Odd Sock Mountain: The Apocalypse.

This was written straight into Facebook messenger to my best friend. Never let it be said that I am a super serious author who’s too uptight. Odd Sock Mountain: The apocalypse. The time had come. The moment I’d been dreading for every waking moment, for what felt like an eternity. I gripped my weapon of…

Blood Of The Wolf (Forged In Blood Book 1) Opening/Prologue.

This is the scene that got this series rolling in my head. It’ll be the opening/prologue. It’s first draft, my editor hasn’t seen it yet. Opening Scene.   The world had changed. It felt as though it had happened over night, and I suppose, for some people it had. Yet if you looked closely you…

The Nine Magpies Part TWO

Part two of my fun little urban fantasy project that was born from the question, “What if you could rock up to a bar and buy the services of a muse?” Part one can be read here.       Muses take something from the artist in exchange for the inspiration they give. Some feed…

The Nine Magpies – Part ONE

I was sitting and thinking about random things as I’m prone to doing, and an image came to me – a seedy bar where you can buy the services of muses. It grew in my mind and now it’s my second fun writing project! This is completely unedited, and written for my own entertainment to…

The Shadow & The Thief.

I need a fun project, something written purely for my own entertainment. I’ve been trying to write one for a few months now and you know what, I think I’ve finally got one! As I’m a storyteller and I write for an audience, I’m sharing it with you 😀 It’s first draft, completely unedited, and…

Baby Steps – A scene from the Ink World.

Those who’ve read Blood & Ink and Ink Bound can probably guess who this pair is. It had taken me days to build up the courage, and still my heart fluttered in my chest and my feet threatened to carry me far, far, away. I swallowed down my fear and began the game we’d played…

Snippets & Moments From The Ink World

I’m too ill to write full short stories at the moment, but I have Kaitlyn Felis, protagonist of Hidden Alchemy on my mind at the moment. So I wrote out a moment that’s important to her. A single scene that may, or may not, stand alone. The moment she collected her first artifact. It felt as…

Pet Peeve: small woman rules over the big bad shifter pack.

I have put down quite a few books the moment I saw this trope. We all have those particular tropes that we just cannot stand. This is one of those for me. The trope in summary: A small human woman, usually with some small degree of magic and a huge attitude, rules over the big…

Drink That Muse.

I wrote this when tipsy. It was inspired by a comment my dear twin Mollie made.   The world changed when they found that you could capture and distill muses. Gone were the days of slave driving women and aloof men. No longer were creatives found sprawled out over their masterpieces, the life drained from…

First Kiss

This is tied in to my published books (names are removed to stop any spoilers).
