Gold almost killed me

I’m an accomplished procrastinator but I never miss a deadline. Even self-inflicted deadlines are met with a panicked, coffee-fueled aggression. I finished many an essay and short story at 4am in college. Except Gold. According to my schedule, I was supposed to finish and have the ARCs out on Dec. 18th. Well that came and went. I remember telling myself it …

Hello 2018!

I’m a private person, which is funny to admit to myself. I share bits and pieces of my life, but as a naturally introverted human, I keep most everything to myself. Like most, what I do share tends to be the happy stuff. So you’re forgiven for not knowing that 2017 was an extremely difficult year for me. Some of …

Hello again!

Funny how writing can distract you from… writing! I’m going to get a lot better about posting my thoughts about writing, author life, and normal life here. It’s my own little corner of the internet and I’m happy you’re here!

The dark room echoed with scary vastness, much bigger than the rooms in which I’d been held. The man tucked in the shadows spoke up, his shadow black, just that much darker than the surrounding wall I could see …

A genuine adventure

My own nickname

I’m quick to pass judgment on everyone else, so it’s only fair I give myself a nickname for the fiasco I just created. Hi! Great to meet you. I’m Miss Pukes-on-Dick. Vivid imagery, huh? I’ll spare you the gory details. Suffice to say, as of this morning, there now exists a man out there who has his own dating horror …

It’s simple dickonomics

“Dick is abundant and low value.” This article came from the funniest source, my friend the resident lesbian, but it’s something I so desperately needed to read. Because it’s true. Very freakin’ true.  The point is simple. There are so many men out there, especially for those of us lucky enough to be dating in one of the biggest urban …
