Project Round Up

I realized I have mentioned in passing several projects I have and am working on, but never really have given details about them. So here is a round up of all my projects. Star of Xainu Novel Status: Currently about halfway done writing Blurb: Robin is a simple thief. Well, if you can call the […]

No Writer Is An Island

, , ,

Well that is a bastardization of the old saying, but it rings true. A writer has to really actively try hard to be alone. Even if they are removed from traditional publishings, there are still editors, cover designers, beta readers, and the all important reader, among others, that are with you along the journey.

New Year's Resolutions...Or Something Like That

Like most people, I am usually terrible at keeping New Year’s resolutions. Exercise more, travel more, eat healthier, spend less time on social media, blah blah blah.

Welcome

Welcome to the physical manifestation of my headspace. Because it is that, be aware that this blog will likely run the gamut of topics. I have a diverse set of interests and enjoy talking about most of them. Anything from Hamilton to politics is fair game. (And maybe even one on why those two are […]
