In my progress post at the end of January, I mentioned that I had finally figured out the ending to my YA romantic fantasy, Facing the Music. After spending a bit of time reading over old notes and giving it thoughts, I finally took the plunge on February 4 and put pen to paper (fingersContinue reading “February 2023: Two fifths of a novel!”

January 2023: Off to a good start!
Monthly updates, can I manage that? I seem to manage it on my review blog, so maybe I can manage it here as well. Given that I was overseas until a week ago, I was generally planning for February to be when I got back into writing for the year. But then on January 12,Continue reading “January 2023: Off to a good start!”
Happy 2023, everyone! At the start of every year, I try to choose a word that will be my theme for the next twelve months. This year’s word is REPLENISH. After the year that was, my main priority this year is to refill the creative well, as well as take more time for myself andContinue reading “2023: Replenish”
Merry Christmas from Max, Clara and me.
Hello from Budapest, Hungary! I’m in about week six of a ten-week European tour, and at the moment I’m especially looking forward to seeing The Nutcracker at the Hungarian State Opera on Christmas Day. Knowing that this was coming up, I was struck by the idea of Clara and Max going to see The Nutcracker.Continue reading “Merry Christmas from Max, Clara and me.”
New Release: Where the Weird Things Are Vol. 1
Hi everyone! I’ve had a very stressful couple of months but we’re coming out of that now, and I have an announcement! My short story “Sign Me Up” is featured in Deadset Press’s new anthology, Where The Weird Things Are Volume 1. It features a public servant in a job she hates on a dangerousContinue reading “New Release: Where the Weird Things Are Vol. 1”
Well, hello, mid-March.
With a new book coming out at the end of the month and WordPress about to charge me for another year of domain registration, I thought I should pop in and update this blog a bit. First of all, Enchanted Sleep, book two in the Drosselmeier Industries series, comes out on March 26! You canContinue reading “Well, hello, mid-March.”
The One With the End of the Year Summing Up
I remember saying at the end of 2020 that people were putting a helluva a lot of pressure on 2021 to be ~better~ than 2020. I think it’s pretty safe to say that 2021 did not deliver on that front, and I don’t think anyone is harbouring any of the same illusions about 2022. InContinue reading “The One With the End of the Year Summing Up”
2021 Goals Midpoint Check-in
This was supposed to be my quarterly check-in. I found it in my drafts folder today. Oops! I am usually a stickler for having these types of posts go up on the last day of the period they refer to or the first day of the following period, but here we are. 😂 This yearContinue reading “2021 Goals Midpoint Check-in”
2021: the Year of COMPLETE
In 2020, a few writer friends and I all chose a word to be our theme for 2020. I’ve decided to do that again this year. I have so many unfinished projects I want to return to, so it makes sense that my 2021 theme word would be Complete. With that in mind, here areContinue reading “2021: the Year of COMPLETE”
What I Achieved in 2020
When I posted my 2020 Writing Goals on the first of January, Australia was basically on fire. My city was shrouded in smoke, as were others, and N95 masks had sold out across the country. At the time, we thought it couldn’t really get much worse. March 30 was my first day working from home.Continue reading “What I Achieved in 2020”
