I was lucky. Growing up, I always knew what I wanted to do with my life. I've been reading since I was three, and I've been addicted to books since. It was only natural for me to go one step further with the one thing I love and become a writer. I started… Continue reading The Inner Child
In case you missed my recent posts, we moved a few weeks ago. For most people it means piles of boxes, maybe some new furniture, and the hope of a new life. For me, it means my whole writing schedule is thrown out of whack. Again. The biggest pain about this move was… Continue reading New House, New Writing Spots
Hello my lovely readers! I'm so sorry you had to survive so long without me, but I have decided to grace you all with my virtual presence once more. We've had a busy couple of weeks. We successfully transplanted ourselves to southern California, though we still have a bit of unpacking left to do. We… Continue reading I’m Baaa-aaack!
I've been crazy busy lately, and I'm only going to get busier as the days go by. If you didn't know, Husband of Mine is graduating next week and we'll be officially moving back to California for good! I'm excited to go back home, but it also means that we're moving again and I… Continue reading Packing and packing and packing….
Last week was a rough week for me emotionally and physically. My depression was kicking in hard, along with my migraines. Both have caused me a lot of grief.

I've been having a really rough week full of migraines. I was totally feeling great. Yesterday. Then, once again, I didn't sleep and now I find myself laying on the couch in my pajamas because I can barely stand up. Luckily, I have an adorable puppy to take care of me when I can't… Continue reading A Few Things…

My dad worked at Walt Disney Imagineering for 3 1/2 years working on this "secret project"- And he's worked for them… Continue reading Why Frozen Should Be Forgotten
Three blog posts in a row? Yep. It's that kind of week. And I still haven't shared any LTUE panels. I've got a lot to say right now, so bear with me. I was going to wait until tomorrow to blog this, but it's been weighing on me so much and I couldn't focus… Continue reading Mental Illness
It's been a while since I've done some free writing, and today I'm battling major Hypergraphia. So it was fairly easy for me to pick a blog post topic today. Originally I wasn't going to pick a prompt, but I had a really hard time channeling my Hypergraphia into something productive. I'll explain at… Continue reading Free Write #8: A Fairy’s Tale
Remember last November when I got to meet Shannon Hale and get my Books of Bayern series signed? That was an awesome day. July 2012- Husband of Mine (at the time he was Boyfriend of Mine) was in Oklahoma working for his great-grandparents, and I was working in California for the summer.… Continue reading Meeting Authors
