2018 came and went in a blur. I spent a little time this morning reflecting over my goals for the year and whether or not I could consider them complete. Happily, I can say my two biggest goals for 2018 were met, and I'm looking forward to conquering my 2019 goals this...

It's finally, finally here! Fall, y'all! 

October is officially my favorite month, but it's only because it brings the first cool snap here in Texas...and pumpkins. I love pumpkins. This year our cold front came a little later than in the past, but I'm not complaining--...

It's a strange thing I've never quite been able to grasp. It isn't something you can buy or collect and store for later. It's a feeling, a quality, that can affect every aspect of your life. And, oddly, you can have it in some areas and lack it in others. Yo...

I finally got around to finishing these annotated notes, and I'm so excited to share them with you. One of my favorite things to read about in author interviews or blog posts are inner thoughts about the pieces of their stories. What were they thinking about when they...

I've been diligently working on my latest novel I have creatively named PROJECT THREE. No, that is not the final title, it's just what I'm currently calling this unnamed novel until I figure it out.

Today I was going through some pictures, and I realized I never posted anything about my research trip to Fredericksburg, Texas. How did that never happen? Well, I'm going to make up for it today.

When I was writing THE HAUNTING OF RED BLOOD HILL, I ran into a few probl...

I read quite a bit, and I love sharing what I'm reading! I've been on a YA kick here recently. Here are some of the books I've read the past few weeks.
