Apologies for the bombardment of new chapters  of Trials of The Hunt tonight, Christmas Eve. When the muse hits, she demands action! I have been inactive for while now and she was getting tired of me dragging my feet at this stage of the serial.



Hello and Welcome Back!

It’s been a whirlwind of a spring/summer at home this year. Taking time off for our various important days and vacations was a real refresher.

I finally got a chance to recharge my creative batteries and get over the writer’s block that had plagued me in the spring. Meeting new people at GenCon and even leaving the country to travel abroad was such a departure from our usual routines, it all came together to re-ignite my passion for writing and for these characters I care so much about.
I found that I missed poor, tortured Gannon. Time off gave me the clarity to continue the story lines and world building that I had begun years ago with renewed vigor and I love being back!

If you are new to the series, Trials of The Hunt, visit the page and start with Chapter 1. If you have been waiting for the chapters to pick back up, start with Chapter 45. I have many great things in store for the blog and the serial in the very near future and I’m excited to share with my readers!

Happy reading!


Working at home…at night…ugh!

my shift key

Working on a project from home. Sure I get the overtime, but man is it tiring. I type all day, practically, and I get dinner and driving break, then right back at it around 7. It will be good for this presentation to go live and be done with! I may have some free time to do a little research and post an actual in-depth blog post.

Till then, I’m still in the land of the living, just not as active on the blog as I’d like to be. Still posting chapters of The Wild Hunt, though. That’s one project not going anywhere anytime soon!!

Definitely file this one under Real Life!


Autumn Return!

It’s been a long summer, but I’m back! I missed the routine, but it was good to take time off. We celebrated two birthdays, a wedding anniversary, several midnight movies (and yes, midnight movies are worthy of celebration), and one week of vacation. It was a tough schedule. There was no way I could have kept up with the rigors of posting twice a week and holding to that very busy schedule. All that sunshine and nice weather would have been tough to pass up. too!

Now that I’m back, I’m ready to go! I’ve got so many chapters in the can, edited and ready for public consumption. Thanks to all my loyal readers for sticking out this summer vacation!



Busy Summer…
