Remember How I Said I Got Slammed By A New Story?

You know.  I was happily writing This Betraying Flesh.  Got stuck.  Accidentally wrote a novel, a novella (soon to be novel), a novella, an novella, and plotted out a whole series?  You know those slutty little ideas that steal into your mind when you're SUPPOSED to be writing This Betraying Flesh which you've been fighting with for… Continue reading Remember How I Said I Got Slammed By A New Story?

Who is this now?

Oh that's right me. I'm pretty sure I'm writing this. . . Life. Life. You know? Life. So for quick, emotionless updates.  On being a foster parent: it's hard.  On being a daughter: it sucks to have my parents across the country.  On being a mommy: awesome.

In honor of this post, I thought I'd ignore the whole foster parenting doo-dah and give my own book… Continue reading This is my 100th post.


What do you find scary?

I've been thinking about this for a while.  Not actually scary--like public speaking or death or heights or what not.  But fictional scary.  Silence of the Lambs, ghost stories around the camp fire.Scary to me?  That part of Signs with Mel Gibson when the alien's fingers curl up from under the pantry door.  The piece of The… Continue reading What do you find scary?
