I spent the day writing. I finished several more pages in Siva's story and got very close to the scene I'd written earlier. As much as I like what I had envisioned for the scene, I may end up redrafting it rather than trying to stitch in the earlier one. My characters have changed so … Continue reading Letting go to get the energy back
I made it. I got my words in and met the weekly goal for last week. It was late when I finished (after midnight, but since I hadn't gone to bed yet, it still counted as Sunday). I took Merlin outside after 1:00 a.m. and the sky was so bright with the full moon that … Continue reading Release the hellhounds!
Martias wants to spend one night feeling at home under the pine trees of his native land. Being bound with a death sentence makes it hard to bring a friend along. Martias seeks time away from his repetitive daily life of learning and memorizing lines. He doesn’t belong with the humans. Banishment from his centaur … Continue reading About The Unicorn & the Secret
One question I am often asked is how did Steigan get his unicorn. I've always answered that it happened just like the story said it did: Steigan and Martias ran away to "join" the Palin Wars, Martias sprained his ankle, Steigan found Tyana, they got in trouble, they returned home in disgrace.

Lately, I've been doing this massive brainstorming … Continue reading Filling the Shelves
I've still been working on the story about Martias and Steigan heading to the Palin Wars which I referenced last Wednesday. I'm trying to slant it so that a reader could pick it up at any point in the story, even before reading Quest for the Three Books, without much in the way of spoilers. … Continue reading Progress – January 14, 2019
Here are my drawings from Inktober since last Thursday: Prompt #4 was "spell." While "spelling bee" came to mind, I didn't go with it. I also didn't want to do someone casting a spell. I'm am trying to "think beyond what I see." Then I thought of the doorway in the Lord of the Rings … Continue reading Inktober #2
I'm currently out at FanX Salt Lake. We're still an hour away from the show's official start with VIP's entering. I hope I'll get out to walk around tomorrow, but for now I'm sitting at my booth trying to get myself psyched up for the day ahead. Yeah, I was ready for this a week … Continue reading FanX Salt Lake 2018
