Random Updates!

It's been a hot minute since I've blogged anything. To be honest, my website (and blog) were out of commission for a few months due to a certificate issue between Google and my domain name provider. I got that fixed up, and both my site and blog are back online! In the meantime, I stopped working on my original manuscript ( DIE ) and moved back to an old idea that I had shelved—tentatively titled, DROWN . Hint: I like my one-word titles but have no idea if they will stick around. Also, I got hooked on collecting old Marvel G.I. Joe comics. The original run from 1982-1994 that I grew up on. I got a later issue today, bringing my total to 66 out of the full 155-issue run. My goal is get all 155 issues, and then create a second blog where I read each issue and talk about the full comic (along with pics of my favorite panels), plus rating, from 1-155. I'm actually really looking forward to that, although it will take me quite a while to get my hands on all 155 issues. The later

My Top 10 Books That I Have Loved

I posted this a while back on my personal Facebook page but might as well blog about it here. It was also up on my old blog (you can still see it on my Goodreads Author Page ) but I needed something for my new blog and people's favorite books are always interesting, in my honest opinion. These are My Top 10 Books That I Have Loved . It was supposed to be with no explanation or criticism, but I've added a bit about each book and what they mean to me. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. One of the few school-required books that I loved. Should be required reading for every human being. IT by Stephen King. The most obvious choice. I'm sure it surprises no one that Stephen King's IT is one of my faves. His best book by far, although the overall Gunslinger story arc rivals it as his best story. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. Canada's greatest living author and what is, IMHO, her best book. The Handmaid's Tale gets more attention thanks to the show, but this

The October Blog Post

Hi! And welcome to my first blog post on my new website. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing, so I don't know how well this is going to turn out. I'm in the middle of classes at Emerson College in their Popular Fiction and Publishing MFA program. I'm in my second year now, and I have one year left, which would have me graduating after the Summer 2024 semester. To be honest, I don't know what I'm going to do after I graduate. The dream is to have a completed book that I can shop around. But barring that, I might look to change careers and see if I can get my foot in the door of a publishing house. If I can't write, I would love to be an editor. I don't have much to write at the moment, so I'm going to close with some ideas that I hope will become running components of my blog: What I'm watching : Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power  on Amazon Prime What I'm reading  (all of these are currently school books): Online Marketing for Busy Au
