HAVING FUN ISN’T HARD WHEN YOU HAVE A LIBRARY CARD

HAVING FUN ISN’T HARD WHEN YOU HAVE A LIBRARY CARD

I love libraries. You’re probably not shocked. From a young age, I learned… Arthur was a great show. In addition to learning how to spell A-A-R-D-V-A-R-K, I learned how to have fun (with a library card!). I’ve never looked back. I spent a good deal of […]

Today it is enough to…

Self-Making

Self-Making

Hello readers (if you’re still out there?) I know. It’s been a long time. A tree could have grown with enough rings to be mistaken for Grandmother Willow since my last post. On the bright side, that means I have heaps of updates. To recap […]

What About Paris?

What About Paris?

I’M BACK (and exhausted, please send coffee)

Katie is a tyrant. It’s true. Wanna know why? She won’t let me work on Flame of Burnt Brandy right now. She won’t let me work on the query or synopsis or… anything. Because she says I need “rest.” What is this rest? But really, […]

New Editing Job

There have been a lot of exciting developments this March, which is unusual, because I typically think of that month as the span of time when weather can’t decide what it wants to be, so it throws a tantrum. And that means all the beautiful, […]

*Erupts from pile of work* Still here!

One of the most recent posts we have on the blog is the announcement for the new page design. That was fine, lovely, and remarkably well timed, because shortly after that update, the pursuits Megan and I refer to as our day jobs (and in […]
