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!

Personal Power + Work
The only power that exists is inside ourselves.
— Anne Rice; Interview With the Vampire

I’m awake!

And it feels so so good.

To start, I washed the ridiculously high pile of dishes in my sink, made some tea for myself and the boyfriend, and tweaked and shaped up the site. What do you think? It’s great right? Simple, yet informative – a far cry from the jumbled mess that was my old website hosted on WIX.


^ That’s me realizing how shitty WIX’s developmental ‘resources’ were. Now I can shoot my blog to all places as it pleases me the moment I hit post – not copy and paste everything.

Moving on to happier pastures, I’m listening to my local rock radio station 94.3 The Shark (good tunes), I’ve a paper to do on some books I’ve read, and I want to get at least three chapters done in The Two Swords before I head to work.

It’ll be a busy day for me, for sure, but I’m keeping my head on my shoulders, and instead of crippling under the weight of the stress looming over my head, I’m strapping on my ‘let’s get to it’ boots and doin’ it! 

And I hope you are too – conquering whatever obstacles lie in the way of your true happiness. Never take it personal – they’re just that – obstacles, another blip on the journey that is your life.

So go forth, like I am, and conquer your happiness, reign it in, and keep it close to your heart.

What I’m listening to:

With Blood and Love

The New Year & A New Focus On My Vampires
I'm choosing, with this round of storytelling, to dive into 'harder topics,' and things I want to write about. I want to give my worlds more nuance, my characters more stakes, and hopefully more heart. I write for everyone but I cannot deny my experiences--Black experiences--are what have shaped me and should shape my writing. I'm adamant about this because of the erasure of my Black characters in THE DARK WORLD series by white readers.
The Tales of Sinner Sharpe: Dark Waters
This helped shape the nature of the story: Sinner is an outcast from this island. He has no magical ability, same as all from Othril, and when on the mainland, this lack of magical ability is apparent—he is ostracized not only because of his physical dark features, but his inability.
Gothic Horror And Inspiration
It was always my intention as of late, with Sinner Sharpe to delve into the horror he's facing--not physical horror--at least not yet, but the mental horror. He's seeing horrific visions, he's losing large gaps of time, he's being attacked on his ship (an already enclosed space) for weeks.
DRACULA is (finally) out in E-Book Format!
