Fear and NaNoWriMo

Since it’s NaNoWriMo, I’m going to share a writing struggle. Every one of the Chimera Chronicles was inspired by something. 1. In Like a Lion has heavy the Pretender overtones. 2. Entity Mine was inspired by an episode of Discovery channel’s old A Haunting. 3. The Lion’s Share is inspired by an episode of Supernatural […]

she went to the RWA literacy autographing and saw this!

Me! Scary I know. So here’s the situation: you’re walking through the RWA Literacy Autographing in San Diego. I know you want to get the big names autographs, but when you’re done, if you like shifters, stop by and say hello to me. I’ll be wearing this (Pictured above): my Supernatural T-shirt. I’ll want to […]

Shiny Things June 28, 2016

A look at the things distracting me this week. My books arrived in the mail! It’s lovely to hold your physical book in your hands. The thrill never goes away! I’m busy as a beaver working on getting Lion’s Prey ready for its August release. I hope the extra weeks I took will translate into a […]

All My Favorite People Are Dead

Or I guess I should say that they don’t exist. You see, though of course I love my family and friends, a large number of my loved ones are fictional characters. Many people get excited about meeting the actors who play characters they love, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki from Supernatural for example, but for […]

Those who’ve read a number of my blogs know I do most of my writing on the treadmill (Which doesn’t make me thin, just keeps me healthy), but here’s what it looks like when I write from my couch. This is my brindle basenji Ranger on my lap. Our vizsla Lali usually pushes in too, […]

Shiny Things April 16, 2016

Today I redo what I wrote yesterday. We writers are used to re-writing, but I went to edit a simple error–the date from yesterday–and managed to erase my whole blog! The thing is I’m not a newbie at this whole computer thing… Moving on… Buenos Dias, amigos! Today I am peeking out from my editing […]

Am I crazy? Shiny things Thursday May 24

The third and fourth books, in the Chimera Chronicles series will be released by Soul […]

Shiny Things January 7, 2015 Things that are distracting me this week… Galavant on ABC. With music by Alan Menken, a pretty cast, and hilarious lyrics and one-liners, this irreverent cross between Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Once Upon a Time is not to be missed by musical fans! And we Psych and […]

Shiny Things 1/1/2015

Shiny Things January 1st 2015 Things interesting me this week: The old year. New Year’s is always a time for reflection. Shortly after the start of 2014, I got the shingles. I still have some neuropathy (pain in the nerves) from that, so I suggest everyone get the shingles shot. They’ll tell you it’s uncommon […]
