As a writer, I think it is safe to call me firmly ensconced in the fantasy genre, but I have dabbled outside this line here and there. Or maybe within this circle is a better way to put it. Most of the romance stories I've written take place in a fantasy setting, as does the … Continue reading Mapping a Mystery

Writing Shorts: Winnie’s Wings
I have wanted to be a writer since I was very young. My life is full of countless started stories, but outside of class assignments, I didn't finish writing a full, fleshed out story until after I was out of college. I was so proud of it! Then my roommate was the one home when … Continue reading Writing Shorts: Winnie’s Wings
Roll Call! Knit Gnomes!
Last spring I hit a yarncrafting wall--and when I say "hit" I mean slammed into it at pretty much full speed.

Knit Gnomes!
Game Talk: Wrapping Up a Legacy
As terrible as this pandemic has been--and continues to be--my family has managed to make something wonderful out of it. We've instituted what I like to call Family Fun Friday. On Friday nights, we order in dinner from one of our favorite restaurants, we play a tabletop game together, and then we watch a movie. … Continue reading Game Talk: Wrapping Up a Legacy

Last year, I worked up the nerve to try submitting it, and it was purchased by Beneath Ceaseless Skies, an "online magazine dedicated to publishing literary … Continue reading First Published Story!
What I’m Working On: Yarny Things
Much like last year, I have many plans for things to knit or crochet this year. Unlike last year, I'll hopefully do better at keeping up the momentum and actually finish them all! (Or most of them. I'd settle for most of them, honestly.) I've organized the heck out of my Ravelry--did you know that … Continue reading What I’m Working On: Yarny Things
What I’m Working On: Writing
It's Pitchapalooza time! I am a long-time participant of National Novel Writing Month. While it may not be every writer's cup of tea, it certainly gives me the kick in the butt I need to write a complete first draft of a novel at least once a year. As part of the program's "Now What?" … Continue reading What I’m Working On: Writing
