Listening to:  THE UNHINGED playlist

Mood: Accomplished 

I'm super excited to have finished polishing THE UNHINGED, my dark YA Fantasy about a girl who sells secrets on the black market, but unbeknownst to her lives two separate lives. Think Jason Bourne meets Jessica Jo...

Listening to:  Sia – 1000 Forms of Fear

Mood:  Accomplished

Over the last six months or so, I set aside my current WIP to do some heavy revisions on another manuscript near and dear to me (aren’t they all, though). The manuscript had a lot of work to be done, almost a se...

Listening to: Snow Ghosts – A Small Murmuration

Mood: Restless


I have a lot of ideas. A lot of words in my head aching and clawing and screaming to get out. For me, the hardest part about writing isn’t things like “writer’s block.” No, it’s deciding which of the voices,...

*I’m posting a day early since I won’t be around tomorrow*


I’ve decided I need to take a break. Not from writing in general, but from my current WIP Gothic Horror.  And not a break like I’m completely stopping, more as...

Listening to:  Poe - Hello

Mood: Hopeful


I was down in San Diego a few weeks ago visiting family and friends—generally making mischief and having a good time—and of course the inevitable question about whether or not I’m published yet came up as I chatted with friends o...

Listening to:  Sara Bareilles – Little Voice

Mood: Content


I was MIA last week, mostly because I finished my YA Fantasy and needed to take a break. I likely won’t touch the ms again for at least a couple weeks so that way when I go back to do a round of edits before I s...

Listening to:  Fiona Apple - When the Pawn...

Mood:  Wistful


I have a mind like a steel trap. No, seriously. I joke about this with my friends and family a lot. I’m sure sometimes my Hubs wishes I didn’t have such a great memory (because occasionally I remind him of thi...
