J.M. Hackman loves thunderstorms, bookstores, and happy endings. She’s never met a reading nook she didn’t like and prefers soul talk to small talk. When she’s not writing, she spends time with her two munchkins and her handsome husband who supports her in this crazy profession.
Her short stories have been published in the anthologies Realmscapes, Mythical Doorways, and Tales of Ever After. Her YA fantasy Spark (Book One of The Firebrand Chronicles) was released in 2017 from L2L2 Publishing. She spends her days writing stories, consuming massive quantities of dark chocolate, and looking for portals to other worlds.

If I get stuck on a plot point, I'll write out all the different variations of what could happen, and sometimes I'll discuss it with my family, as well.
If it was a true case of writer's block where nothing was happening, I'd go do something I love. Go for a walk, talk to a friend, do some crafting, watch my favorite movie -- anything to get my creative juices flowing again.(less)

I usually fall asleep while reading nonfiction--not this time. This book was like sitting down with the author over a cup of tea (or coffee) & chatting about life, craft, family, etc.
He also includes a few Hollywood experiences--real eye-openers.

What an amazing retelling! I sat down last night and finished it in about two hours! Clancy's writing illuminates the characters and I found myself hurting for True--the young girl who'd never had the chance to finish her childhood.

Christian Specula...: * Review Session 2 — COMPLETED 187 51 Aug 15, 2018 06:51AM  
“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
