    August Update: Comic Con, Facebook Party, and Cover Reveal!

    Hey everyone! It’s the middle of august, and I can’t believe it.  September will be a crazy month around here, but before then I’ve got a few things on the go to finish off the last full month of summer! This Saturday, August 25th, I’ll be attending The Cambridge Comic Arts Festival in Cambridge, Ontario! I’ll be there all day, talking about the Oracle of Senders (and anything else you want to chat about!), while signing books and selling some fun Oracle-related goodies. If you’re in the area, I definitely suggest you stop by. It’s going to be a lot of fun! Not in the Cambridge area? You can still…

    Shade Cover Reveal!

    I’m excited to finally share with you all the cover for my upcoming novel Shade, the first in a YA Paranormal series, Oracle of Senders. About the Book: Fourteen-year-old Callum Silver sees dead people. It’s not a gift. His family thinks he’s crazy. Sometimes he thinks he’s crazy. He has no friends. He’s forced to live his life surrounded by nothing but the searing pain, sickening smells and desperate moans that accompany the murdered ghosts who seek him out.

    The Once and Future Challenge – 1/4 Update!

    I can’t believe I’m already a quarter of the way through my year-long reading of Le Morte D’Arthur. But, since it’s been three months already, I thought I’d do a quick update on how it’s going! Things I’m enjoying so far: It’s great to know I’m around a quarter of the way through the book already. I’m a little behind schedule (about 20-25 pages), but technically it should take me a little less than a year to finish the whole book, so being a bit behind is okay. The unexpected adventures – Okay, let me level with you. Despite this story being full of battles and magic, it’s not the…

    Cover Reveal: Getting the Brush Off

    It’s been a busy few months! Over the holidays we moved to a new house. We’ve almost got ourselves completely settled, which is good, because as of last week I officially became a mother for the second time. I now have two little boys in my household, which means things are busier than ever! And it’s been a busy time writing-wise, too. I’ve started working on a new story (though it’ll probably be slow-going for a while now, which is wonderfully okay), am in the querying stage for another one, and – the awesome purpose of this post – I finally get to reveal the cover of my upcoming Orca…
