Hello hello! Another semester behind me! I finished my finals last Wednesday, which also happened to be my birthday (yay!). I’m still recovering a bit from finals-brain (my head rebels and doesn’t want to take part in any sort of complex thought…a bit of a payback for stuffing it so full of information for exams, I think), but I’m working on catching up on all of my writing things. So now for a bit of an update! The last three weeks of school were so crazy that I didn’t have much time to breathe, let alone write and edit. As a result, Broken Healer isRead More →

Hello hello! I’m home for Thanksgiving! This year more than ever I am so thankful for this time at home with my family, even if this break feels a bit like an extended homework session. Ah yes, homework. I’ve got a 20 page research paper in the works (due in about two weeks…I’m trying not to think about that too closely), so I haven’t been doing much writing or editing lately. Broken Healer’s release date may have to be pushed to January, but that’s not a sure thing. I’m hoping to go through another round of edits during break as well, but it does dependRead More →

Hello hello! Once again, I’ve gone MIA without fully intending to. I blame homework. But yesterday I turned my exegetical in, and now I have a little breathing room! Although now it’s midterm season, so I should probably be careful how much breathing room I take… no matter. Today I’m celebrating freedom! And ignoring the limits to that freedom. 😉 I have a new addition to my website for you all! I finally added a page listing the books I’m working on with (very general, subject to change) release estimates. Right now I have my projects put down through next year, though I may addRead More →

Hello hello! This has been a pretty productive few weeks (if a little crazy). I think I’ve found a rhythm with school, though as always looking at my calendar for the semester gives me a bit of a shock. But my classes are in seat, my living situation this year is great (there’s a kitty!), and I love the subjects I’m studying. It helps that this is my last year, which is simultaneously super exciting and terrifying. Last weekend I got to go camping with my Mom! The place we went was beautiful, and I had a ton of fun. (It’s also why you’re gettingRead More →

Hello hello! Everybody. I have accomplished the almost impossible. I have actually met (and slightly exceeded) an estimation/goal. Today I finished the rough draft of Agonizomai Series book 3! The rough draft is a bit shorter than my last couple of books…about 76k words (the rough draft of Born in Darkness was somewhere around 90k), but there’s a big section of this book that needs some major tweaking and expansion, so it’s very likely that this book will grow significantly in the next draft. A particularly exciting bit about this particular book is that this is the fastest I’ve ever written a rough draft ofRead More →

Hello hello! Good news! I’ve made it to the climax of the next Agonizomai book! Kinda sad news, I’m moving back to Colorado for school this weekend and can’t just sit down and write until I’m finished (which is what I want to do). Instead I have to pack, and do laundry, and drive. *Sigh* But I’m close enough to the end that I might actually meet my hesitant goal and finish the rough draft before I start classes again! I think I’ve mentioned before that this is my senior year of college. Exciting! And a bit nerve wracking. I’m still not sure how muchRead More →

Hello hello! Today I finished one phase of a project I’ve been meaning to take on for months: updating my website. There’s some other fun stuff I want to add that I won’t tell you about yet (It’s not ready yet…shhhhh), but the part I finished today was adding new banners to all the pages of my website! A couple have been up for a while (you might have noticed the Welcome page has changed a bit), but I added the last two a few minutes ago. Go check them out! They’re all ink drawings I’ve done, so while they’re not the fanciest…they fit me,Read More →

Hello hello! I hope everyone’s summer is going well! This is such a weird year, and for many a very difficult year, but I hope you all have some piece of joy during these strange times. For me, it’s writing. There’s so much I usually do in the summers that I can’t do this year, including work at the Bible Camp I usually spend four weeks at. It’s sad and I’m still mourning it, but the extra time does allow me to focus more on writing my next book. Speaking of my next book, I have a writing update! Book three in the Agonzomai seriesRead More →

Hello hello! I have two pieces of good news! First, Born in Darkness is available in paperback now! Click here to see it on Amazon. Whew! That took longer than it should’ve, but life got a little crazy (well…a little more crazy). And that brings me to my next piece of good news! I’m finished with another year of college! It was a little touch and go for a while on whether or not I’d make it through with my GPA (not to mention my sanity) intact, but there were no notable fatalities, so I’m calling it a victory. (Video conference discussion classes are notRead More →

Happy Resurrection Sunday! …but in some ways it doesn’t feel very happy, does it? This year there’s no Sunrise service, singing praise to our Savior as the first rays of light break over the mountain-tops. There’s no gathering of hundreds of believers declaring in one voice that our Savior is risen. There’s no Easter lunches, talking and laughing together, adults watching children’s unbridled joy with quiet smiles. Instead there are overflowing hospitals, stay at home orders, and so much fear… This isn’t what we hoped for. This isn’t what we planned. We do what we can…drive-in Easter services, Zoom meetings with family, celebrating in ourRead More →
