Recap: Superstars Writing Seminars 2018

Okay, so this conference happened at the end of January…yes, JANUARY! Better late than never on this review, right? One of the reasons I did still want to do this review though is because this is the best writing conference I’ve ever been to. Seriously. My neighbor has gone many times before and she was always telling me how would I like it and … Read More Recap: Superstars Writing Seminars 2018


New Article Published: How to Be Mindful at the Barn and Around Your Horse

I wanted to share that I recently had a new article published on 2kGrey‘s blog, Intrepid International. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been riding horses for over fifteen years, I compete in local shows in San Diego, and I have two horses of my own. My journey with horses has been so wonderful. I’ve learned so much from every horse I’ve … Read More New Article Published: How to Be Mindful at the Barn and Around Your Horse


Writing Project Wednesday: Trains

I think I grew up knowing more than the average person about trains. My dad used to work for the railroad and there was always a healthy appreciation for these iron horses in our house. Sadly, the age of the train has long been on the decline. It was such a treat to get to research trains during their heyday! I’m sharing a few … Read More Writing Project Wednesday: Trains


Writing Project Wednesday: The Unsolved Murders of the Burnham and Wayne Families

On one of my trips home to Colorado, I popped into Barnes & Noble to kill some time and I decided to look at the local section. I ended up going home with a slim book called Ghosts of Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak by Stephanie Waters. I almost never read horror. I don’t like scary movies and I like scary books even less. … Read More Writing Project Wednesday: The Unsolved Murders of the Burnham and Wayne Families


Writing Project Wednesday: Gibson Girls

On my last Writing Project Wednesday, I said I was going to talk about one of Colorado Springs’ creepiest unsolved murders. Which I will do, but while working on my book last weekend, I found myself researching women’s hairstyles form the 1890’s and stumbled across the Gibson Girl. I’d heard the term Gibson Girl before, but I never knew what it meant or what … Read More Writing Project Wednesday: Gibson Girls


An Evening With Neil Gaiman in Review

In an effort to become a better writer, I’ve been doing a lot of things lately that are kind of outside my comfort zone: 1. I joined a writer’s group. I’m still not sure why they like me, but I’ve spent enough time around horses to know not to look a gift horse in the mouth! 2. I went to a writer’s conference. Which … Read More An Evening With Neil Gaiman in Review

New Adventures

Alright guys. I’m finally done moving. Still reading Game of Thrones. But I haven’t forgotten about you/this blog. I also started writing as a contributor this website, Dressage Daily. It’s a website about horses and the sport I do, dressage. My first article was published on Monday.   Also, for some reason my Twitter has been getting a lot of activity. So if you … Read More New Adventures

10Ks, Mud Runs, Writing, and Overcoming Obstacles

I’m somewhere in the mire of Book 4 of A Song of Ice and Fire, while moving, working, and existing. Things on the reading and writing front are slow-going at the moment. But here’s a little something for you to read in the meantime. Recently, I ran my first 10K. And not just any 10K (that’s 6.2 miles for all you who don’t remember … Read More 10Ks, Mud Runs, Writing, and Overcoming Obstacles

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Memories

As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Bookish Memories. These aren’t all technically about books, so much as memories about literature events AND books. There are sooo many, but here are some of my top picks. 1) I got asked to prom with a book. – For my senior prom, the guy … Read More Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Memories

Elsewhere on the internet…

This is pretty old news, but I never made a formal announcement about it here. I now have my own dedicated Facebook author page. Likes are appreciated. ❤ And…. I have my own website! I made it myself and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

Reading of The Unicorn’s Girl

I posted this short story a few months ago, but a couple weeks ago, I got the chance to read it in front of an audience.
