So once upon a time my friend Nisa had a bad day, so I wrote her a novel. I literally sent her about a chapter a day. This fun little book became my first published novel titled Nameless: The Darkness Comes.  It’s fun, crazy, snarky, creepy, and has a healthy dose of the paranormal and hard, grueling reality.

From the Vein to the Page: Harnessing Your Personal Demons

People used to ask me how I’d write. Was there a magical formula? Did I have the writing room set up just so? Was there a special snack or drink or set of pajamas, or something specific that made my Muse lay a hand on my shoulder and unfurl her wings? “It isn’t like that,” I’d say. “I simply open … Read More
