So the new year is approaching and while I don’t make New Year’s resolutions anymore, the timing coincides with a resolve to stop wasting time and get more writing done and submissions sent out, as well as work on the sequel to Revenants Abroad, and finish the romance I started and have been posting at … Continue reading New Year, New Focus
My house is old. It was built in 1957, and has had precious little updating since. With an old house you expect things to go out and need repairs/replacement. It's had lots of plumbing issues over the years (although the worst turned out not to be anything specifically to do with the pipes in the … Continue reading When Door Knobs Attack
I'm still trying to settle in to my new job. I started in late October, and it really took awhile to even begin to feel like I was "one of them." I'm still paranoid about everything I do. There have been some shakeups in the upper echelons already just since I've been there (one right … Continue reading Belonging

Finally! Chapter 6 is up now on Wattpad. Thanks everyone for your patience. It's been a rough month for me, but I feel like I'm starting to pull it together again.
I see I've missed mentioning when I've posted the last few chapters of this story. It's up to Chapter 5 now on Wattpad, if you want to get caught up. This is a romance, if you're not familiar with it. Also, it is a work-in-progress, so the final product may be slightly different from what … Continue reading A World Away – Chapter 5 on Wattpad
I’ve been working my way through the original series of Star Trek, which I have always adored. My family watched it together when I was a child. It was our Friday night ritual. We’d have cheese pizza (being good Catholics, so no meat on Fridays in the late 1960s) and watch first a series called … Continue reading Star Trek and Nostalgia
