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 →

Hello hello! Once again it’s been too long since my last post… and now I’ll explain the reason for that! Last Thursday my university notified us that we’re going online for the rest of the semester because of the Coronavirus, and that we all needed to be moved out of our apartments by Spring Break. So I spent that weekend furiously packing, looking for storage, and figuring out how in the world I’m going to write an exegetical and two research papers without access to my university’s library. I even had to skip my Friday morning writing. 🙁 But! I’m home now, and thankfully IRead More →

Hello hello! Snow day!!! Well, sort of. My university opened late, and since all of my classes today are in the morning, that meant I got to sit around in my pj’s drinking coffee and doing (surprise surprise) homework. Sigh. At the moment, though, I’m procrastinating on the rest of my homework to write this post, even though I’m not completely sure what to write about. Writing news is pretty much the same…finished another round of editing for Born in Darkness, working on cover ideas, writing my next book…same ole, same ole. Next post I might have Born in Darkness’s release date narrowed down toRead More →

Hello hello! I’m back at school now, already through my first week of classes. Syllabus shock has knocked me down as I look at all the assignments on my calendar and wonder how exactly I’m going to write that many papers in so few months, and it has faded as I settle into classes, sign up for paper deadlines, and trust God to carry me through to another summer. It’s gonna be hard, but then every semester is hard. Onto writing…remember in my past post, when I said I never truly know which story I’ll write next until I begin? I’ve started my next book,Read More →
