It’s Time for NaNoWriMo!

Happy November! It's a rainy and sort of warm-ish morning (70 degrees) here in South Carolina, but I'm still smiling! Why is that, you ask?

Let’s Blog!

My friend and mentor (though I have no idea if he realizes that or not) gave my husband and I some advice about being writers... a few months ago. That person is John Hartness.

ConCarolinas 2015 Wrap-Up

ConCarolinas is my favorite convention. It's a local con, just across the NC/SC border from me, so it's almost like a great big reunion with all my favorite people every year. This year was a little different though. This was my first year going to the con as a  guest! I was accepted as an… Continue reading ConCarolinas 2015 Wrap-Up
