The Books We Can’t Find

Sometimes, I get stuck on a jag. By that, I mean I get REALLY into something, and just want more and more of it. A few years ago, it was Nancy Drew. Nancy was one of my favorite childhood companions. My favorite books to read were about kids who had lots of friends and the… Continue reading The Books We Can’t Find


Cover Reveal!

That's right, it's that time again! Some of you may remember Dru from a few years ago; it was first released as a serial novella here on the blog. Searching the site will pull up the original version. Starting April 14, you'll be able to download a Kindle version, newly revised and expanded. Patrons will… Continue reading Cover Reveal!


Podcast interview!

A couple of weeks ago I was interviewed by Dianna Gunn for the Spoonie Authors Podcast. You can watch it on Youtube now, or follow this link for a transcript or audio-only download.

Video Games for Knitters

I'll admit, I'm a casual gamer at best, but I have seen several video games across platforms in the past few years that reference knitting or crafting. I haven't played most of these yet, but I'll be getting my first console in a few weeks and these are definitely on my list. Animal Crossing Pocket… Continue reading Video Games for Knitters

Giving the Boot

...A new set of boot toppers. I love my boots. But I have a weird thing, especially with my knee high boots--I hate the sound the zipper pull makes when I walk.

Would this Kill Me in the 1800s: Rh Factor

You may remember an embarrassingly long time ago, I took a poll on Twitter to see what you guys wanted to be the subject of my next WtKM1800s post to be. The winner was Rh factor. I'm sorry it's taken so long for me to get to this point, but here we are at last.… Continue reading Would this Kill Me in the 1800s: Rh Factor



I feel like all I've done so far this year is appologize to everyone for slowing down, stepping back and taking a break, but I have to do it again. If you've been following my twitter feed for the past few weeks, then you might know what's coming: we're moving from Ohio to Seattle over… Continue reading Break


Writing Check In

I've been slowly pecking away at my updated production schedule. The hardest part is that things keep having to be shuffled or moved around. I might intend to work on editing one project, but my brain will have already skipped ahead to the next item on the list, a book that needs a finished draft.… Continue reading Writing Check In
