I figured that since I am currently offering the novella for free, I should probably share the story of how Child of the Sage came to be. After I finished writing Portal Seeker in the early summer of 2021, I thought I was done with my series. After all, I had three loose stories that […]

Stuff I’ve written about writing and reading in particular.
Two years ago
The first of February marks a milestone for me, one that I celebrated with a post last year that you can read if you would like. The day marks my two year anniversary at my present job. Many of you will note that I don’t share on public social media what my job is. I’ve […]
I get people who ask me where I come up with the ideas for my novels and stories in my Portals Series. Since I already wrote blog posts on both The Keeper of the Key and Last of His Kind, I figured I would talk about Portal Seeker in this post. This is my favorite […]
Just Keep Going
I had a case of the Mondays this past week. I was running a bit behind getting to work. I left in a hurry, forgetting my freshly made and not-yet-been-sipped travel mug sitting on the kitchen counter as I dashed out the door. About twenty minutes in on the job, I realized I was wearing […]
Last of His Kind
I get people who ask me where I come up with the ideas for my novels and stories in my Portals Series. Since I already wrote a blog post on The Keeper of the Key when I last offered it for free, I figured this time around, I would write about the next book in […]

Perchance you’re more like Lieutenant Dan with the cold hard stare of a depression fueled by traumatic circumstances and […]
Since July, I have been doing something that, for me is so simple and ordinary, but apparently, it’s a big deal. In July, I made the decision to start celebrating the birthdays, anniversaries, and other celebrations of other people…. and not just the small group of family and friends I normally celebrated. About once a […]
Note – I posted this blog originally on 25 May 2022, but added to it 7 December 2022, so I am republishing it. “And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:39 (both the NIV and NRSV are worded this way.) I chose to lead this blog post with a Bible […]
Sometimes in my writing, I feel like I am in a sort of limbo stage. I ask myself, now what? And as usual, it comes about this time of the year, when I should be excited about the holiday season. After all, NaNoWriMo has been completed for another year by yours truly. I did win, […]
