies when I finish writing […]

Whoa! #ROW80 Snuck Up On Me

Some days are tougher than others, but that’s par for the course especially for a newbie like me. Despite my […]

My Hero’s Journey is Kind of Like Terminator, Alien and Other Stuff

Funny where sparks for ideas come from. The idea to do this post came from a post on heroines by Amy Rose Davis.
