Book Review: “American Witches” by Susan Fair

This is a nonfiction book that covers witches in America from the first accusations as they crossed the ocean to the New World all the way up to the Blair Witch phenomena. Going in, I thought it would be an interesting read but possibly dry, but boy was I wrong! Susan Fair has a great sense of humor and looks at the events of the past with a skeptical and sarcastic lens.

Hamilton Fun Facts from the Play and Ron Chernow’s Book

Recently, I started reading Chernow's Hamilton. Of course, the inspiration to read this came from watching the infamous Broadway play on Disney+ this past July. I am only 18% through the book according to my Kindle, but there are so many fun facts I have learned already, so I thought I would share some with you.

French Revolution Timeline for my Upcoming Historical Fiction Loosely Inspired by “Beauty and the Beast” (And yes, I’m obsessive and it’s extensive)

I have compiled an extensive (and a bit obsessive) timeline of the French Revolution for my upcoming Historical Fiction. It's my first time writing a novel like this so I have not left out a single detail I've come across, not sure what I'm going to use, though I'm sure a ton of it will not make the cut. Enjoy!

When Inspiration Strikes A Writer

Sorry there was no blog post yesterday, but inspiration struck me and I got swept up in a book project. While I have about 20% of "Dead Road (Dead Soil book 2)" done, something else inspired me yesterday. I had two choices: ignore the inspiration and keep writing "Dead Road" or run with the inspiration and possibly fall behind on my current book. Luckily, the inspiration wasn't to start another story, but rather create a self-discovery journal.
