Natalia learned how to muffle her crying, how to put on a mask that said to the rest of the world I am a well-adjusted individual. Pay no attention to me. Winter isn't like I remember it. When I was a youngun' in Kelowna I remember heaps of snow that dominated the world. They peaked… Continue reading There is Snow

Sometimes I only think about The Code.
Let’s Talk About Cults
Or more, let me introduce you to my new favorite obsession. Three years ago it was biker gangs, last year it was viruses. This year is the year of cults, and I am so giddy that my astral cocoon is fit to burst! I've been busy working on Book 3 (reminder, you can buy books… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Cults

Happy New Year – Introducing the Idiomatic Podcast (Coming Soon)
I haven't met some of my closest friends in person. I've only spoken to one or two of them through Skype, and another handful on text message. But I love them.I love talking to them about writing and reading and the triumphs and failures of the craft. And for a while I've been playing with… Continue reading Happy New Year – Introducing the Idiomatic Podcast (Coming Soon)
The Code, Book 2: The Skeletal Bird – Coming Soonish
I'm not sure what it is about November. Perhaps it has something to do with NaNoWriMo, which I unfortunately bailed on this year. Or perhaps it is the fact that it is also Extra Life (which was a grand success this year.) Something about November forces my writing to a complete halt. I want to write.… Continue reading The Code, Book 2: The Skeletal Bird – Coming Soonish
She was built of fractals that continued to break down, leaving behind smaller halves of the same person. Several days ago I finished the second draft of Book 2 of The Code Series. It was a little surreal. I've spoken before about earworms, and how some idea can get nestled down into your skull and refuse… Continue reading Fractals
The Magical World of Commerce
I wouldn't say I'm burnt out by writing; far from it. If anything, I have more drive than ever to get back into book 2 since I completely redid the entire damn plot. The problem is I have other responsibilities. I have work, book club, cleaning the house, taking care of the pets, laundry, beta reading,… Continue reading The Magical World of Commerce
The Wicked Earworms: Part Deux
So, ha-ha, funny story. Ha, oh boy. Remember... hahah, remember how I finished the draft of Book 2 and it was like, Woaaa, draft done in record time! Hooray! I may have been jumping the gun a tiny bit on that. Not that I was displeased with how Book 2 worked out. It followed my previously… Continue reading The Wicked Earworms: Part Deux
The Validation of Publication in the Writing Nation
How many months has it been? Only two, two and a half if we're being exact. Two and a half since I released the monster that is Between Fire and Pines into the universe to see what corpses it might drag back with it. The response has been quietly enthusiastic. Friends and family and coworkers have… Continue reading The Validation of Publication in the Writing Nation
Between Fire and Pines Update and Other Such Stuff
Between Fire and Pines has been out for just under a month n0w, and what a month it has been. At the insistence of one of my managers our store is now stocking numerous copies. I also have my first author signing planned for June 25th. I've sold 15 copies in-store, another 15 hardcopies online, and… Continue reading Between Fire and Pines Update and Other Such Stuff
