Holy hell has August been a crazy month!
Between some really cool publishing opportunities that I’ve been presented with, a few large scale projects, and my new role as Program Director for 9th Story Studios, I haven’t had a chance to update this blog in a long time. Continue reading “Busy August, Bright September”
So, never one to settle, I’ve changed jobs… again. As much as I was excited to start my job in marketing I realized about twenty minutes into my day that it just wasn’t for me. As much as I hate the financial instability that comes with freelancing- and there is financial instability that comes with it- it’s what I love doing. And I’m happy that I’m back doing it. Continue reading “Podcasts, Anthologies, And A Novel… Oh My!”
This past weekend (July 3rd to the 5th) was the Montreal Comiccon and was it ever fun! They had amazing guests, artists, exhibitors, and activities for everyone to enjoy and it was such a thrill to be included in such an amazing ensemble.

Hey everyone, due to an unforeseen delay I’ll be posting the workshop notes from Witches, Werewolves, and Wraiths: A Writer’s Guide to Monster Making tomorrow (Tuesday, July 7) along with the notes from last year’s Bikinis, Brains, and Boogeymen: How to Write Realistic Women in Horror.
Thanks for understanding and check back tomorrow night for the notes!
It’s finally here!
My story “Stuck” has finally come out on The Wicked Library and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it if I tried. The story originally came out in 2014 through Sanitarium Magazine but was accepted into the sixth season of the podcast earlier this year. I’d only discovered them in their fourth season, when Nelson W. Pyles was still the host, and I nearly passed out when I got the letter saying my short story had been accepted into the newest season.

I’ve finally graduated from university in creative writing. Well, to be fair, it was official a while ago but I actually have the diploma to prove it now. I spent the better part of my day in a stuffy hall with 500 of my peers (of which I only recognized six), dressed in heavy black robes that made us all look like we were off to Hogwarts. All of the women had sleek dresses, high heels, and amazing hair and makeup. The men had their pressed shirts, dress pants, and polished shoes on. Continue reading “So Long School, Hello Life!”
It’s never easy quitting a job.
Ok, that’s a lie. Some jobs are only too easy to quit, and the real challenge is trying to stick them out.
Fortunately that wasn’t the case with the job I left today. I’ve worked as a journalist for Shalom Life for just over a year now. This Jewish lifestyle publication took a chance on me, a Wiccan writer, when no one else would and I’ll forever be grateful to them. They showed me the ropes of journalism, helped me build up my portfolio, and allowed me to work with some incredible people. I’m definitely going to miss them.

This past weekend was the Ottawa Comiccon, and holly hell was it amazing! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it on the Friday or Saturday, but I attended the convention for all of Sunday and it was easily one of the greatest conventions I’ve been to. Continue reading “Thanks Ottawa! Hope To See You Next Year”
I can’t believe the weekend is finally here! I’ve been counting down the days until the Ottawa Comiccon for so long that it’s hard to believe it’s actually here. Although, to be honest, I’m oddly conflicted about the presentation I have to give tomorrow. Continue reading “Off To Ottawa!”
I just wanted to give a great big thank you to 9th Story for telling their listeners about my upcoming workshop, entitled “Bikinis, Brains, And Boogeymen,” which will be at this year’s Ottawa Comiccon. It was so nice of them and beyond appreciated. Continue reading “Thank You 9th Story!”
