The Next Right Thing

New Year’s resolutions are hard. Statistically, most of them end up abandoned a month or so after New Year’s. I myself have never had much luck with them. They put pressure on us for a huge amount of change in a very, very short time, and personally, I’ve never found that life changes that way….

What Day Is It?

Does anyone else get a little discombobulated during the holidays? I do. My routine gets dropped, I go on vacation, eat too much food, forget to write, and by the time everything is finished I can’t remember what day it is or what I usually do with myself on a normal workday. Thankfully, this only…

Christmas Parties

I am not generally a ‘party’ kind of person. Honestly, if you know anything about me, you know this. I spent my childhood hiding from parties. In my room, in the woods, in books, and in stories out of my own head. Once, I hid in a rabbit hutch. Someone found me. I’m still bitter…

Christmas Is Coming!

I love December. Christmas lights, music, snow, parties and presents and people we love. Yep, it’s my favorite. I already bought all my Christmas presents, if you can believe that. And wrapped them. Chocolate wine was involved. And Christmas movies. It was a good day. But now that November is past and Thanksgiving is behind…

Interview With An Artist

Eeek! Guess what? I got to interview the beautiful woman who did the illustrations for my books: Of Mice and Fairies and Of Bullfrogs and Snapdragons. I could talk about her forever, but she talked a lot about herself, so I’ll let you hear it from her.  What’s it like working for an author? (Specifically…

Vacation

This week, I am not going into the office. I am taking my first vacation days since starting this job, and I am so excited. I’m going to sleep in, read way too many books, write my own projects, and spend so, so much time with my family. And maybe watch way too much Disney+….

Who Has Time To Read??

This week, I spent Friday night nannying at someone’s house. Because I party hard, ya’ll. I don’t normally nanny anymore, mostly because I work forty hours a week in an office, then get home and work on side hustle/personal career/books until I go to sleep. But this particular job fell into my lap, and I…

Growing Roots

I have three trees growing in my house. And a handful of acorns in the back of my fridge, ready for the spring. So, of course, yesterday I found pine seeds scattered all over my porch from the wind and couldn’t help myself. Now they’re in my fridge, sealed in a plastic bag with a…

FREE BOOKS!

It’s MONDAY! Is anyone else ready for this week? Because I’m totally ready. I spent all last night prepping food for my week, which mostly meant making hummus, frying way more bacon than was strictly necessary, and dancing around my kitchen to celebrate the fact that I finally, finally have an oven again and can…
