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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

January doesn’t stink

A local car salesman in my little swath of the Midwest has an advertisement I have been listening to on the radio a great deal going to and from work, since it plays almost ad nauseum. “January stinks!” is the punchline of the ad, indicating the slowness of sales in the post-holiday rush. Well, Mr. […]

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 […]

Post Holiday

Unlike a number of my friends (if social media posts are any indication), I still have my holiday decorations up and will continue to keep them up until Epiphany on the 6th. That means, in reality, they will likely be up until the 11th, when I have a Saturday off from work and can pack […]

Love

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 […]

Limbo

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, […]

National Novel Writing Month

As if I didn’t have enough on my plate as it was – after all, I am in the middle of getting editing on Luna, writing two more novellas for the Portals Series, and working hard at keeping my page view streak going on a few things while working a full time job and having […]
