I’m so happy to let you know that my latest story, In a Sky Full of Stars, is officially available on Amazon!  This story encompasses dragons, eclipses, and the difficulty of being human.  It’s just a short one this time, but it’s one that I’m really in love with.

Its that time again! Grab a cuppa and sit back and read on 🙂

Tell us a bit about your book

In a Sky Full of Stars is a story about a girl in a fictional feudal village.  Her mother is a laundress and not very well liked by the rest of the townsfolk.  Her father had been the village storyteller, but he has been gone for several years.  As Perspica helps her grandmother prepare for their a special event the day of the solar eclipse, she finds that her entire life can change in a matter of minutes.

Share Your World Challenge from Cee’s Photography

With perhaps the most interesting interview questions I’ve seen in a long time, here’s my Share Your World Challenge from Cee’s Photography.

List some of your favorite types of teas.

I love tea.  We have a whole shelf dedicated to it.  I like iced tea, but only if it isn’t too sweet.  For hot tea, I’m pretty crazy about Celestial Seasonings.  Tension Tamer and Sleepy Time are the best, and I love that they put little collectors’ tins inside the boxes at Christmas time!

Yes, this is actually my kitchen cabinet. There are a few more boxes, too.

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

Today has been one of those that’s partly productive but with plenty of interruptions.  Watch for Falling Rocks, maybe?

What are a couple of things people could do for you on a really bad day that would help you?

When I dropped my daughter off on the first day of first grade at a new school, I was so worried about her.  She didn’t know anybody, and I just felt awful.  I held myself together until I had to turn my back and walk away.  My husband leaned in and whispered, “Come on.  Let’s go get you a Cherry Coke before you go to work.”

Also, I like chocolate, burgers, Star Trek, and good beer. 😊

Irregardless of your physical fitness or agility, if you could be an athlete what would you do?

Not swimming, because I’m terrified of the water.  Maybe some equestrian sports or archery.  Are there any official cat cuddling competitions out there?  I could so win one of those.

Book Release Party!

Hi, everyone!  I know you haven’t heard from me in awhile.  Let’s just say it’s been a rough summer.  Somehow, amidst all the chaos, I did manage to write another story!  It’s just a shortie, but I’m ready to let it run free!  Come on over to my Facebook page to join the party.

Also, I would love to have some author takeovers.  If you’re interested, just let me know and we’ll get it set up!
