Pink, yellow, and green easter eggs sitting in their own nests.

Did you pick up on the Easter eggs in Life in the ‘Cosm?

It's been almost three years since the book was published, and a second edition will be released this fall. (See: Why there's going to be a second edition of Life in the ’Cosm) But in both editions, there are a few Easter eggs based on my cultural heritage of Irish and Polish. Did you pick …

Am I an author or just an innocent bystander?

Wow. I had no idea Viv was anything like that at 19. Never saw it coming! The quote above is not a beta-reader’s comment about my work-in-progress of The Stealth Lovers. Those are my words. Yeah, I know. But, but, but … how can an author react like this when she's the one writing the story? Beats me, …

How I done gone lost my mind, also known as, I’m trying NaNoWriMo this year!

Welp, that does it. This person who once loathed the concept of writing a novel in a month is going to try . . . writing a novel in a month. Yeah, I'm just as shocked as you are. This has been one of the most difficult years for me, healthwise, and the resulting anxiety …

I’m Writing like Lady and The Tramp Eat Spaghetti

Um, okay, this is a bit different for me. Maybe for you it's perfectly fine, but I'm a bit surprised at myself. I am currently writing the first draft (or trying to anyway while LIFE keeps smacking me in the face) of the second book in the ’Cosm Series. There are several new characters, but I'm …

The boingy-haired nuisance who’s Noola Quirk.

She likes thrift stores, glitter, bold colours (mostly pink), and her hair looks like a giant follicular umbrella. She's annoyingly cheerful, probably the worst roller blader in galactic history, but her tenacity is unbreakable. She's an expressive extrovert. She's fighting a mobility disability.
