Con Report: In Your Write Mind 2019

Last weekend, I spent four wonderful days at one of my favorite places on Earth. In Your Write Mind is a writing workshop hosted by alumni of the Seton Hill University Writing Popular Fiction graduate program, of which I am part. It’s the time of year when I recharge my writing batteries by surrounding myself […]

June Wrap-Up & July Goals

I just got home from another fantastic visit to Seton Hill University for the annual In Your Write Mind workshop. I had a blast. I’m exhausted. Let’s do this. In case you missed it, the cover reveal for Steel Shadows (Steel Empires #5) was announced this month! Isn’t it beautiful? Pre-orders are now available, and […]

October Wrap-Up & November Goals

Another month has flown by in a fun and bewildering blur! I’m writing this post on Halloween, and my biggest dilemma right now is figuring out what to wear while I hand out candy tonight. Oh, and write two thousand words so that I can kick off NaNoWriMo at an even 10k. Yep, you read […]

December Wrap-Up & January Goals

Happy new year from all of us at Casa Siamese! Though you won’t see this post until it goes live on Wednesday morning, I’m writing it late Monday afternoon with a tummy full of amazing New Year’s Day brunch and a hot mug of tea. I’m excited to start 2018 with a bang, and by […]

August Wrap-Up & September Goals

Another slow month production-wise, another stressful month regarding real life. I’m having a hard time living by myself, and disaster struck one of my favorite places in the world earlier this month. August Wrap-Up: I aimed for 15k to 20k words drafted for book 4. I am actually impressed that I ended the month with […]

Bean Hollow

Tomorrow night, I should be meeting my writing group at an amazing local coffeehouse in Historic Ellicott City. But I can’t, because it is functionally gone. As a military brat, I’m only a transplant to Howard County, Maryland. I’ve been here since I finished undergrad, because it was where my parents happened to be stationed […]

June Wrap-Up & July Goals

June has definitely been one of my rougher months in recent memory. The bad news is that I don’t feel like I got as far on a lot of my projects as I wish I could be. The good news is that I’m spending the long holiday weekend with my husband! Mississippi is hot and […]

STEEL MAGIC: Parisii, City of Light and Darkness

With clues leading to the old world of Europa ahead of them, and enemies behind them, Toria and Kane cross an ocean to reach Parisii. This ancient city has changed hands multiple times over the centuries between Roman and British control, with occasional bouts of independence. Will the warrior-mages find what they’re searching for in […]
