It's been many moons since I popped by with any news. It's been a busy few months- Dayjob projects, flu and then stomach flu in my house, lots of travel and of course a small musical you may have heard of. But I'm not here to brag about Hamilton, but rather, I finally got my contributor copy … Continue reading New flash fiction!
I've fallen into the time suck that is summer in the Pacific Northwest. We're blessed with days that stretch until nearly 10 p.m. (and dawn well before 5 a.m., yikes!) and when I haven't been eating blueberries off the bushes in my backyard while pretending to do yard work, reading romance novels in the hammock, … Continue reading New flash fiction, interviews, and more!
It's no secret that flash fiction is my first love. I stumbled on crafting short stories as a child and then later in college in two separate short story seminars, but it was always just a flirtation.

I've never … Continue reading New flash fiction “Graylight”
My life has been a cross between chaos and a situation comedy lately, so in between my mom-fog and putting the final touches and doing legal legwork for SECRET HEART, I completely forgot that my flash fiction piece, "Agenda" was publishing today over at 200 cc's. This was the first short story I wrote after … Continue reading New Flash Fiction: “Agenda”
If there's one thing I seem to write about more than anything lately, it's motherhood. It's hard not to write about what consumes your life 24/7/366 (Leap Year, holla!) I wrote about my mom in 2014 and about my first Mother's Day last year. This year I wrote about celebrating Mother's Day in the hospital for Preemie … Continue reading Mother’s Day Musings
So I have a bit of good news to share. I've been sitting on it for quite a few weeks months, yet telling everyone I know about it. I can no longer consider writing to be an expensive hobby that was draining both my soul and my bank account, because as of this week, someone … Continue reading Breaking News: This is No Longer the Expensive Hobby I Feared It Was
