When I was first inspired to write the Origins Series it was a fluke. The entire idea sprang to life from a picture of it's own unusual origins...

I saw a handsome man who had dark eyes wearing a broad black hat, cape and nothing else. It was an artistic statement, I am sure, but it felt dark and... Read more of this blog post »

It's such a strange coincidence...While I began to edit and improve my oldest story (Apocalypse), all these strange events started happening on Earth. I was specifically working on the cover when I found out there was to be a total solar eclipse, which we sadly missed because of our location.Anyw... Read more of this blog post »

I had to read over 300 pages this weekend. . . for school. I don't mean to complain, the truth is I am having a blast with my program, and I enjoy being challenged because I'm actually learning from it, but it sucks having free time at the end of the day when you're already exhausted and you have...

We all do. The first thing you look at is the cover. Have you ever bought a book just because you like the cover? I sure have and I’ve put the book back because I didn’t like the cover. Guilty as charged!

So since covers matter and I sincerely think they do, what kind of cover on a book do you lik... Read more of this blog post »

Cecily Wolfe Cecily Wolfe's blog:


My review (here and on Amazon): While I liked some of these stories better than others, this collection starts off with a page-turner, and continues to be engaging. These stories just go to show that you don't know what is going on in someone's head - even if you think you do - and that everyday... Read more of this blog post »

The Reason You're Alive by Matthew Quick “Quick masterfully skewers bias from both the left and the right with humor and grace …. The book is funny, tragic, hopeful and shows how our polarized views keep us from truly seeing that we’re all more alike than different.” LaSalle News Tribune http://www.newstrib.com/lifestyle/boo...

If the blog/website looks a little different, that's because it is. I decided a change was in order, and I wanted a clean look with a black and white theme. So, that's what I worked on for three days straight, and I quite like the changes.

Got an e-mail last night from someone asking me to fill in for a teacher who felt he/she needed some support. I remembered how relieved I had been when I gave up teaching in the weekend school. I guess those feelings are common, and not just an indication of my shortcomings as a teacher.

It’s no secret that the Catholic Church in the Western world has experienced a tremendous drop in practicing members over the past 50 years. More troubling—and not unrelated—is the fact that the desire to gain more members via evangelization has declined even more tremendously. In the 60’s and 70...

Writing with a full-time job takes dedication. You have to make time to write because “finding” time is nearly impossible. And when we do get writing time, it is sacred.
