Road Kill: No Jury Would Convict Me

Dear MDOT (also known as Michigan Department of Transportation—or, in some (many) circles, Michigan Department of Torture), On any given day, my feelings for you are little more than a basic dislike. Sort of like the way I feel about that first mosquito of the evening in the summer, the one that’s warning me that I’ve... Continue Reading →

Living With Grief

It’s Sunday morning. I’m stretched out on the couch wearing comfy pajamas, a super soft fleece blanket draped over my legs. It’s dark outside, a rainy, overcast day. There’s no one else awake at the moment. I’m trying to write a book, but every time I glance up from the laptop, my gaze focuses on... Continue Reading →

Redefining “Normal”

Since March, I have consistently referred to my life as “our new normal.” We were forced to learn to live in a world without my son in it. We abruptly changed from a family of four to a family of three. To having a son and daughter to only a daughter. My daughter went from... Continue Reading →

When my children started kindergarten, the principal of their elementary school hosted an event called “Tea and Tissues.” Each year on the first day of school, parents of kindergarteners dropped their kids in their classroom and then made their way to the library, where the principal had coffee and tea and cookies and tiny packages...

“How many kids do you have?” This is the latest dilemma my husband and I have had to figure out. What’s the right answer? “One here, one in heaven.” “Two.” “One.” What the hell do we say? That first choice up there would obviously spur a litany of questions none of us wants to deal... Continue Reading →

Intro-Extrovert… I’m So Damn Confused

I just want a minute to myself… Okay, not really. For those of you who don’t know, my life inexplicably changed about six weeks ago, when my thirteen-year-old son died. Yeah, it sucked. It still does. Not that I’ve had time to wallow in that fact. Save for those precious moments in the bathroom and... Continue Reading →

Why Shapeshifters?

Here’s a question: why shifters? I now have two series centered around shifters – the Twisted Fate Series (Of Love and Darkness was released in June, 2015, and Prim and Proper Fate will be released in 2016, followed by the final book in the series, in 2017) and the Lightbearer Series. Twisted Fate is entirely about... Continue Reading →

Blogging About Favorite Shifters

I haven't been blogging regularly lately, at least not here, on my own blog. Mostly that's because I'm blogging in other places. Once a month (usually on a Friday) you can find me over at the Writing Wenches website. Every two or three months on a Wednesday, you can read my words on the Soul... Continue Reading →
