What's up?

My Knoxville writers’ group has been at it again with more flash fiction. This time we used Seventh Sanctum to give us individual prompts. Seventh Sanctum is a website that provides randomly generated ideas that inspire writers. The following is what came out of my ran...

Rage is not anger. Don’t confuse the two.

We can rant at a neighbor’s dog that won’t stop barking, we can snap at a significant other for not picking up their dirty underwear, we can even feel our blood pressure rise at the words of a politician or shout at another dri...

I got fed up.

My favorite fiction to curl up with has usually been a variation of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Yet now after bingeing on the genre for a while, I find myself diversifying.

As a newbie author, I recently realized how important—and fun!—it was to be a member of the Knoxville Writers Guild and the guild’s Sci-Fi/Fantasy Writers’ Group. I can’t believe how much I’ve learned over the past year and how much of what I’ve learned has affected my...

I received super exciting news at the first of the year. The boutique publisher of my novel, Curse Me Not, has taken my e-book to print!
