Just a short and sweet update today featuring a couple of things.
When life gets too heavy, it’s whimsy to the rescue! I wrote an article about the importance of whimsy in our everyday lives. Everything is made better with some whimsy, right? You can find the article over at The Spa Insider. Continue reading
I got together recently with Celine Jeanjean (a fantastic author and lovely gal) and chatted about A Shadowed Spirit, character creation, and Hazel and Holly too. It was a rather laid back interview, and good fun! You can read it over on her blog, Down the Rabbit Hole.
I met Sarah Zama during last year’s A to Z Challenge. Her blog immediately stood out with her posts about the Roaring Twenties and all that the period entailed–Prohibition, flappers, speakeasies, the birth of jazz. I learned a lot from her during that challenge, not the least of which was an introduction to the dieselpunk genre. I had honestly never heard of it before. So, when she approached me about participating in the blog tour for her upcoming novella–Give in to the Feeling–I felt like it would be an excellent opportunity to learn more about dieselpunk. I mean, I can’t be the only one that doesn’t know anything about it, right? Right? So, I interviewed her about it. It was a lot of fun, and Sarah gave a lot of great insight. So, if you’re like me and don’t know anything about dieselpunk, hopefully you’ll enjoy this interview as much as I did. Continue reading
Today I’ve had my very first interview featured over at Celine Jeanjean’s blog, Down The Rabbit Hole.
I met Celine during the A to Z Challenge this year, and she immediately struck me as a fun, whimsical sort. You know, my kind of gal.

In it, we talk about the research I did for The Thirteenth Tower, and some fun little tidbits of information I uncovered during the process. Head on over there to check it out!
I had the good fortune of bumping into Jasmine Angell when she followed me on Twitter. I headed over to her blog and was intrigued not only by her book, but also her fabulous cake-making ability. I was smitten, and totally delighted when she approached me for an interview. Read on to get acquainted with this fascinating and multi-talented Young Adult Fantasy author.
In an ongoing effort to help promote authors, I’ve decided to try out doing author interviews. My very first guest is a writer of horror short fiction–the delightful and intriguing Angeline Trevena. Welcome, Angeline!
Tell us a little about yourself. Any interesting talents, hobbies, or wonderful quirks that are uniquely you?
I am probably the least likely horror writer you’ll ever meet. I’m terrified of the dark. If I ever need to get up in the night, I do so with my heart racing. I avoid looking at the dark mirror, avoid peering into the darkest corners of the room, jump into bed in case there’s something hiding underneath it. One evening, while writing a short story, there was a thunderstorm, and I managed to seriously creep myself out!
