Introduction
About Me
I am a writer, editor, and social media producer living at the edge of the Texas Hill Country. I enjoy writing near future science fiction and contemporary fantasy short stories and novellas for Young Adult and New Adult audiences. I also enjoy helping other writers create the strongest, most polished stories possible. I pride myself on being accidentally funny in my stories.

When I'm not building fictional worlds, I use my geeky powers for performing in science fiction and fantasy audiobooks (which I also produce) and audio dramas. I also blog about individual and networked learning and my creative fields at Genius on Hold. My favorite things include books, tea, fan fiction, my library cards, and my bulletin boards.

About My Webspaces
We are what we experience. It shapes who we are, what we do, and how we think. This is my experience. This is what I'm reading, seeing, thinking, and creating. This is where I've been and where I'm headed, for better or for worse. The topics may represent a diverse set of interests to you, but to me it's the tightly woven tapestry of my life. Following me won't change your life. It won't even change how you see the world. But hopefully, it will inspire you to think about and pay attention to what shapes and inspires you.


My Following Policy
(I never thought I'd need one of these, but some creative and business folk on Twitter and G+ apparently need manners or maybe a reminder that they aren't in kindergarten or high school anymore.)

My following policy is simple. I make posts that are interesting to me that I hope will be interesting to others, and I follow people who make interesting posts. I don't auto-follow, and I don't expect people to follow me just because I followed them.

I have zero tolerance for serial add/droppers and for those who engage in that behavior trying to build up their numbers. Those people just don't understand social media. 
Bragging rights
I have a small role in Valiant Comics' Archer & Armstrong audio drama, which was announced at their NYCC panel.

I don't quite think this is what they mean when suggesting learning something new this summer, but it's a fun listen! Especially "The Apprentice's Choice". ;) #audiodrama
SEMINAR Episode Sixty-nine - "Down the Rabbit Hole". Sometimes our choices are a matter of life and death, and sometimes we learn what we might be capable of. How far would you go? Featuring "The Apprentice's Choice" by Matthew Hocking and "Better Than Sex" by V.C. Morrison.

As we’ve been looking at each stage of the creation project in terms of my two primary creative activities, I’ve been able to break down activities into writing-specific activities and voiceover-specific activities. Publishing is a little bit different,…

Some thoughts on emoji from an anthropology enthusiast fascinated by alphabets.

A few years ago, I wrote a surprisingly popular post on language as a series of meaningful glyphs, citing a cartoon that employed this in a subtle way. At the time, I compared it to learning any language with an alphabet different from yours, because…

Lessons Learned From Reconnecting With Journaling (with a strong focus on Bullet Journaling).

Like so many little girls, I grew up with a journal hidden somewhere in my living space. Okay, mine might actually have been sitting out wherever I left it last. Still is. The point is, I’ve spent most of my life with a notebook in my hand, documenting…

New blog series on how being a longtime writer helped me develop a better understanding of the production process as a new voice actor.

My high school and college both had a technology class requirement, and I chose to fulfill both by taking basic programming courses. Honestly, it seemed more fun than several weeks of having basic terminology explained to me. I took three classes total.…

The other day, we talked about negative space in print and digital text and our need for visual breaks in order to process what we’re looking at. It’s no different with sound. You’ve probably noticed this if you’ve ever been at a concert or a sporting…

Today is #WorldIPDay, and this year's focus is digital culture and creation.

Although he makes the classic context mistake with the "Information wants to be free" quote, Joseph Gordon Levitt does a great job talking about the need to value IP, regardless of its format in this video: https://www.hitrecord.org/records/2834987
World Intellectual Property Day is a yearly celebration of IP's role in stimulating innovation and creativity. Find out more about what's planned for 2016.

Some creators look at the blank slate of the creation stage and panic. Others look at the editing stage and go into hiding. We all have our own relationships with our craft and our work. In my case, I hate being asked whether I prefer creating or editing…

Most creators don’t start working on a project without going through some sort of planning phase. Even those who write by the seat of their pants will have a handful of ideas, a genre, a target audience, and maybe a target word length in mind when they…

Before you see Through the Looking Glass when it releases later this month, you can listen to the original story. I attempt to read "Jabberwocky" backwards. It's fun. ;)
