Welcome to my Blog! Here you’ll find posts about my life, inspiration I find on the way, and of course, writing updates, excerpts, and cover reveals! I’ll even be reviewing books I read (if you’re here for movies I’m into, check Monster thoughts). Grab your tea (or coffee) and stay awhile!

Editing is OVER!

And believe me, I have been celebrating in my own way (drowning in Netflix shows counts as celebrating, hush), and I’m overjoyed at the story I have now. And as for what has been done with the story – well you’ll have to keep reading future blog posts to find out. 😉
Moving on, The Dark World is the novel I’m talking about in case you’re a newcomer to this blog, and you can read more about it by clicking the link up there on the navigation bar.

And with the completion of The Dark World, (for the millionth time), I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the kinds of stories I want to write and where I want to take my career – ’cause I’ve decided this is what I’m doing for the rest of my life – and it’s fantasy…with a lean toward horror, and darkness, which you’d know if you read my most recent work, my short story, A Night of Frivolity.

I don’t know, it’s something about these kinds of stories that pull to me, motivate me, captivate me, and my characters’ processes are more psychological than anything despite the physical changes to themselves and their world. It’s how I’ve…processed my own life – very much in my own head – and I didn’t know there was another way to do this until I started actually living my life, and I’m sure many of my characters will walk away from their stories with similar revelations, though it won’t be my goal in life to make every story the same, but naturally I do think many writers have a certain theme, and for now at least, I believe this one is mine.

I’m open to change, and to growing as a person and a writer, and I welcome all the change that living life brings – and I can only hope that this shines through in my writing.

Oh, and I’m definitely not shying away from the gritty, the real, the dark, the death…it’s all some of us have, after all.

‘Till next time, keep your bite.

Finishing DRACULA: BOOK 6

It’s been quite a while since we last talked, but so much has happened since then.

If you’re not a Patron, you probably aren’t aware of the number of short stories I’ve published on my website and on Patreon, all of which can be purchased or viewed on my website.

That said, I’m looking forward to finishing up THE DARK WORLD series at last and finally moving forward with new stories!
