As a consummate Ravenclaw, wisdom is something I've always desired to have, but often felt myself lacking. Also,… Continue reading What’s in a name?
I'm pretty open about myself here, but there are probably a few things you don't know about me. If you want to know more, keep reading. I caught pneumonia when I was nine years old while swimming in a pond. I inhaled pond water and developed bacterial pneumonia as a result. I was very sick… Continue reading 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Me
Moreau House, the 3rd book in my Evie Cappelli series, came out last month (do you have your copy yet?). While I do have plans to eventually revisit Evie and her world, it won't be in the form of a full length novel. Moreau House effectively wraps up the series. Never fear, there's lots more… Continue reading What’s Next?

Music has always been a huge part of my writing process, but it was particularly important when writing Evie. From the get-go, I pictured each book as a tv series in my head.

Unfortunately, her boyfriend Micha definitely is, and so Evie gets dragged along for a weekend of ghost hunting with her cousin, his boyfriend, and three… Continue reading Q&A: Moreau House

I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that I need to slow down. At least a little. At least temporarily. The last two and a half months have been rough. Between deadlines and social/family obligations, I'm getting burnt out. I knew July and part of August would be bad. I was not expecting… Continue reading The Worst Kind of Busy

I know I listed him as being just pansexual in my last round up of things you didn't know, but the more I write his character, the more I realized he was on the asexual spectrum, and that gender is pretty meaningless to him, in terms of attraction. While the first draft… Continue reading 5 MORE things you didn’t know about the Evie Cappelli series
