Author and Editor

Month: July 2016


Narrated version here I’ve been out about everything else, may as well be out about this. I’m physically challenged, disabled, differently abled. Specifically, I have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia and have since I turned 27 (a long time ago). I’d had the condition for close to 10 years before finally achieving a diagnosis in the time… Read More ›


Novel Aesthetics

So while my other WIP’s were cooking this afternoon I played with the collage maker again for #novelaesthetics. The Ilavanian World.

On Rejection: From an Aspie Writer

I’m pretty open about having Aspergers. I’m so grateful that agents are asking more and more for #ownvoices writers to submit their work. Yet, because they’re asking for our writing, it might help if they knew how someone neurodiverse might think about rejections. *Not an expert, and not everyone is out, so if there are… Read More ›

Pantsing vs outlining

A friend of mine asked me how have I switched from ‘pantsing’ a novel to ‘outlining’?

I’ve always written… Read More ›

Website ho!

I updated the website, and it wasn’t that hard, go me! In other news, I have three Works In Progress that are my daily grind. I’m writing a gender bent fairy tale, and a historical paranormal romance set in medieval France. Getting to know my new characters is as much fun as it always is,… Read More ›
