Hello everyone!

I just wanted to announce my new official site:

I am keeping this blog, however, I just felt like I needed a more professional front for my books and such. Let me know what you think!

My Health, Anxiety, and Health Anxiety

It almost seems cliche to to say that I have anxiety problems. An artist/ writer with mental health problems??

But alas, I do. And lately my anxiety levels have been through the roof as I had another step back with my health this past month. It hasn't been very fun. As many of you may know if you've been following me for the past year, I've been having some ongoing problems with my health. I had started to do well for awhile, but in the beginning of the year I had some medication changes, and then NO medication and then a spiral down, followed by yet ANOTHER medication trial. Now, it's this past trial that has put me over the edge and sent me to the hospital a couple weeks ago.

All was fine more or less, but my anxiety has been getting the better of me since.

Why am I telling you all this? Well, I've been getting questions about the next book in the Curse Magic Series, when it will be done, etc. And while I have been working on it, it's just been a little slow going lately. So bear with me! I won't take as long as the last book, at least I plan not to.

Thanks for all your support and patience if you've made it this far! I really appreciate it!

Hello everyone!

It's been awhile! First I just want to thank everybody for all the kind words and well wishes and being so patient. It's been a tough year so far for me, but I think I am finally on the right path. Although still not at 100%, I am starting to feel better, and I couldn't have done it without the support of family and friends, and all of your kindness.

Now, onto the good news! The final draft of book three is with my editor friend. I still don't know when I will be done with it, but it will be soon! Meanwhile, head on over to the Sneak Peek link for, you know, a sneak peek. I'm still trying to find a good title (I suck at coming up with names and titles, urgh!), so stay tuned for that.

Check it Out!

While everyone is patiently waiting for my next book to come out, check out my buddy Zach's new writing project! It's a weekly serial and he is much better at getting things out in a timely manner than I am. (That I know of!)

Check it out here!

Here's the Dealio - My Health and Delays

It's been a while since my last release. A Loooong while, especially in kindle years! The same could be said about my blog and Facebook page and anywhere else I post stuff. (Though that could be due to my frustrating shyness! the more followers I get, the shyer I become! Gah!)

But, there is a reason for that. I have been suffering on and off for the past couple years with health problems, mostly an unquenchable fatigue that had gotten so bad I thought I was suffering from CFS, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. But, as bad as that was, I was always able to work through it on my better days.

Unfortunately for me, and all of you, my health took a turn for the worse around the beginning of the year. My fatigue spiraled out of control and along came a host of other problems. Over the past couple of months I've felt like I've been losing my mind! Most days are spent sleeping or in such a complete fog I can pass for a walker on The Walking Dead. My memory is that of an 80 year old. But all that pales to the incessant dizziness. Most of the time I shuffle around the house like a drunk zombie. It's all very frustrating, because out of the dozens of doctor and specialist visits, they still haven't found anything besides a slight thyroid problem. I'm still not sure if that is what is causing all my woes or not.

Anyway, health-rant aside, I have put my writing on the back-burner until I can get some of this sorted out. I refuse to write in my current state because I believe I owe you guys better than that. Anything I write now will most likely be terrible and rambling and incomprehensible.

So please bear with me! I swear I'm not doing it to torture you! I promise!

I just need a little time to figure this all out.

A blog post! (Finally! Am I right?)

Hello all! It’s been awhile! Too long, I suppose. I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I last posted on here. Time flies! Anyways, I just wanted to let you all know that I haven’t fallen into a dimensional rift or anything. I am still around and am working on the third book. I meant to have it out by the end of the year, but moving and renovating put me severely behind schedule. So sorry! But I am cracking the whip and am going to try my best to get it done and out as soon as I can. In the meantime, I hope everyone has a happy holiday season!

Mark your calendars!

Or whatever you all do to remember!

Dec 5 is the prospective release date for my next title, Entangled, a short story prequel to the Cursed Magic Series. Hooray! I know how hard it's been to get any sort of release date out of me lately. Still don't know when the third will be out. (See previous blog post.)

Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

Whoa! An Announcement!

Hello all!

Many of you have been asking me about the release for the third book. Unfortunately I STILL don't know yet. I apologize and I assure you I am not doing it to be mean. I swear! It's just, due to ongoing health conditions of both me and my editor it's hard to get things done in time. Things just take a little bit longer, is all. And I like to make sure things are done right instead of just slapping it together. So please be patient! I am working on it, it'll just take a bit longer!

I know what you may be thinking, 'That wasn't an announcement?!'

But alas, I DO have an announcement! It's a side project that I have been working on. It's a sort of prequel/ sequel to the Cursed Magic Series. It takes place two years prior to the events in the first book, but I call it a sequel because, ideally, it should be read after the second book in the series to avoid any spoilers!

Check it out!


Set two years before the events in Cursed, Entangled follows Claire as she navigates through her seemingly normal life where things are about to get a bit more difficult. 

Take a sneak peek into the life of Farron when he was
Sin de Reine, The King's Shadow.
