I love musicals. I'm pretty sure nearly every right-thinking person on the planet loves musicals, although I wouldn't vouch for the fact if you pressed me.  The point is, I LOVE THEM. But I have a hard time picking a single favorite musical theater production.  Probably because I don't have enough money to spend days/weeks/years... Continue Reading →

NaNo 2018: Recap

The above GIF is technically unrelated to NaNo, but is a #big mood right about now. This November was my first time doing NaNoWriMo.  It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who knows me that I didn't do a full 50K, or even attempt a full 50K.  Rightly or wrongly, competitive group events tend...

On Rereading

I don't like rereading books. Why not, you say? I DON'T KNOW, I say.  And I throw up my hands in despair. Yep, in case you haven't guessed already, this is very hard for me to admit.  Because it makes no sense!  How can I love reading as much as I do, yet hate re-reading? ... Continue Reading →

The 10-Day Movie Challenge

Recently, the lovely Rachel Kovaciny-aka-Hamlette tagged me on Facebook for something called the "10-Day Movie Challenge." The rules are simple:  every day, post a picture from a movie that has affected you in some way.  No explanation, just the picture.

It's hard to put into words what Freddie Mercury and his band, Queen, mean to me. ... Continue Reading →

A Royal Masquerade: Review

Greetings, lords, ladies, peasants, and assorted jesters! *sweeping bow whilst scattering fairy dust* (Okay, okay, none of you are ACTUALLY peasants.  That would be very rude of me.  Of course I'm not suggesting anything of the sort.  😉 ) Today, I'm here as part of the blog tour for my dear friend Allison Tebo's new...

But One Life: Review

YO.  EVERYONE. LISTEN UP. My bestest writer pal just published an amazing new Snow White retelling . . . sooooooooooooooooooo, here comes the bragging!!! (Shut up, Wyn, you are the best, and anyway it's my turn to talk.  :-P) But One Life, by Wyn Estelle Owens, is historical fiction, my favorite genre. This story plunks... Continue Reading →

The NaNoWriMo Fanatic Tag

What's up, munchkins? NaNoWriMo is just around the corner!  *cue wild hyena laughter*  And, as luck would have it, the lovely Hamlette tagged me (well really, she tagged "anyone who is doing NaNo, or contemplating doing it") with The NaNoWriMo Fanatic Tag.  So obviously, I can't get out of writing a NaNo post now.  ;-)...
