A New Direction

If you look at the dates on my blog, I haven’t exactly been the best at keeping it up. That’s because I’ve struggled to find topics I feel my readers will be interested in. This last weekend, however, I was given the opportunity to teach a class on self-publishing at the League of Utah Writers […]

The Nicest Review I Have Ever Received

Margaret Turley wrote this review for Keeper of the Wolves that truly means the world to me. When you put out a book, you do so with your soul on the page and your heart in your throat because you never really know how it is going to be received. This review truly made it […]
