This is not everything I’ve read, just five selected books that I can recommend. 🙂 In case you can’t read the graphic, I’ll type out the info below. I’ve linked to all the stores I could find them on. Apple Books doesn’t seem to be working with my link maker right now, but these should …

Loving Libraries

My love of public libraries has been nurtured from a young age. Our library was small, but we’d visit fairly regularly. I had my own card and everything, and I’m old enough to remember card catalogs and signing the lined paper in the little pocket inside the book I wanted to check out. (Side note: …

The Final Week of 2020

Dear 2021, You could not come soon enough. I’m not one to linger on the past, so I won’t lay blame or tell you all the ways you could’ve really improved things by arriving sooner. Your evil stepsibling, 2020, was wholly irresponsible and honestly, a lot of us are wary now of what dangers you …

2020 in Review

Giving Thanks…

For the past couple of years, I’ve been really trying to focus on gratitude.  My default demeanor is cranky and pessimistic, so I started making an effort to write three things I’m thankful for in my diary every morning. It got very boring until my friend Ona told me I wasn’t allowed to repeat the …

Playground of the Paranormal

This post first appeared on the blog Ravens and Books on March 24, 2020. I’ve been writing shifter romance since 2016—a little earlier if you count some terrible books which shall never see the light of day. However, I started reading shifter romance much earlier than that, probably in the early 2000s. Early into my …
