December, 2017

Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were everything holidays are supposed to be. I know mine were. December was a whirlwind of Christmas symphonies, tree-decorating, cookies, cocktails, and overall goodwill. While I did manage to squeeze a few words in, writing had to take a knee much of the time (I’m back at itContinue reading “December, 2017”

October, 2017

There’s something about October… Summer is officially over in the Bay Area. The nights are cold, the mornings are crisp. The sun sits differently in the sky. The holidays are fast approaching, and with them, the end of the year. While I enjoy the excuse to let my witchy flag fly, by the time OctoberContinue reading “October, 2017”

Science and Shades Below: The Quantum Elevator

Welcome back! Today, I’m continuing my mini-series on the role of science in my Shades Below urban fantasy series.

My own last-minute getaway took the form of aContinue reading “August, 2017”

I wish I could say I’ve always loved science, but that isn’tContinue reading “Science and Shades Below: The Crossroads of Science & Magic”

July, 2017

Summer is winding down… Fall is my favorite time of year. The changing of the seasons always brings a unique, mutable kind of energy, but fall has a special magic all its own. It is a magic of opposites: even as the natural world is dying down and preparing for winter, there is a zipContinue reading “July, 2017”

June, 2017: The Vacation Edition

Wow! It’s hard to believe this is my first monthly update of the year. So far, 2017 has kept me hopping! Between book releases, my son’s first year of school (kindergarten, gah!), an awesome family vacation, and turning 30, I haven’t been on the Interwebs much lately. While I miss my online friends, it’s feltContinue reading “June, 2017: The Vacation Edition”
