I will admit, I read this book quite a while ago so I don't remember a lot of the little details, but I still wanted to post a little something about it. The last time my husband and I made it to C2E2 in Chicago (an amazing comic/art/book/gaming expo), we received a free copy of … Continue reading Book Review: Night Owls by Lauren M. Roy
Hello to everyone in the digital world. It's been about four months since I started this blog and there's been a lot going on. Real life is treating me well, busy at work and traveling a lot (Michigan, Great Britain, Scotland, New York, meandering around Wisconsin as well). My creative life has been pushed to … Continue reading Hello Cyber Friends: Update!
My art journal has been a bit neglected lately... I had a smidgen of inspiration the other day and this is what it morphed into. So, here for your viewing pleasure- winged doodles!
On our trip to London, I tried to find books by British authors, novels that I wouldn't normally see advertised in the states to "expand my horizons". I discovered this gem in Hatchard's and determined the issue with buying foreign authors... I fell in love with the book and can't find a U.S. book store … Continue reading Book Review: Fated by Benedict Jacka
I'm a small town girl at heart; having grown up in a city with more cows than people, you tend to enjoy the simple pleasures of nature.

This was one of my recent finds in the audio book section of our local library, so I decided to give it a shot. The Excerpt: According to The Nice and Accurate … Continue reading Book Review: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
Ugh... Why does life have to get in the way of writing? I was gone traveling out of state for more than two weeks over the last month and a half, meaning I spent most of my time back home attempting to get caught up on life. Work has been insanely busy and we've been … Continue reading Writing Update: Snatched
Back home again after another trek across the country! Our church youth group just got back from a mission trip to New York, which I have to say was amazing. We worked with some wonderful organizations including Broadway Presbyterian Church, the McKinley Children's Garden in Queens, and "Don't Walk By" which is part of New … Continue reading Travel Update: New York Skyline
On our trip to London, my husband and I stocked up on books. Kind of a strange souvenir choice, but hey, we're bibliophiles. We tried to focus on books that were written by British authors, novels we couldn't get as easily in the United States. My first bookstore find was at a ridiculously beautiful, multistory … Continue reading Book Review: Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch
