Hello and welcome to my little corner of the internet! Here you’ll find the stories I have written to explore, experiment and share the craft of writing. I like to keep them under 1000 words so you can just grab a quick break and visit another time, place or world. Occasionally I will do serials following a single character and every so often I will post about my writing process, particularly as it relates to improving my craft or the quality of the novel I am currently working on.
Now for the bit about me… I grew up in rural Pennsylvania and spent most of my childhood in the forest around my home. I have always had a deep interest in history and fantasy and studying abroad during college deepened my interest in both. Two years ago I was offered the opportunity to move to Norway (!) and become an Au Pair (think Mary Poppins.)
While in Norway I became involved with the Living History and Historical Reenactment community. This is a vibrant community of people dedicated to re-creating the crafts, military techniques and daily life of the viking and medieval periods. As a writer this was been a gold mine of interesting facts, people and most of all battle scene choreography!
I look forward to chatting with you about my writing, your writing or writing in general! Discussing the process and the trials is all part of the joy of practicing this wonderful craft. Please reach out to me on Twitter, Facebook or here through my contact form. I do have a day job so there may be a day or so delay in responses. 🙂
Here are a few photos of me doing my favorite things, reenactment and living history!
