I’ve Got the Power

I tend to hyper-fixate on certain subjects and certain words from time to time. There was the time I learned all I could about the American Civil War (which still fascinates me to this day). There was the time I researched the Greek word λόγος (or logos) just because it was interesting. Get me talking […]

It’s been a wild and crazy year

One year ago, I started a new project…. I started actively blogging on this very site. I had started blogs in the past, notably the genealogical history blog I still write on Blogger, but I hadn’t actively aimed to do more than a post a month or so. My goal with this blog wasn’t really […]

Change the Voices in Your Head

I have a confession to make. While others see me as beautiful and kind, it’s hard for me to see it. My other half will attest to this. While there are days I feel absolutely gorgeous in my own skin, there are still days where I can hear some ugly voices from my past. When […]

Free Novel This Weekend!

I often hear: “K. S., I think it’s cool you’re writing. I want to read one of your books….” I also hear questions like “Why aren’t you famous yet?” and “How many books have you sold?” and “Are you even trying to sell your books?” Here’s your chance to help me become famous AND read […]

It takes a village

I am a firm believer in the saying “It takes a village to raise a child.” After all, while I don’t have children of my own to raise, I was raised by parents who readily accessed a handful of people to help us out as needed. Aunts and uncles lovingly sent me gifts. Grandparents, both […]

This is currently the final novella in the series, as there are two novels in […]

Imposter Syndrome

I recently was introduced to the sister of an acquaintance at my church. The acquaintance first introduced her sister to me, then turned to her sister and said “And this is Kelley. She’s a writer.” Instantly, I felt both elated and humbled and even a bit terrified. It was my first introduction to a perfect […]

Newest Novella Released!

I am pleased to announce that the 14th work in my Portals Series has been released. This, along with Common-Born, are the two novellas that are most near and dear to my heart in the series. If you want to know why, then maybe you should read them! Note: This is the first novella offered […]

Never too old to learn

I have often heard the idiom “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” In fact, an older person I talked to recently actually used that idiom to complain that he was too old to learn some of the new things in this world. I countered, of course, that he wasn’t old. After all, I […]

Summer

“When life gets rough, I like to hold on to my dream of relaxing in the summer sun, just lettin’ off steam….Oh, the sky would be blue, and you guys will be there too.” ~ Olaf (Josh Gad) from “Frozen” At least in the northern hemisphere, today is the first official day of summer. It’s […]
