What is a "landlore"? Sounds like of mysterious, right? I thought so too, so I had to go investigate. In fact, the prospect of discovering who or what this landlore was is what drew me into my Sun Falls stories. The name seemed normal enough: Jane Alexander. But did you know that when I happened … Continue reading Making a strange place special – part 2
The setting for my short story, Protective Mythology, is a homeowners' association called Sun Falls. But it's not your typical homeowners' association. Those who buy houses here come for different reasons. In Alice's case, she only thought that she was the one to buy the house, but it really had to do with a Sun … Continue reading Making a strange place special – part 1
The lovely community of Sun Falls matched the brochure perfectly, almost. It did forget to mention some things, like a mysterious Landlore who solves problems. Accosted, threatened, and bitten on her leg by another member of the community one night while walking her dog, Alicia decides to take the matter to the Landlore. A man … Continue reading A strange little place
Did you hear the crash? That was the sound of Thor's hammer dropping. So why did he drop his hammer? Well, because I finally got Ring of Stars up and it can be preordered on many sites now. Thor was just shocked that I got it done that he dropped Mjolnir. Let's just hope it … Continue reading A new paranormal mystery coming
Another bike ride this morning. It was hard to make myself do it, as expected. During the whole short ride up the hill (with a total altitude change of 14 feet), I kept wondering who put bricks on me. Then I hit the downhill stretch and felt on top of the world. Woo hoo! My … Continue reading Riding with bricks

So far, all the Fenrir's Tales that have multiple parts to them have nice little endings that still wrap the story. Until today. The ending to Dog Park (Part 1) made me cry. The ending to Dog Park (Part 2) is a cliffhanger and a drastic edgy one at that. When I started this story, … Continue reading Part 2 is finished
After I got daily pages done this morning, I went back to the story that I was editing yesterday. After about an hour, I had finished reading through it. Boy, did I have some issues with it. Instead of working on the story and finishing that up, I went into Kickstarter and started getting out … Continue reading When the creative voice kills a story
After I wrote my pages for the day, I proofed the short story, Four Becomes a Foundation, which is a reward on my Kickstarter. It's all formatted and ready to go. Then I started in on Ring of Stars. I had forgotten that I'd prepared a mockup of the cover, but I wanted to wait … Continue reading A short story and a novella
I think an ice nymph moved through our area today. Yesterday, the weather was in the 70's. Today, it was down in the 40's. Plus, when I got up this morning, the weather app said it was snowing. Snowing! Again? So, I looked outside and it looked like we'd had a good spring rain. I … Continue reading Spring, can we make a deal?
