Impossible Dream

November 26th, 2022 I tried several times to NOT write this book. Let me start at the beginning: I wanted to write something to celebrate my tenth year of publishing in 2023. I was trying to think of a way to get all my characters in one place. Let me tell you what I didn’tContinue reading “Impossible Dream”

The Language of Darkness

November 25th, 2022 There’s something you feel when someone ends their own life that feels either unnatural or completely understandable. It’s something I’ve explored a lot, in essays like these, and in fictional characters like Liam, in the book Push, and Axis in The Weirdos. I had the realization that I had said unnatural orContinue reading “The Language of Darkness”

Twin Cities Con 2022 This Weekend!!

November 9th, 2022 It’s only a little over 24 hours until Twin Cities Con 2022 begins! I’ll be there ALL weekend to talk my work, your work, nerd stuff, geek things and, if none of that sounds good to you, the weather. That weather. I’ll have all of my books available! I’ll have 20 limitedContinue reading “Twin Cities Con 2022 This Weekend!!”

Accessible Excellence

August 18th, 2022 The most common thing said about my books comes across as backhanded, but I’ve come to realize it aligns with what I want to do as a writer so completely. The song goes: “I am not a big reader, but I really liked your book.” Usually followed by the encore of: “IContinue reading “Accessible Excellence”

In Dreams: The Sandman, Flip, and Push

August 8th, 2022 I finished the first season of The Sandman on Netflix this afternoon. As a massive Sandman fan, for years, I personally think it is a better-than-perfect adaptation of the source material. I also want to add how well the series is cast; Tom Sturridge as Dream is the single best casting choiceContinue reading “In Dreams: The Sandman, Flip, and Push”

Introduction v.2022

July 20th, 2022 How does a person get another person to like them the first time they meet? That’s what required of us when we write these stupid distillations of ourselves. If you hate me two sentences in, then I lose you. Definitely for the moment, most likely for today, and possibly forever. No pressure.Continue reading “Introduction v.2022”

Building an Afterlife

June 4th, 2022 I’m writing this while my human blood is still mostly replaced with coffee, so I hope it’s coherent. A giant hug and a supermassive thank you to the kind souls who came out to support me today; I don’t know what I did in dreams or a previous life to get youContinue reading “Building an Afterlife”

a small word

March 23rd, 2022 Last night, I got to take part in a really special interview/conversation (hopefully I can share details soon!). The fun part of interviews is that it doesn’t matter how much you prepare; you don’t know what someone is going to ask you, and you never know what you’re going to say untilContinue reading “a small word”

i made this for your fridge

March 10th, 2022 I’m a firm believer that when I have feelings while I’m creating something that it will hold those feelings and then give them to the person who experiences the art. From my personal interactions, this seems to be true. I’ve had people reach out after reading something and say, “When I gotContinue reading “i made this for your fridge”

Suggestion Box

February 10, 2022 My dog Marvel and I are working on stuff, and we would love your input; we want to hear your thoughts and suggestions! I’m putting together ideas for merchandise, both for purchase at my store/conventions, and for incentive gifts when people support my work. So what do you want to see?
