    I’ve always loved the paranormal.

    I’ve been on ghost hunts, to seances, had my tarot cards read, and even had aura photography done at a metaphysical event. I love secret societies and unsolved mysteries. However, one of my strangest encounters though, didn’t directly involve the paranormal. I was driving through Atoka, Oklahoma and stopped at this little antique store. (Side note: If you love antiques as much as I do, check out the little hole-in-the-wall places in the south. They’re some of the best.). While I was looking through some of their treasures, I overheard three of the people in the store talking. It went something like this: “So, did you smell it last night?”…

    YA Scavenger Hunt!

      It’s that time of year again! I’ll be part of the YA Scavenger Hunt on the PURPLE team! The hunt will run from April 3rd until April 8th so you’ll hopefully have plenty of time to participate. Don’t know what the YA Scavenger Hunt is? You choose a team (c’mon, we all know you love the color purple the best, right?) but I suppose you can pick any of the colors if you want, or all of them if you want extra chances to win. Then you start at one of the author’s websites, and they’ll tell you a bit about an author they’re hosting, offer a teaser, inspiration…

    A little late, but Darkness Burning Brightly is coming!

    I’ve finally got Darkness Burning Brightly up for pre-order,  and if you haven’t seen the cover, I’ll post it here. It’s gorgeous! It’ll be released on May 28th, so if you pre-order your copy, it’ll be delivered to your kindle as soon as it’s released. In other news, for some reason I decided to draft ANOTHER book next month with my students. I’m nuts. Like, seriously. As if I don’t have enough to do. But writing is fun, and writing with others is contagious, and exciting, and I love seeing the exhilaration on my students’ faces when they talk about their stories and ask me to share details of mine.…

    As I sit here on the 30th of December…

    Unsolved Mysteries plays in the background, as does as baby monitor so I can listen to my little one sleep. Scrivener’s pulled up, with book three of the Darkness Falls series on it, and I just finished updating my main page with information on What Darkness Hides. 2017 has been a challenging year on a lot of levels, but I’ve learned a lot about perseverance. I can’t control everything, but that I need to focus on what I can. What are you going to focus on for the new year? My resolution: spend more time looking up. Stop letting life and everything else get me down and focus on what…

    Are you ready yet?

    I’m working on the final read-through of Harbinger (even though I know there’s always something I miss), and I’m starting to freak out. I can’t believe this trilogy, this series that was born so long ago, is finally coming to an end. I won’t give out any spoilers, but I love it. It’s perfect and terrible and awesome and everything else all rolled into one. It’s the only way it could end, and one of many ways it could end, all at the same time. The possibilities when I started were endless, but as the series grew, there became only one possible way. This way. I hope you like it.…

    Happens every time…

    Every time I plan on releasing a book, I go into it thinking I’m going to some elaborate cover reveal and really get people excited, but in the end, I’m too excited and impatient myself to hold on to the secret much longer. So, without further adieu, here’s the cover for Harbinger, book three of the Live Once Trilogy. I’m working on a pre-order right now, and I’ll send out a  link when it’s ready. Are you excited? I know I am!
