This is Edit. She is the alpha-pet. Both of our 100lb dogs submit to her. She is super smart (unlike our other cat who is NOT smart) and today she turns 10 years old!

She was with me in DC for grad school. She knew my dad before he died. She’s driven with me to Cleveland to visit my best friend. She was there when Lisa and I moved in together. She tolerated living in Delaware and now that we are in Texas she misses Delaware. She is full of personality and is simply awesome.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I wrote this four years ago for a Valentine’s Day Blind Comic Date event where authors were randomly paired with artists. It’s one my favorite Valentine’s Day things I’ve written and that’s saying a lot since Valentine’s Day is an actual character in Holiday Wars!

Merry Holidays!

If there is one message I’d like to share, it’s that make sure you start your new year with the ones you love. No matter what hemisphere, religion, or country you live in, I hope the next few weeks are awesome for you and that you get quality time with family and friends.

Merry Holidays from me and of course the whole “Holiday Wars” team!

5 Day Novel!

5day novel logo
I’m aiming to write a 50k-ish novel this week. That’s from concept to polish with at least two re-writes built in.

I have no idea if I will be able to do it. I’m a bit nervous. I’d like to do it secretly and not tell anyone so if I fail then no one will know. However I feel like that is cheating. So I’m making it public.

Right now I know that the book will be thriller. It will most likely be an action thriller. I know I want the protagonist to be an FBI agent, outside of that I’ve not done any planning. I’ll figure that all out tomorrow once I officially start working.

I have spent the past week researching the FBI, gun types, jurisdiction between Feds and police and those kinds of things. Just to make sure I know enough to write competent characters. I have not done any story or character planning yet.

I’ll TRY to put an update here everyday, though they may be short ‘cause I’m going to be a bit busy. Plus I’m going to unplug my router so I will avoid social media and the web in general. They can be a bit of a distraction. But every night or maybe when I do my daily walks I’ll try to post updates!
