Last week I was trying to figure out a way to make my author website look better. And after driving myself completely crazy, I decided to move it off of WordPress all together. So, take a gander at my new website. It was really fun to make and I hope it looks nice!! If you … Continue reading My Brand Spankin’ New Website

Last week, I finished The Mad Wolf's Daughter by Diane Magras. Just like with Be Prepared, I wasn't sure I was going to like this one either. But I did. 🙂 The Mad Wolf's Daughter is about a girl named Drest and her quest to free her brothers and father after they were captured. Along … Continue reading The Mad Wolf’s Daughter Book Review
Yes, I know I probably should've asked this sooner, but does anyone here review poetry ebooks? This is both for future reference and now reference (look at my impressive terminology). I tried looking around but I couldn't really find anything or anyone. Also, if you review YA fantasy novels or short story collections I would … Continue reading Hello Book Reviewers 🙂

Or have I become the firefly, glowing with the heartbeat of others hoping my light will reach you and pull … Continue reading Questions in the Night
Just finished this book Be Prepared by Vera Brosgol. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to request it from the library, but I did and I am happy I did. It's a cool memior-ish graphic novel about Vera when she was younger. Back at home she didn't quite fit in with her … Continue reading Be Prepared…
I'm free and trapped, you say? Maybe you're right. I let the air and light raise my sheets and twirl in summer pollen. Night cools the earth and I get out my silk key. I can't come out, not yet. Like my poetry? Grab a copy of Popsicles: A summer through poetry.
I will open again whispered the white window. While it rained a blissful glow contrast to the biting inside. Me, clinging to my blankets head to toe in snow. Perched on the bed waiting feeding on my memories rationed as if they won't last the winter, this dreadful cold. Tears to fresh ice, slick … Continue reading The White Window
On this blog, I don't usually rant about things. This is my peaceful space where I can just write poetry and enjoy myself. I don't usually post anything ranty for that matter, just in case someone is going to blacklist me for a few choice words. Today is different.
