A Christmas-themed short story written in 2018.
As I let you know with my last post, I would be doing NaNoWriMo. And I managed to finish it. NaNoWriMo may have taken away my social life, stopped me from posting on social media and my website, stopped me from reading any books, and gave me one too many late nights. Actually didn't sleep… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 Complete!

Many things have happened recently that have changed my life, the person I thought was the love of my life left me, I got a job as an early childhood educator, I moved houses again (this time to be closer to work), and I’m writing a novel I have dubbed Worldbuilding Essentials – A Guide… Continue reading Announcing Worldbuilding Essentials

Whether new or old, the role of a monster is to be scary. Right? Does it turn invisible and hunt it’s prey like a certain alien race in a series of movies most of us know? Does it have sharp teeth that can tear through steel? Can it manipulate your mind into seeing things that… Continue reading Monsters
I’m a strong believer that research will benefit your writing almost as much, if not more than your own imagination will. For my current novel I have researched a fair amount of information into medieval warfare, siege tactics, weapons training, medicines, farming, cooking, town location, armour/weapon crafting and technological breakthroughs. Of course, I researched many… Continue reading Research
