Happy May everyone! Spring has finally arrived in my hometown!
Very early yesterday I was wandering around my backyard and discovered the bleeding heart, my dear husband planted last fall, was in full bloom. As I bent to inspect the tiny, deep red, heart-shaped flowers I felt a rush o... Read more of this blog post »

I just completed the CreateSpace process for creating and publishing a book. Radioactive is just over 130,000 words. It is a crime thriller about nuclear terrorism. It has murder, some romance, and tragedy.
Now, I have to pull up my socks and promote it. So here I am. I figure that the first thing...Read more of this blog post »

My new habit is to be reading about seven books at once. Many of these are read-alouds I have going on with my boyfriend and a few I read…Read more of this blog post »
I wrote this review waaaaay back in 2008. But I thought it might be fun to dig up and post here.
The Dark Knight
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Spent a couple of hours in the movie theater today, for some much-needed fantasy fulfillment and dissociation from reality. I found The Dark Knight to b... Read more of this blog post »

Uno de los subgéneros más populares y, con toda probabilidad, con más éxito comercial de la literatura fantástica es la «fantasía épica». Lo es ahora, como secuela de la trilogía cinematográfica de El señor de los anillos rodada por Peter Jackson, lo es en pleno apogeo de la serie televisiva Jue...
I have never been there. I have never been to Iceland or Sweden. I have never been to Denmark or Finland. I have been told that the Finnish language interconnects with the Czech. Just the briefest survey makes me believe this. A more in depth look may prove me wrong.
Tonight, though, I was having...Read more of this blog post »

It's the beginning of the month. I'm hopeful and sort-of on target, maybe a bit behind, but hey, no biggie, right? I can catch up, totally. And I'll still be blogging once a week with an update like I said I would.
I get sick.
Family stuff happens quite a lot.
And I'm... Read more of this blog post »
Por qué no hablar de esos momentos en los que te gustaría que te Tragara la Tierra...
Hablar desde un alto escenario, donde todos los presentes están pendientes de tus palabras, y no sabes por qué comienzas a ponerte colorada, tan roja como cuando un semáforo detiene el tráfico.

Twee dagen Elfia Haarzuilens 2015 zitten er weer op. Het was een beetje een dubbel gebeuren: aan de ene kant was het natuurlijk super gezellig met de collega auteurs en de bezoekers, en heb ik ‘Stof en Schitteringen’ weer kunnen aanprijzen, verkopen en signeren. Maar aan de andere kant was daar o...Read more of this blog post »

Bueno, pues por fin me estreno. Por una vez saldré de mi mazmorra para contarlea mis vecinos ribereños lo que van a encontrar en esta novela, cómo fue creada, qué tipo de animal soy (o la naturaleza del onzamono) y firmaré dedicatorias con dibujitos. Además, amenizaremos la charla con algunos...Read more of this blog post »
I recently read a great book on business relationships called Riding Elevators Backwards by Larry Stevens, a partner at PriceWaterhouseCoopers. He dedicates a chapter to building relationships on social media, including Facebook and LinkedIn. I will quote just two words from the book: “be del...Read more of this blog post »
Not a facile theology. No quick fixes. No easy answers. All of which would be problematic for a person like me, with a disability. This book offers a deeper perspective, a total surrender, a true cleansing and healing, and a faith that God can better you through anything--absolutely anything--th... Read more of this blog post »
The night before my official pub date, I joined She Writes Press authors Hollye Dexter and Jo Ivester for the first official event of my book tour and of the She Writes Press tour at large.

I wrote a book that I knew was a little dark in places, but considered to be not outstandingly so, especially in this age of Grimdark.
I've read my share of GRRM and Lawrence (barely got through the dog scene). I've enjoyed @Lord Grimdark's books a lot, but I didn't consider that I might be writi... Read more of this blog post »
For those of you that don't know, I'm currently helping to organize an anthology. I'm in an interesting place with it, a place that I feel often goes unfilled. I'm not the head editor, I'm more of a go-between and trouble shooter. Its fun, and has me talking to a lot of other authors.
This piece i...Read more of this blog post »
I’ve given several interviews this past week and there is one question that came up in every single one of those interviews. What is the “secret ingredient” to my success?
People want to know how I was able to make it. Or, quite frankly, how I am able to do what I do for a living. People find it c...Read more of this blog post »

I’m 100% A blood type. I love planning, scheduling, and things that relate to them. However, I’m also a true capricorn, which then makes me more pragmatic in dealing with everyday change–only after I get upset and grumpy. Remember, I’m an A-type here.
