Guess Who’s Joining Wattpad Paid Stories?

When 2020 rolled around, one of my goals was to diversify my stories. Some books would be exclusive to Amazon through Kindle Unlimited while others would be available “wide,” meaning they would be available everywhere where books were… Read More

Shiny and New… Well, Almost

My late-2011 MacBook Pro has been acting up lately – it’s been too slow to do anything that I normally do (Photoshop, Ulysses, 50 tabs open on my browser, etc) until I finally decided yesterday to bite the… Read More

What Week is It?

These weird times have me not knowing what to do most days, at least when it comes to whose story to write! Instead, I’ve been baking flourless banana bread (back when all I had was bread flour but… Read More

A Bit of Nature

Another day without a laptop or a computer… can you tell? Today, LilDude and I went hiking again. Our goal was to reduce his fear of “bugs” since the last time we hiked, he was running away from… Read More

It’s Monday or Day 5 Without a Laptop…

Day 5 (or is it 6 because it feels like 6 or 60) without my laptop and I’m feeling the withdrawal symptoms already. Even though I can still type as fast on my wireless keyboard and write on… Read More

Saturday Distractions

A Lazy Saturday

With spring in session, I really should get out more. Instead, today, I spent most of the day writing especially now that it seems like my writer’s block is over and I feel like I’m trying to make… Read More

Things Will Get Better (and Other Musings)

That’s what I tell myself after this week’s many fiascos that have left me shaking my head. Hitting the wrong button to unpublish my latest release and then being unable to track down all the old links that… Read More

Rolling With the Punches

There’s nothing like a huge life lesson to teach you that sometimes things just happen and you have to roll with the punches. Between release week jitters, driving the crazy 405 to and from my South Bay office… Read More

Done and Dusted… and a Heat Wave

Two weeks ago, we put away the portable air conditioner because, you know, fall is here. Or it’s supposed to be. Well, today the temps hit the three digits and tomorrow this is what we have in store… Read More
