In that case, there really is no end to what we can do. Writing is ever changing, always expanding, never ending. As a writer, I get to be all of that, too.

Little Women (and the power of relating)

If you've been on the internet at all the last few weeks, you've probably seen a trailer advertised for the 2019 Little Women movie. Maybe you've even seen friends lending their opinions to social media. I'm here to add my voice to the crowd in praising it as a film but also diving into why I found it to be so masterful.


I was thrilled to see Little Women nominated for a host of Academy Awards, Read more of this blog post »

Really enjoyed the adventure, intrigue, broodiness, and camaraderie. It felt like Robin Hood meets Merlin ... (with a dash of Outlander). It's got some great characters, and I'm looking forward to seeing them again in the sequel!

Abigayle Claire, Martin Legacy

“So what do you do on the days you can’t move on?”
Julie smiled, though it wobbled a little. “Trust God and try again tomorrow.”
Abigayle Claire, Martin Legacy

“None of us here deserved God’s saving grace either, but we accepted it anyway because we needed it,” he continued. “Life isn’t about deserving things. It’s about doing the best we can with what we have.”
