The Origin of the Svatura Lights

One of the more unique characteristics in the Svatura series (at least in my opinion) came from two random suggestions, both from a somewhat unexpected source – my parents. First, a little background. The series features a group of people – known as the Svatura – who have extraordinary powers, each one a little different from any others and can be physical, mental, etc. … Read More The Origin of the Svatura Lights

Svatura Aging Timeline

I’m going to geek out in this blog post – just warning you up front. While I have a creative side that is expressed through my writing, by day I am a business analyst and totally love my spreadsheets.

Taking Advantage of the Opportunity to Revise

As many of you know, my upcoming releases – the 4 books of the Svatura series – were originally self-published. My publisher, The Wild Rose Press, contracted them in January and we’ll be released all 4 in October. It’s now been 3 years since I released the first book (my first book ever). In that time I’ve written 8 more books and several short stories; I’ve worked … Read More Taking Advantage of the Opportunity to Revise

The Bubble Gum Scene

One of my favorite write-related memes says, “Be careful or you might end up in my book.” There’s a particular scene in one of my Svatura books that is an excellent, and ridiculous, example of this. A little history first… I wrote most of the Svatura series books while in the middle of my MBA program. It was a cohort style program, and I became really … Read More The Bubble Gum Scene

Character Breakdown: Lila & Ramsey

I’m working on edits for Crimson Dahlia this week and going through old notes to make sure I don’t change anything critical. I thought I’d share these character breakdowns with you for fun. These days – after taking an awesome workshop by Anna Stewart and Mel Curtis – I do a character breakdown before I start writing. I  use a great book (The Complete Writer’s … Read More Character Breakdown: Lila & Ramsey
