Want to know what’s happening with my recent projects, but too busy to go rummaging through all my many pages? Hey, believe me, I know the feeling. So, for you busy people out there, both subscribers and non-subscribers, I’ve decided to make a quick and simple “news” page, where I’ll be posting short updates whenever something big (or not-so-big) happens. Updates to the site will go here, as well as my favorite new articles and any new projects I’m working on. I will be posting the newest updates at the top, so that you don’t have to scroll down too far to see the latest. Hey, you’re a busy person. I understand. It’s more work for me, but it’s worth it to save you some time. You’re welcome 😉
Disclaimer: This page may not always be updated right away. To ensure you’re seeing all my newest articles when they are posted, I suggest subscribing. Subscription forms can be found in the drop-down menu. But still, feel free to check this page out often, as it may sometimes contain new information not found in the articles!
Here Is The News 😉

I’ve been trying to work out the kinks with Mailchimp and get some sort of newsletter going for my subscribers, and I’m not quite there yet but at least I now have a subscribe form, which is more than I had before. So whether you’re new or an old subscriber who wants more, click HERE to go to my brand new subscribe form and sign up. Hopefully I’ll have the rest sorted out soon too!

Guess what. I’m now on Wattpad!
Guess what else. For a limited time, thanks to the #TNTHorrorContest, my short story #OverTheRiver is now FREE to read online! So if you still haven’t read it, now is your chance. My story has made it to the top 100, which means I need YOUR VOTE to have a chance at winning. Please do me a favor and vote for my story by clicking the star, as the contest winners get some pretty epic prizes, including the chance to have their story turned into an episode of Tales From The Crypt (yes that show is returning, with the one and only M. Night Shyamalan at the helm!) You can read it and vote HERE.
And the same goes for my hubby’s short story #NewYearsCleave too, which I edited and did the cover art for, and which is also entered in the contest. The link for that is HERE.

On October 30th, in conjunction with Halloween, my husband and I finally released our first song through our new music project Under The Dying Sun!

Introducing my brand new line breaker! You might have seen something similar on my business cards, and at least until I’m allowed to use my #Undying related design, I’ll be integrating this one into the site and in articles where needed. Hope you like it! I’ve also added this fancy new graphic on the home page of some testimonials from awesome people:

Remember the song I recently wrote for Stephen Zimmer based on his book Heart of a Lion? Well, that song is now being used in a campaign to get the #RaydenValkyrie TV pilot up and running. I also edited all the videos you will see on there, so check them out too! And please, if you can, consider donating to this project. We’re in need of a strong female warrior like Rayden Valkyrie and it would be awesome to see her world come to life on the screen. If you can’t donate, you can share! Help me spread the word so that this project can get the funding it desperately needs. Who knows, you could be helping make history! You can hear the song I wrote as well as read why I’m passionate about the project HERE, and you can see the whole Kickstarter campaign HERE.

At long last, I have added a “Bio” to my site. I’m calling it “Backstory” because of the whole writing thing, but it features tons of pictures from my younger years as well as tons of (possibly useless) information about myself and my past. I worked really hard on it, so check it out if you want to. Just click the brand new button below. Enjoy!

2 new mashups. First, if you missed my new article and mashup featuring The Walking Dead and 2 iconic songs covered by 2 great musicians and smooshed together, you can check that out HERE. Second, I uploaded a mashup with NO article to accompany it, so you might have missed it. That one can only be seen on my Youtube, HERE. It features 2 songs by Sia, sung by 3 people, in a pretty extensive mashup. So please, feel free to check it out!
