Book Review: Deathless by Catherine Valente

The last few years, I have stopped forcing myself to read books I am no interested in. I used to be a “finisher” – someone who would finish reading a book no matter what. But you know what I realized? Life is too short to read things you don’t want to read. And so, you … Continue reading

Happy Anniversary to Us

I have been a bad, bad blogger recently. Not that I’ve ever been the example for good bloggers (sporadic posts, much?). But I logged into WordPress today with the intention of writing a quick update, and found a Happy Anniversary notification from WordPress. Apparently, I have been blogging on here, writing flash fiction and book … Continue reading

Book Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I read Gone Girl in a matter of days. I’m a fast reader, generally, but this was a nearly 500 page book and I didn’t have a lot of time for it. But the book kept me turning page after page. It’s starts out as a mystery and becomes something of a suspense. The crime … Continue reading

2012 In Review

Well, I may be a few days late to the game but here I am! Reviewing my 2012 and setting up my goals for 2013. It’s been a hard couple of years. Family drama, personal drama, moving several times have all made it difficult to find my focus and really get close to my projects. … Continue reading

Why Am I Always Running From Zombies?

I’ve been having zombie movie dreams lately. And I don’t mean one here or there; I mean, every other night there is a new film playing out in my head, and I am almost always part of a rag tag group of people fighting for their lives in the zombie apocalypse. Last week, I was … Continue reading

In Which I Get On My Soapbox

I have to tell you something. I am in Independent. I think that in the past, both the Republican and Democratic parties have had their merits and their issues. I’ll be honest – until Palin showed up, I was not afraid of a McCain presidency. But this year is different. More and more, I have … Continue reading

In Which I Ask You Not to Hate Valentine’s Day

This is becoming an annual thing for me, writing about Valentine’s Day. But every year I hear about how much single people hate Valentine’s Day. It’s a Hallmark holiday, it’s only purpose is to trick you into buying things. You know what? This is true for every holiday, but most of us seem to have … Continue reading

What Happens Now: Columbine – Wounded Minds

Sam Granillo is kind, generous, passionate, and driven. He is ridiculously friendly and he genuinely cares about everyone. He’s someone that wants to see a smile on every face. He is also a survivor of the Columbine Shooting. You know the one – the effects of it rippled through the nation, shocking everyone. It was … Continue reading

Time to Say Goodbye

I meant to do this post yesterday and then got sidetracked with the festivities. I didn’t do very well this year in terms of blogging – I didn’t even hit half the days of the year. Part of me felt like, I was being such a bad writer, why blog about that? But a lot … Continue reading

Christmas is Over – Now What?

Christmas is over, which  means the New Year is fast approaching – and thank god. This year has been rife with some ups and many, many downs. I had so many ideas that I could not follow through on, so many goals I set that I did not achieve. But really that isn’t the worst … Continue reading
