I’ve been writing about and sharing my life online on-and-off since I first got a LiveJournal account around 20 years ago (sometime in the year 2001). One of the things I liked about LiveJournal was that you could filter your audience because there was an actual community there, and you could learn about others and … More When I Blog and Use Social Media, I Write for Myself and My Friends… Though I Have a Wider Audience

She’s also running a giveaway to coincide with the release of Femmes du Chaos (pictured, right), which includes that and other books (like my novel, Adrift), and an Amazon voucher as the … More Interview with Kristen Duvall, Author of Femmes du Chaos

One week until the release of Adrift (and another giveaway)

The last month has been pretty busy for me. I travelled to New Zealand to meet my partner at Solarwyrm Press, Jax Goss, followed by a trip to Melbourne, Australia, for the Melbourne Writers Festival, which I hope to write about separately another time.
