This post about my blog was updated on July 28, 2020, to include new content.
Welcome to my blog! Writers write more than we publish. My mind is brimming with ideas and the attic is groaning with half-finished manuscripts—but only one children’s book and one adult book are even close to publishable quality. Hence my blog. Not only can I create and post a complete, polished piece in hours, but the comments let me interact with real, living humans instead of a keyboard. It’s a win for potential readers, too. They can sample my writing for free before spending their hard-earned cash on a novel. Check out my posts, and if you like them, subscribe to receive each post via e-mail!
WHAT IS IN MY BLOG?
Humor! Everything here has a glimmer of humor, and sometimes even two glimmers!
Nature is my favorite topic because I studied wildlife biology in college and worked in the environmental field. This is also why all my novels include at least a glimpse of the natural world. Besides, writing about it provides me with the perfect excuse for abandoning my computer to go hiking. (I call it research.)
In “My Life as a Writer,” I share my thoughts about conferences, classes, and website malfunctions. And this will be the section in which I update readers on the progress of my manuscripts.
I’m addicted to reading. But I can rationalize this addiction by using it in my blog. In the book review section, I share my thoughts about books I’ve finished and loved. I’m especially excited that I’ll be narrowing my scope to books like those I write: paranormal cozy mysteries for adults and magical adventures for middle-schoolers.
I fully intend to add a blog category someday that will discuss magic and the supernatural. Unfortunately, this may have to wait until a ghost moves into the attic or I buy a haunted antique. But I’m working on it.
