Well, the first ten days of Inktober have come and gone. I thought it would be nice to share a bit about each stage throughout the month, especially since I’ve never done a thirty-day art challenge before. Since I was new to this whole adventure, I decided to follow the provided word prompts for each day. While in some ways it might have been easier to do my own thing, I wanted to accept the challenge of pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and not just doing faces all month (my typical preference in art). 😉 Day One...Read More

Goodness, it’s been a while! I’ve found with the craziness of school and my oldest daughter’s volleyball schedule, Instagram has been the easiest way for me to connect on social media. I do plan on getting into a better blogging routine, though. Thanks for being so patient. This past week, The Princess Bride celebrated its 30th anniversary. This movie had a huge impact on me as a child. I first saw it when I was ten years old. Aside from the fact that Westley became my first movie character crush, I loved the romance, the swordplay, the hilariously quotable...Read More
So, I’m not exactly sure what happened to the month of August here on the blog.

I’ll focus on books that are based in fantasy or fairy tale, but if I come across books in...Read More
After a long, activity-filled weekend in Reno and a few days of hiding from the intense summer heat at my parents’ air-conditioned home, I finally have the chance to share some overall thoughts on my experience at Realm Makers 2017. Some of you may have followed my Realm Makers adventure on Instagram and YouTube, so I’ll try not to repeat myself too much. My aunt and my mom were my chauffeurs and traveling companions. It was nice to relax and visit instead of keeping my eyes on the road and attempting to find places without getting lost. Directions and maps...Read More
Today’s the big day! In mere minutes, I’ll be on my way to Realm Makers, an all-speculative fiction writers conference. This year, it’s at the Atlantis Hotel in Reno, Nevada, which is rumored to have both live “mermaids” and unicorn statues. I’m all in. 😉 I’m nervous, excited, and mostly prepared. Usually, my nights are simple. My dog sleeps in his crate, my cat sleeps in my oldest daughter’s room, and my children sleep like angels. It’s only when I have somewhere to be that my cat decides to be a ninja kitty and either meow loudly or want...Read More
