Thank you very much! I’m not sure yet what I’ll be doing next - I’m not planning to make any decisions until after I’ve finished the first draft of A Chip and a Chair and have had some time to decompress. The Seven of Spades journey has been amazing, but also very stressful! ;-)
I do know that I’l...Read more of this blog post »

But I must admit, I love the things of evil art
The black wing shadows of demon bats
And satanic gypsies burning, satanic dance
The black witch gazes in her crystal ball
Communing with the dead on Halloween night
It's not the candy in their bags
That widen... Read more of this blog post »

Twenty years ago, two people said "I do" and set forth on the adventure of a lifetime. Those two people became my parents.

Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008. It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are...
You know, I’m beginning to understand why Jenelle was laughing so hard when she passed this award category on to me. She said it would be easy. HA!

Todo esto empezó porque me pidieron un prólogo.
No soy muy amiga de los prólogos. Los prólogos y yo tenemos una relación parecida a la relación entre la protagonista de una comedia romántica para adolescentes y su némesis rubia y popular. No suelo leerlos hasta terminar el libro (¿y si hay aleron...Read more of this blog post »
Ma ei suuda uskuda, kuidas aeg on lennanud. Alles ma ju maadlesin käsikirja mustanditega, kustutasin lauseid, lõike ja peatükke. Nüüd on aga “Taeva tühjad tribüünid” peaaegu käega katsuda ja üsna varsti on minu seitsmes raamat trükitud ja teel poelettidele.
Nagu tavaks saanud, kuulub ka seekord i...Read more of this blog post »

Van “zouden we eens geen podcast beginnen?” tot de eerste tien afleveringen van “Werk & Leven” ingeblikt hebben, het lijkt alsof mijn ravissante co-host Anouck en ik met onze ogen knipperden en het eerste seizoen was in de sjakos.

Hey sweets, if it’s not under tagged/spoken-word then it’s lost deep in the depths of my blog, sorry.
This thoughtful article by Cole Brown challenges our small groups to stop talking about the Bible so the Bible might talk to us. He writes:

A sweet warm fall night, Sunday in New York, and my love and I stood outdoors with friends who, like us, had caught Paul Simon’s farewell show and were still in awe of it, a 76-year-old singer in peak form for two and one-half hours nonstop with his eminent folk orchestra. John Keats died at 25,...Read more of this blog post »

From Wikipedia: Purple prose is criticized for desaturating the meaning in an author’s text by overusing melodramatic and fanciful descriptions. As there is no precise rule or absolute definition of what constitutes purple prose, deciding if a text, passage, or complete work has fallen victim is...Read more of this blog post »

Some time ago, a certain former pro football player was put on trial for murdering a couple people. Actually, the story began before that; most folks that were around back then remember watching a white Ford Bronco try to elude police in real time.

Let’s talk about people. Not random strangers or the fabulous old guy I saw at the bus stop today shouting at passing cars, but those writerly people other writerly people can’t do without… or shouldn’t do without. (This is going somewhere, I swear.)
