By day, Lauricia Matuska is a mild-mannered teacher of high school literature and creative writing. By night she is a clandestine writer, fighting battles against time and responsibility to steal precious moments in which to compose the next pages of her current novel-in-progress. She first discovered the realm of fantasy by traveling with Lucy through the wardrobe to Narnia. Since then, she has established dual-residency between that world and this one, and currently serves as an ambassador to contemporary youth and young adults. The Healer's Rune is the first novel in her Ceryn Roh trilogy.

The only time I'm truly "blocked" is when something in the story isn't working as I hoped/planned. Otherwise I'm usually not blocked, just lazy.

When I am truly blocked, I divide my available time between reading stories in my favorite genre that I know are well written and reading how-to books about writing, especially about plotting. I also spend a lot of time brainstorming on paper: clustering, writing questions and answers in a flow-chart style, and drawing different plot diagram possibilities are my go-to techniques.(less)

As summer is binge-reading time, I have a stack of books I’d like to share with y’all (for those who don’t speak Texan, that’s you + all: y’all).





A stack.





Unfortunately, there are more books than there are days to read them in a lifetime. I can’t share insights to everything I’ve recently read and loved, but I can bend the rules a little today and tell you about two (instead of my usual one): Fair

A breath-takingly beautiful, tragically heartbreaking murder mystery/romance. A definite recommendation for mature audiences. However, I must include a trigger warning. Some scenes contain abuse and rape, and the protagonist is abandoned at an early ...more

Henry David Thoreau
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
