Hello hello! Another couple of as-normal-as-you-can-get-during-a-pandemic weeks have passed, and not too much has changed. I’m still writing a lot, but I’m also working on an online literature class, so that does cut into my writing time somewhat. Still, I should break 50,000 words by the end of the week, if not today. To celebrate progress, and because I don’t have much I can think to say today (it’s too hot for deep thought…why in the world does that rhyme?!?! *sigh* English), I’m giving you guys another excerpt from Agonizomai Series book 3! (It has a title, but I’m not sure if it’s the realRead 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! In my last post I promised some information on the book I’m writing now that Born in Darkness is out, and now I’m here to follow through! Before I tell you what it is, though, a bit of a funny story… I have started four books since finishing Born in Darkness. Yes, four. Only two have more than a few disjointed scenes. I think I’ve figured out which one is my main project for the next few months, but…yeah. It’s been interesting. All of that aside, what’s my next book? Book 3 of the Agonizomai series! This book will jump back to theRead 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! 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 →

Hello hello! Here we are, almost a week into the 2020, and I’m happy to report that there have been no near-death experiences of note this time. So instead I’m writing the semi-obligatory “author year reflection” that everyone seems to do. I’ve never really done one of these before (not officially, at least) so bear with me. Alright, here we go! In 2019 I finished writing two novels, a new record for me. The rough draft of Born in Darkness, my longest book yet even in the first draft, took eight months for me to write. That’s definitely a new record, especially since I’ve beenRead More →

Hey! So, once again I missed my normal post time, but this time I have a semi-respectable reason! The weekend I meant to post an update I was home for Thanksgiving Break (which was wonderful!). That alone means more distractions, but this time I faced the slight problem of a power outage. And then our internet was out. Ahem. Like I said, semi-respectable. I have news to make up for it, though… over break I finished the rough draft of Born in Darkness!!! It clocked in at over 92,000 words, my longest book yet, and I’m already working on adding more scenes to flesh outRead More →

Only two weeks and two more papers between me and freedom! (“freedom” I have homework I have to do over break, but I’m choosing to ignore that at the moment.) Thanksgiving is so close I can…almost…touch it… And then I can be home with my family and my kitty cats! Oh man I’m excited. But my upcoming break from school isn’t the only light at the end of the tunnel…I’m also getting excitingly (that’s a word, right?) close to finishing the rough draft of Henry’s book! For those who follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you probably saw that I broke 80,000 words on Friday!Read More →

Hello hello my friends! Can you taste Fall in the air? At this point I can’t tell if it’s actually feeling like Fall or if it’s just my wishful thinking, but I am ready. Ready for frosted mornings melting into warm afternoons, ready for that fresh sent of drying leaves and brown grass on the breeze, ready for sweaters and pumpkins and the glorious colors that feed my soul… Well, enough with that… onto the real subject of this post! Another faery story! Yes, I finally have my act together enough to release another one! (In my defense, this is by far the longest ofRead More →

Hello hello! Welp. I’m back in Denver, and less than a week away from another bundle of classes (I’m kind of tipping back and forth between excited and terrified because all the shiny new knowledge! But also so many assignments…). Hopefully once I get into the rhythm I can attack the rest of Henry’s story with a vengeance (an appropriate term to use for his story, but more on that later… 😉 ). I’m over half-way through and I’m SO excited for what comes next! It’s so much fun, guys…Henry may steal first place for my favorite character to write and know (if he hasn’tRead More →
