Having the time of my life at ConQuesT. I missed my 30th high school reunion. Sad to say, I’ve seen more friends here in the first hours than probably I would at the reunion.
There will be room parties after panels and readings. Loving the panels!
Gotta go! Next panel is about to start!

KLA Musings

Posted: March 19, 2017 in Uncategorized

I was invited to the KLA Conference by an awesome Miranda Ericsson-Kendall. I am meeting so many neat folks today. Seeing some familiar faces and meeting lots of new friends.

I had a rather frustrating start to the day. I met with the amazing Jo Mach (CHECK OUT HER CHILDREN’S BOOKS) and rode to the KLA with her. I was on time with everything I needed. We got to the hotel, and my keys were missing?! Yes, MISSING!

One panic attack later (Sheila Dalrymple being supportive along with Jo) , one phone call, the support of friends, and I found out I left my keys on the seat of my truck when I parked!! Amazing Alie saved the day, and Jo is my rock of support today. I will be fine when I get home.

Just met Richard Brookman, JR of COMICPOP LIBRARY ( You’ve got to check these guys out! They have a podcast and review books, comics, and so much more!! Stay tuned because I may be doing a podcast with them sometime in the coming year.

This afternoon is filled with some amazing poetry and bright poets. This is a treat for the ears.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to be here. Today has been humbling, filled with love, and the support of friends. Today has been richer than I could have ever guessed!

Much love,

Hello my darkly wonderful ones!

I see I have a bunch of new followers. THANK YOU!! All of you have allowed me to be where I am today! I will have to step up my game and post more!

I have been busy writing lately. My next book, Flip Side, is with my amazing pro editor. She is probably pulling out her hair at this draft. There are several new characters who are being introduced in this book as well as the continuing story of Isys, Justus, Twitch, Psych, Luther, and the very evil Roman and Chianti.

I am hard at work on at least two more books. I am unsure which one I will finish first, but I can promise Flip Side will be out within the next few months. Or, by the end of the year at the latest.

Thanks for hanging in there with me as I slowly get each draft done.

Until next time-


Shiny new year

Posted: January 17, 2017 in Uncategorized

Hello all!

Sorry I have been absent. I have been busy with getting the next book ready for my awesome editor. Book 2 in the Kansas Vampire Chronicles is being reviewed now. (I am aware that Isys has posted more this year than I have.)

I do hope you all survived the hoidays and the severe weather of the last week unscathed. I was relieved things were mild. I am also grateful for the rain we recieved. We needed the moisture.

I am working on Book 3 and another two drafts.When I am blocked, I simply move to another WIP. Not very exciting, but it works most of the time. Speaking of which, I need to get back to work.

May your new year be shiny and much kinder to you than the last!



No Nano, Books, and Books

Hello everyone!

Well, I didn’t finish my NaNoWriMo novel, but I did finish the first of my rewrites on “Flip Side”. While I was still mulling over the defeat of my 30 day writing binge, a friend suggested I pop into a little bookstore in Emporia. I was not prepared.

Ellen Plumb’s City Bookstore is that and so much more. The ladies have filled the cozy and sensible little space with books, jewelry, and more! They even have a section just for local Kansas authors! I applied and was accepted.

Now, what I need for all of you to do is GO SEE THEM and SHOP! The store is filled with quality, whether it be books or jewelry, or what other quality work they may have found and are showcasing. They are at 1101 Commercial Street, in Emporia, up near the college. It is more than worth the trip!

This weekend is the Topeka Shawnee County Public Library’s yearly event- Great Writers, Right Here. There will be around 50 different authors, from all genres, gathered there to meet and greet. This event is FREE to the public. You can talk to the authors, get signed books, and maybe your favorite writer will be one of the lucky ones to do a live reading! R.L. Naquin, Kevin Wohler, Deborah Dalton, Dennis Smirl, Aimee Gross, Sheila Dalrymple, Annette Billings, and others will be there. All genres are represented. I can guarantee you will find something to either give as a gift or as a gift for yourself. It’s at the Topeka Shawnee County Public Library at 1515 SW 10th Street, Topeka, Kansas, from 1-4 p.m.. Stop by and see us!

I need to get a few business cards printed up before the weekend, and I need to go throw another log on the fire. The weather here is very Christmas-like and I am still trying to get into the mood. I do hope all of you had a good Thanksgiving  and I wish you an even better Holiday Season!

thanks again,
