2021 Reading Year in Review


It’s cliche but it’s true: if you want to be a writer, you need to first be a reader. More than just keeping up with current genre trends and studying craft, though, everything we consume as a creative gets woven into our minds and our souls—and you never know when part of that tapestry will work its way into your own work. So it’s nice, at these yearly transitions, to look back at all the things that influenced my own artistic sensibilities in the year 2021. Let’s get into it!

Monthly Author Check-In: July 2020


First up: there really is no fun way to say this so I’ll just say it. Last month, my oldest, sweetest, most beloved cat passed away. I’m not going to be talking about it, because even though I’m a writer I really don’t find solace in writing about my messier feelings, but I will say that I am utterly heartbroken. We had that pretty baby since she was about 4 months old, and she was 14 when she passed. I can’t even begin to imagine life without her, despite the fact that it’s technically been over a month already.

How has it been over a month already?
