Thank you, fans!!!!!

As the year comes to an end, I need to thank all my fans and readers who’ve made this such an amazing year. I’ve always written from the heart—because I love stories and my characters, and even the feeling of keys clicking under my fingers. Writing is my love, and the sales part is just…

Butthurt Nation

I’ve been thinking a lot lately of the prayer of St. Francis. Now, I’m not religious. If anything, I’ve more and more embraced a self-identity as an atheist.

Gays, Gays, Gays…

My apologies to Max Vos, because as far as I know, he’s a lovely person. One off-color blog post does not a villain make. But you gotta admit, the post on Love Bytes was just asking to be skewered, and I just can’t help myself. so, here goes… Gays, gays, gays… I know you have…

“It’s a Metaphor, Dammit!” Writing from the Heart Versus Writing for the Market

As you might know from my previous posts, I have a lot of thoughts and they don’t always come out in an order that makes sense. So here goes my attempt to tell you something useful. Bear with me… If you’re a new or aspiring author, the first thing you need to know is: If…

Size-ism in Sports: A Bleeding-From-The-Eyeballs Rant

Okay, readers. You’re going to have to bear with me because this is an issue that cuts close to the bone for me: Size-ism in sports, aka the notion that because a person doesn’t “look like” a runner or a ballerina, or a swimmer, they can’t possibly be successful at those things. I read an…
