Japan, Bender, Moving Forward

Post Image

I recently got back from a 10-day solo journey around Japan, and it was an utterly fantastic experience. I had never traveled alone internationally before, so it was definitely quite the adventure. Japan was just as beautiful as I imagined, and I feel blessed that I got to visit, and see so much in so little time. It was the [...]

As of yesterday, my newest novel,┬áBender, is eligible to win a publishing contract from Amazon’s Kindle Scout. I would appreciate it very much if you could vote for my book.

Freedom. Summer. New Beginnings.

Hello world! So today is a pretty fun day for many reasons. It’s officially my first day off from work, as yesterday was my last day working at my publishing job. I’d been there since July of 2012. It’s so hard to believe that nearly three years have gone by. It was a good job overall, I learned a lot, [...]

Bender. BookTube. West Coast, Best Coast?

Post Image

I’m sitting at my new office in the suburbs, (my day job just recently relocated and forced me to abandon my amazing downtown view) and since I have nothing to do, and have already reached my writing goals for the day, I decided it would be a great time to post another blog update. Bender is coming along nicely, and [...]

Publication day is only five days away! I’m really excited for ‘What Happened to Marilyn’ to be released. Since starting the manuscript in March of 2013, it feels like it’s been a long journey to get here. There have been ups and downs along the way, but most of all, I have really just enjoyed the experience of getting my [...]
