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 […]

Shiny Things week of 12/10 — 12/16/2017

Shiny Things week of Dec 10-16, 2017   I haven’t been regular on my blog for quite a while, so I’m hoping to change that. What’s distracting me this week. Netflix: I’ve been getting notifications about all the cool and awesome shows coming this month and I haven’t even watched the second season of Stranger […]

Shiny Things October 3rd, 2016

There are so many Shiny Things to distract me this time of year, I don’t have time to list them all! I’ve  started writing book 5 in the CHIMERA CHRONICLES. The draft title is DRAGON’S FLAME. This is the oldest brother Kyle’s book. I had been going in reverse order, youngest to oldest, but Ky’s story […]

Me! Scary I know. So here’s the situation: you’re walking through the RWA Literacy Autographing in San Diego.

I’ll want to […]

Shiny Things1/7/2015

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 […]

Goodbye My Friends : the characters I’ll miss in 2014

As the year ends, I’ve been thinking about beloved shows that ended this year, taking with them characters I’ve come to love. Some I had only just met and actually were cancelled a few years ago, but I met them this year on Netflix and will miss them in 2014 just the same. 1. Michael […]

Too Much Television!

I get great pleasure from television (though I watch things either DVRed or on my computer for the most part.) I’m an addict really, so I started wondering a while ago, what is it about a show that makes it really click for me? Some of my favorite shows are: Supernatural– two brothers fight monsters […]
