The Dark Side

This is some heavy shit. I do not post this lightly. I don’t need any nonsense spouted about this. It’s a hard topic with very little information available. I don’t recommend this for young or delicate eyes. Use discretion. There is no graphic language or anything but it is an incredibly difficult topic. Potential trigger […]

Integrated Living Part Five: How Kids’ Shows Made Me a Better Person

  Until I started watching shows like Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Signing Time,  Sesame Street, and others, I struggled with being a parent. I grew up in a household where yelling and spanking were the norm. It was a punishment-as-discipline mindset. Add that to my general invisibility as a middle child and weirdo and suffering other […]

No such thing as “normal”

Since I’ve written very little this year while I concentrate on publishing each character has decided to pop up at inopportune moments to pester me about when I’ll visit them again. I tell them to shush to no avail; they come back […]

Character and Song Number Ten: Michon

Hold on. Is that…is that my name? Curious. It appears that the author has stepped into their own story-in order to heal. Against a backdrop of cuil level six insanity a young Michon works to sort her head and her secrets out. Michon first appears in The Black Tree series and pops up in various […]

Integrated Living: Introduction

Humans tend to have this strange habit of walking around each day and chopping their life into bits. They chop others’ lives into bits, too, at any opportunity.

Writing Saved My Life

My stories are…unique. They read like dreams and cover vastly divergent topics. Yet somehow, there are strong core threads that link many of them together, weaving one through another like twining branches on the tree of my artistic ability. The first series I ever wrote is called The Black Tree and it has become a […]
