Traits Writers Have in Common – What I Learned from an Author Panel

Author panels are meant for the audience to learn about authors and their books. But, the authors themselves can learn a few things too, like what they have in common.

Monday Blogs: Best Bada#! Female Characters and Why We Love Them

I love strong female characters. And since it's women's history month, I thought a blog about some of my favorite badass female characters in TV, movies and literature and why they rock, would be fun. So here it goes!

My 2017 New Years Book Resolutions: Reading Challenge 2017

It's the New Year. That means it's time for resolutions. I've decided to make my own 2017 reading challenge list as part of my New Years Reading Resolution.

Crazy in NYC: Traveling with The Travelers Day 1!

The Travelers took a little tour of New York City along with the dance company my daughter is a part of (C4 Dance Company) yesterday. (I luckily got to come with them!) The Travelers also had a little pal. (Jane Bennet from Pride and Prejudice Zombies.) She shares the same last name as the main characters in my book (Dagny Bennet and her family). She's also a sassy girl from a fantasy book with connections to the past, like my book. Plus, I have a recent obsession with POP figurines. So she seemed like a great side kick for our little trip through the city. It all began Sunday night...

Everyone has a guilty reading pleasure, right? Well, in my world my characters do also. Therefore, in this blog I’m going to talk about the books my characters would recommend and their secret guilty pleasures, including books on vampires, zombies (ooo, shiver), pants (yes, you read that right, pants) and Mandalas.

Only a few more days until Halloween! So let’s talk costumes. What costume do you think is the most popular? Well, this awesome graphic from I found on the NPR website shows the trends in costumes from 2009 to 2013. Zombies - How I Dislike Thee, Let Me Count the Ways I can't seem to escape the brain-eaters! I don't even watch the 'Walking Dead' and I'm still traumatized just from the media coverage.

Journey in Origins: Where Do Zombies Come From?

It’s the age old question every child asks their parents – Mommy, Daddy, where do zombies come from? Well, I, for one, have never really loved zombies. (I mean no one loves zombies, right? They’re gross.) But, people love to watch zombies terrorize and destroy the world. I haven’t been “bitten” by the zombie book/TV show/movie craze. I can't recall reading any zombie books. I can't handle watching The Walking Dead. (I tried to watch one episode with my husband. I got about five minutes and one formerly cute blond child turned zombie in before I said “Nope. I’m out of here.”)
