The Importance of Reading as a Writer

As writers and authors, it's perfectly understandable how we can get caught up in our work. Sometimes it takes over and before you know it you've been at it for four hours without a break. Once you're on a roll it's hard to stop! But it's important to find balance in your life. It's ok to take a break to go to the bathroom and eat a meal. The idea will still be there, I promise! And if you're too worried it won't be, write the thought down quick before you walk away. As a sedimentary job, breaks should also include walking around or exercise, and oh yeah we still have families and friends and pets and other responsibilities too. When are we even supposed to find time for reading, the very thing that gave us the idea to be writers in the first place?!

My Riding Journal 2nd Edition and New Cover

My Riding Journal has been updated and now the 2nd edition and new cover is available on Amazon in paperback! I love this journal and I've never used it more than the last two months. I bought my first horse and learned what really goes into horse ownership and riding. That's why the journal needed an update. When I first designed it in 2018 I had only ever leased a horse so I didn't really understand the bond, the connection, the time and the work that went into a horse that was your own.

Character Inspiration for the Dead Soil World

I've finally started outlining and planning my third and final book in the Dead Soil trilogy, "Dead World". To help me stay on track with the characters and their changes and progressions I like to collect photos for character inspiration. It helps me to bring them to life in the story and I like to share that with my readers so they too can see what I'm seeing as I write and work on the story.
