Hallmark Channel’s Favorite Character Names

A weekend binge session gave me an idea. On the way home from work today a crazy idea for a blog post popped into my head. What’s even crazier is my drive is only four minutes. So, naturally, there isn’t much “mulling over blog post or story plots” time. This afternoon’s drive was an exception….

Important Site Update ft. KJ Harrowick

Earlier this summer I put a commission in to fellow writer (well, she’s the published author!) to design a new site banner for this site’s rebranding. In the following weeks between real life family and work stuff, we threw out ideas, images, vectors and all things sparkly. I mean, just take a look at my…

It’s Time To Bare My Soul

In 2019 I gave myself seven writing goals to accomplish by this time, this year. I completed every single one of them! Ha, no. That would be a lie *insert clip of Maury reading lie detector results in front of a live audience.* The shutdowns in early 2020 really put a damper on my earliest…

Here’s Why “The Siege of AR-558” is the Finest Episode in All Star Trek.

There’s one life long decision I’ll never apologize for cultivating: my life long obsession with Star Trek. Many episodes from The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise I’ve watched thrice over. I never could get into The Original Series, but that’s just personal taste.
