This week, I’ve been revisiting all my old blog posts on the things that used to scare me to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Empath. It’s been especially interesting as I’ve just had a major life change – getting married last month. Taking the time to get introspective has been […]

It’s been so fascinating to revisit all the things that used to scare me. I’m celebrating the fifth anniversary of Empath, my anxiety dragon book that has been a quiet hit around the country. When the book first came out, my twenty-or-so fans were treated to a series of introspective blog […]

Empath Turns 5 – And Still Teaches Me Stuff

By |2020-05-12T08:51:28-05:00May 12th, 2020|Empath|

Five years ago today, I published a little book called Empath. It was my third published novel, a quick side-trip into my psyche in the middle of writing the Razia series. The cover featured a dragon drawn by my very talented cousin Cassondra, a wee babe at the time. […]

Yes, kids, I’m dusting off the ol’ blog machine to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Empath, my anxiety dragon book that has been a quiet hit around the country. When the book first came out, my twenty-or-so fans were treated to a series of introspective blog posts about what really […]

How The Veil Came to Be – Writing a Book In a Month

By |2019-04-07T17:35:32-05:00April 8th, 2019|Princess Vigilante|

With The City of Veils releasing next week, I thought it might be fun to revisit how this series came to be, and how much fun (or lack there of) I had writing it.

Fantasy Technology – The Gadgets of The Veil

The Economics of Forcadel – World building in Fantasy

By |2019-01-21T15:24:49-06:00March 25th, 2019|Princess Vigilante|

When I do world building in my fantasy books, I explore it from the point of view of my characters and flesh it out as I go. Around the second draft is really where I nail down what’s possible, impossible, and how things impact one another (and more importantly, how […]
