I promised you more blogging, so HERE. BLOGS! But truthfully, this is one I’ve been excited about for a while, because it’s really very awesome. Drumroll, please!  May I present…THE SUN’S RIVAL! I, sadly, have not had the chance to sit down with this book and give it the attention it deserves, but It’s been […]


Hey!  Look!  This is a much more productive way to spend the next few hours than all the writing and editing I had planned! I have been nominated for a Liebster Award TWICE.  This means that I have the lovely L.E. Pate and the glorious J.L. Licea to thank for the twenty-two questions I have […]


A Random Writing Tip

September 13, 2012

So if you write at all, you probably already carry a notebook and some extra pens with you everywhere you go.  And if you don’t, you at least know that you should. But sometimes, you forget.  Or at least I do.  If you’re rushed out of the house, or you don’t want to have too […]

Behind the Scenes: Pandora Has an “Epic Soundtracks” Station, in Case You Were Wondering

September 6, 2012

One of the things I’m almost always doing while writing is listening to music. I love to listen to music while I write, so unless there’s something directly preventing me from putting on my headphones, you can bet I’m rocking out while typing.

Star Wars: Episode I – Epilogue

August 23, 2012

The celebration was loud, and busy, and completely overwhelming to Anakin.  The only time he’d ever seen crowds like this was when he’d participated in podraces, and at least then he’d had a machine to distract him.  The sun was blazing overhead, and while it wasn’t as painful as the suns of Tatooine, it was […]

Star Wars: Episode I – Chapter VII

August 16, 2012

The Jedi and Cordelia hurried away, leaving Anakin alone amidst the carnage. The boy still held the Captain Panaka’s gun in one hand, but it suddenly felt so heavy. He set it down and moved away – he didn’t want to be near the Captain’s body anymore. But he couldn’t escape them. The handmaidens, pilots, […]

The small ship touched down lightly on the swampy surface of the uninhabited regions of Naboo. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan hurried down the ramp and began scouting the area, following Dex’s map of possible locations for the Gungans’ various hiding places. They had found nothing at their first stop, and time was running out. This time […]

Star Wars: Episode I – Chapter V

August 2, 2012

Qui-Gon knocked lightly on the door. “Anakin, it’s Qui-Gon, can I come in?” “Yes.” Qui-Gon stepped in and found Anakin sitting on his bed, still and silent. Qui-Gon knew he was upset about leaving Lakshmi behind, and was unsure of how to comfort the boy. The circumstances of their departure had been different from planned, […]

Star Wars: Episode I – Chapter IV

July 26, 2012

The group ate their celebratory dinner and congratulated Anakin on a job well done. He sat beside his mother, wanting to hold on to every last minute with her, knowing it would never be enough. Anakin was becoming fearful and anxious – a feeling that was completely alien to him. As the night wore on, […]

Star Wars: Episode I – Chapter III

July 19, 2012

Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon watched as Anakin worked diligently on the last details of his pod. It was early in the morning, with the sun barely peeking up over the horizon, illuminating the endless expanse of barren desert, and casting long shadows where it touched the worn-down buildings of the little town. Anakin wore a serious […]
