‘I Will Possess Your Heart’ by Death Cab for Cutie The weekend was quiet here on the blog…I was at the Calgary Expo.

Gnossienne #1 By: Erik Satie In a bizarre childhood twist, I was first introduced to the music of Erik Satie via a video game: Challenge of the Ancient Empires. My sisters and I devoured¬†games by The Learning Company when we were kids. There were games that taught reading comprehension, basic math, and even ancient history […]

Good morning, loyal readers! *Crickets* Well, hopefully that’ll change. I wanted to talk about a couple of things quickly. I’m taking some time away from home and doing a self-directed writing residency with the hopes of churning out a lot of work on the sequel to Crystal Promise. I’m also hoping to finish my website […]
