I had two different people look at my writing. I got two entirely different opinions. One said I needed to leave historical references in the story. The other said to take them out because they were understood to be in the story. What to do...what to do.... Yeah, sounds about right This has been happening … Continue reading What’s Up With That?
No surprise, like most writer humans I’m probably trying to think of a way to invent a house elf that can input my edits, clean, cook and do schoolwork with my kid. I am having minimal success. However, here’s a huge tease of what I’m working on...the artist is Steve Townsend. He also does some … Continue reading Guess What?
Recently, in this glorious New Year, I had to make some cuts in my life. About 180 pounds of cuts. See, I was kinda in a thing with this guy and it didn’t dawn on me that it just wasn’t working. For about 18 years. It became tiresome and just boring from my end. The … Continue reading Don’t Be That Guy

Okay, yeah-here is the good news people-Tales of the Lost Volume 2 (a Bram Stoker Award nominated anthology) is now for sale on Amazon. It's in an ebook format for only 3.99. That's like not even a full coffee at Starbucks. And the money all goes to charity. Also, I dig it. Maybe horror isn't … Continue reading The one where I FINALLY share good news!
I think I am a crime junkie. I get upset when the ID Network takes cases they have already covered and redo them. Like put on a new dress and different make up and you get a third into it only to realize you’ve seen this. And now you’re pissed because they took up your … Continue reading Let’s Talk About Murder and Stuff
Nanowrimo is coming. I'm probably not going to participate this year as I think it's bizarre to push yourself crazy hard to get all these words written in 30 days. I may reap the benefits of Nano and use the different locations to work-depending on how these twats handle this pandemic. So far, not so … Continue reading Pin-spiration

This is the part where I'm supposed to put on a top hat and say something like, "In conjunction with Locus Magazine, I was a recipient of a grant from the Ladies of Horror Fiction." Instead, I'm a dork so it's more like, "OH MY GOD!! I GOT A GRANT! LOOK AT ME GO!!" Hey, … Continue reading Winner Winner…I Got A Grant
