Deadlines & Dryads Cover Reveal

I’m so excited to unveil the cover for Deadlines & Dryads. This cover will be used once the book is released as a solo title. Until then, it’s just eye candy. The story, however, is available right now in the Elementals Anthology, so you don’t have to wait to read it. Are you ready to… Continue Reading

My Desk, an Evolution

Remember when all you needed to be an author was this? You, your trusty pen and paper, and your imagination, and away you’d go. I’m not that old, but this is how I started writing. (Actually, I started writing stories with crayons, but we all get the point.) Then technology advanced, and writing suddenly had a… Continue Reading

Keeping the Cat Cool

Keeping the Cat Cool

Roseville just suffered through a massive heatwave. After the longest, most balmy spring in recent memory, summer kicked off with a string of 104 degree days. I’m lucky; I get to sit in my air-conditioned house, with my series of fans set up for optimal wind-tunnel effects. My outside kitty, Shyboo, is not so lucky.… Continue Reading

Attack of the Clone Moths

Attack of the Clone Moths

The winter of 2015–2016 was dry for California. We spent all last summer hearing water-shortage warnings, the city dipped into hidden, secret reservoirs of water to make sure we all had enough to drink, and we were encouraged to report our neighbors if we saw them applying water to any concrete surfaces or overwatering. It… Continue Reading

Twinge of Conscience

For Christmas, my husband got me a venus flytrap. I named her Cleo. I’ve wanted a venus flytrap for the same reason anyone wants one: they’re cool they eat insects In fact, for Cleo to thrive, she requires the blood of bugs. For the first time in my life, I’ve been worried that we haven’t had enough… Continue Reading

Post-Holiday Recovery

Post-Holiday Recovery

For Christmas, my husband and I had the flu. He got it a few days before me, but we both were in a sleep-deprived, pain-filled, cough-tastic daze on Christmas. We were awake simultaneously long enough to open socks, then back in bed until dinner. Neither of us felt like taking pictures when we finally opened presents.… Continue Reading

A Thinking Kitty

A Thinking Kitty

Everyone needs a thinking kitty. In case you’re not familiar with the term I just made up, a thinking kitty is a cat with the patience to help you work through your thoughts or who will tag along as you learn about new things. I have three cats. My two indoor cats are siblings I’ve had… Continue Reading

Intermission

Intermission

Picture this: You’re standing perfectly still in a place very familiar to you. Say, your bedroom. The air is still. It feels like the world has halted with you. But it hasn’t. In that moment, as in every moment, the earth is twirling on its axis at an incredible speed, spinning, spinning, constantly in motion.… Continue Reading

Photo Shoot

Photo Shoot

I need only the tiniest excuse to take a picture of one of my cats. My phone is filled with cat photos (and turkey photos). I especially can’t resist a cat in a sunbeam. The light makes it hard to take a bad shot, and I can easily spend a half hour snapping different pictures of my… Continue Reading
