Flash Fiction: Poetry, “Storm”

Today, it's been storming like crazy. Doesn't bother me, though- there's something magical about Southern thunderstorms. It's in the warm air, quick breezes, the wind chimes and thunder mingling together... When I was a kid, we would open all the doors and windows and let the sounds pour through the house, where they'd sync up... Continue Reading →


Bookstock 2016 Author Showcase

On Saturday, we had our local Mid-South version of Bookstock 2016, a festival celebrating all things, well, books and the art of writing. The theme this year was “From Shakespeare to Dr. Seuss, and Everything in Between,” and we certainly did it up!

Maggie Stiefvater + Random Musings

Today while perusing the everyday shenanigans of GoodReads, I came across this: Now, when the person asked this, I had to go look again. I knew I had seen it recently- it was when Maggie was signing/doodling on the pre-order copies of The Raven King [these fanciful copies can be procured HERE], and sure enough,... Continue Reading →

Flash Fiction Time + Bard Girl Press

Since I'm feeling less like THE DEATH this week, I went ahead and wrote some flash fiction! This is another based on Chuck Wendig's Flash Fiction Challenge. This week? Dragon. Two thousand words max. Period. What came to my mind? PIRATES AND DRAGONS, of course. Because part of my mind lives under the sea, and... Continue Reading →

Oh, April Fool’s Day.

A day dedicated worldwide to pranking people and making mischief? Where's Loki at?! Well, that looks about right. (Want a crash course on April Fool's? Here's a good chunk of info.) I am certainly one to take- and make- a joke. But today, the Day of Fools, people get carried away. Especially on social media... Continue Reading →
