Hi, everyone;

This isn't an easy thing to post. In fact, it's kind of awkward, really...

I've tried hard to be a full-time writer, and have tried carefully managing my funds and my workload to maintain that goal. For a while, I succeeded...but due to an expensive series of health setbacks, I've pretty much run out of money; in a career where you have to plan and scrimp and save to stockpile enoug...

Fantastic read. Once again, we follow the life of Rachael Peng, special agent of OACET and liaison to the Washington D.C. Police. This time, however, it's gotten rather personal, as the wife of her boss and her honorary niece are kidnapped. This one ...more

“Kodan: “I had the good sense to win the hand of a woman as smart and kind as she is beautiful. If not more so.”

Tava: “You mean you had the wit to blackmail me into following you home, where you promptly stole my heart,” she teased.

Kodan: “That, too,” he agreed. “But I didn’t steal your heart. I merely exchanged it for mine.”

“Not everyone can look past an insult and continue to work with the person who slights them”
Jean Johnson

“Stumped, Ia sat there and tried to comprehend her crew’s acceptance. It was possible; it had clearly happened, but . . . she had come here expecting protests, a struggle, a fight to get at least some of them to understand . . .

“Everything alright?” Harper asked her, leaning close.

“I . . . think so?” she said, looking up at him. “Actually, everything just went . . . really well. Too well. I think I may need to worry about this for a while.”

He chuckled and shook his head. “Just accept it, Ia. If you said it’s necessary, this crew would follow you into Hell itself, no questions asked.”

“Excuse me, but I’d ask questions,” Helstead argued from his other side. “Like how many demons are we taking out, which ones we’re supposed to leave in place, and whether or not we’re taking over permanently or just visiting, and if so, for how long?”
Jean Johnson, Damnation

Jean Johnson Heheh, my hair's actually pretty tame now, back to its normal light brown, more or less. The polkadots were, hmm...a good 3-4 years ago? As for the rest of me, busy busy busy zomg busy at the moment with multiple overlapping deadline, eek! But I'm enjoying the work. Ooh, relationship with your best friend? :-) Here's hoping that works out, because those are the best kinds. You already know each other's dirty secrets and annoying/bad habits, yet you still enjoy each other's company...only now more so. *grin*


message 1: by Erin

Erin I am good! I'm in college now, just got into a relationship with my best friend 5 days ago :) Things are going well for me, and I have been loaning out the Sons of Destiny books to all my friends! How about you? How are things? Still have a crazy hairdo? For some reason, I remember you saying you had polka dots in your hair.
