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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Like my Halloween Town (which has a series of blog post short stories written about it), I also have a Christmas village, created from a plethora of mismatched pieces I have collected over the years. It too resides on the bookcase upon which Halloween Town makes its appearance, usually being set up the weekend after […]

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, […]

The Casserole

Recently, I heard a sentiment that made me pause and reflect: The holidays are a casserole dish of emotion. At this time of year, no truer words could be spoken. During these shorter days, we deal with many different emotions, often coming in waves upon waves, triggered by something said or done. And in these […]
