Child of the Sage

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 […]

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 […]

True Love

It’s hard to believe that the month of January is already nearly over. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s the season of lovers, romance, chocolate and flowers. Stores and other venues are decorated with pinks, reds and whites and it seems as though love is in the air. But there are so many […]

Portal Seeker

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 […]

While most of the games they played weren’t things I was interested in, […]

In the Bleak Midwinter

After a full month, those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere have entered into the midst of the season called winter. The bleakness of this season has settled upon us. And even though I did indeed write a post just two weeks ago titled “January doesn’t stink,” there is some melancholic bitterness to […]

Shine bright

The young son of a friend of mine is such a free spirit. He is very expressive in the way that he dresses and moves. He dares to wear things that many would call unconventional, drawing attention to himself. I know that there are people who may frown at the way he is, for he […]

Imagination

As a fantasy author, I often have flights of fancy. I have an imagination that often runs wild, creating scenarios in my head that play out countless times throughout the day. Some I write down, but a vast majority end up just filtering into my head again, settling amongst the dust into thoughts that get […]

Do Justly. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly.

“O for a world where everyone / respects each other’s ways / where love is lived and all is done / with justice and with praise.” ~ First verse of the song “O For a World” by Sister Miriam Therese Winter In the United States, today is the celebration of the life of Dr. Martin […]
