  Outlining is something I try to do but it doesn’t always work out. Some of my stories I have detailed outlines for and others I just sat down and started writing them. I will admit outlines do help a lot. For my fantasy story, I have a very detailed…

  One thing about creating a fantasy world is the magic. What kind of magic system will it be? There are so many possibilities.  I’m creating one for my world and it’s been one of the most fun things so far to do. The magic isn’t a major part of the story…

Jade is one of my favorite characters to write. I’ve written a short story about her and am editing it now. Will keep you posted about where the story winds up. Jade is a young supernatural hunter. When I say young I mean she’s in her late teens/early…

I’ve recently started using the Hemingway app to help with some of the editing I do. The jury is still out on it. There are some things I like about and some that I don’t. I’m one of those people that like to edit on paper and then add changes to the…

The Fantasy genre is my favorite genre to write. I write both epic and urban fantasy. It’s such an open field to write in fantasy. So many different types of characters to create and write about. The author that has the most influence on me to write…
