2014 is The Year of the Horse

Wynde Final Cover

It’s fitting, then, that a winged horse is gracing the cover of my novel. Wynde is now for sale in print edition on Amazon and in my CreateSpace store. What’s the difference? It prints from the same place but I make a little more money if it comes from the CreateSpace store. An ebook will …

The Voices In My Head

Writers often talk about “the voices in my head” as part of the creative process. I too am afflicted with characters who talk to me, often in the form of dialogue. Two particularly troublesome characters, Utara Fireheart and Gemini Reed, each seemed to enjoy giving me a piece of her mind about where their respective …
