    Fiction Friday: Illuminated

    This is an “added scene” that takes place several months before the events in Skydancer Book 1. Astrid is one of my favorites, and I look forward to telling more of her story as the series expands. For a glimpse into the world of the Zyne Legacy, including what all of the characters look like (as children and adults), visit my Rain of Ash Pinterest Board. Astrid wasn’t an Oracle. She’d only studied the basics of divination, and even that was sketchy. Still, she thought, zigzagging her way down the jagged hillside to the beach, it was Ostara – the Spring Equinox.

    Fiction Friday: Interview and Exclusive Excerpt

    I’ve been featured on the blog Emily Reads Everything today to kick off Emily’s Awesome Indies feature.  It’s always exciting to find a blogger willing to help boost the indie signal.  She really does read (and review) a little bit of everything, so if you’re looking for a recommendation, check out her impressive list! Along with the interview, I’ve given Emily an EXCLUSIVE excerpt of my next book, To Tame a Wild Heart, out spring 2016, which is doubling as my Fiction Friday post.

    Skydancer: Rain of Ash – Release Announcement!

    I’m moving “Mystic Monday” to later this week so that I can share a special announcement: It’s here!  It’s finally here!  The first book in my new contemporary fantasy series, The Zyne Legacy has finally arrived on the Kindle shelf! I’m so excited about these stories and this world.  I’ll be releasing five Zyne books over the course of the next 18 months, so I hope that readers love the universe and characters as much as I do.

    Spring Writing Update

    *crawls out from under rock* Hello, World! I can’t believe the month of May slipped by so quickly. I wish I had pictures of all the fancy dinners I’ve been out to, and all the GORGEOUS Washington hikes I’ve been on, and all the workouts I’ve been doing, and all the healthy food I’ve been cooking and craft projects I’ve completed.  But, noooooo…. I’ve been stuck inside the last month and a half, glued to my laptop.  If you could see inside my brain right now, it would look something like this:
