Rainy Day Inspiration

I've been told that people like it when authors share writing tips, so I've starting doing that on my Instagram page. But today, I wanted to go into more detail than I tend to on those posts and talk about one of the things...

River of Crows wins Silver Medal

The big news of the day is that River of Crows has just been listed as a 2023 Wishing Shelf Book Awards Silver Medal Winner in the "Books for 9-12 year-olds" category, and I'm celebrating with a sale! For a limited time you...

River of Crows Bookaversary Giveaway!

So, I was looking at my calendar (I finally have it back up on the wall) and suddenly realized that I missed a major milestone that should have been a big cause for celebration. One year ago, I took a great big breath and sent my first 'lil Arcanium book-baby out into...

Mirror of Wolves Launch Day Flop

Mirror of Wolves Launch Day Flop

March Reading Recap

March Reading Recap

March in Ottawa, where I live, should be a melty kind of month where the temperatures steadily increase. This year, we just keep getting more snow, which is really starting to weigh on me. I'm done with winter and I want it to just go away now. This has also,...

The proof is in the pudding…

The proof is in the pudding…

Okay, so I lied. In this case, the proof is actually in my hand. Literally. There's no actual pudding in this post. (I know, I know... you're terribly disappointed now, aren't you?) But never fear, for I have something better than pudding to share! Behold my shiny new...
