This is another one of those situations where I normally keep my counsel. IMHO, everything that could be said about this author has been, at least, about the situation itself and the people she hurt. It's hard not to at least speak of her once when she seems to be in EVERY NEWS OUTLET in… Continue reading Mini Musing 1/18/23 ~ A Brief Mention of Susan Meachen
And my resolution is... HA! I stopped doing resolutions years ago! What I learned in 2022 or 2022 in a nutshell. Yes, I'm an author. Thank you to Flame Tree Press and my fabulous agent, Anne Tibbets of the Donald Maas Literary Agency. Thank you for representing me and accepting Tinderbox and Tarotmancer. Here's to… Continue reading Mini-Musing 1-1-23. It’s a New Year! 2023!
There is almost nothing more annoying than trying to sign into a website, only to have it take you around in circles, requiring you to sign in again. How familiar are you peeps with the Mojo YouTube Channels? If you aren't, look them up. Their videos range from the hilarious to thought provoking. My idea… Continue reading Fantasy Novels by People of Color or Why can’t I sign into Ms. Mojo to suggest this subject as a video?
A few days ago, I asked about dreams. Well, I made a video, asking about dreams. https://youtu.be/_1LyMrBkKTY I asked people to tell me what were their dreams outside of writing and publishing. I said I'd love to see my work as a series, preferably animated but something I forgot to add, although I referenced it… Continue reading Musing 12-13-22. How the Comic/Manga Publishers are Missing Out!
I spoke to the nicest lady who is also a talented jazz singer and composer, the fabulous Adrienne West! I love meeting new people, especially fellow artists!

Presenting Adrienne West!
After seeing many posts on various Twitter feeds but no information, I was curious about the situation with Barnes and Noble. So of course I did one of my favorite things--researched. From what I'm understanding and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong-- Barnes and Noble will no longer be carrying hardcover copies of… Continue reading Musing 8/19/22 The B&N Controversy
AH-HAH! You thought I meant the publishers didn't you? I'm currently working on a project that involves my creating a soundtrack for Tinderbox. I've enjoyed doing so, but while searching for more songs, I recalled certain favorites and I realized I haven't listened to any of them in several years and I'm not sure why.… Continue reading Mini-Musing 08/06/22 – The Big Three

Back on May 12th, I commented on both Twitter and Facebook about the Buy Black Movement. Big Brother and I had watched a YouTube video explaining its origins. Since neither of us were familiar with it, I did my thing by researching. It's a wonderful idea and something sorely needed in the black community. However...… Continue reading The Buy Black Movement. What About Writers?

So I'm taking some time from my writing to clean the two inch thick layer of dust and cat hair from my office. I'm also listening to Neil Gaiman's MasterClass. He's speaking of that dreaded question that strikes terror into the hearts of all writers. "Where do you get your ideas from?" I asked an… Continue reading Mini-Musing ~ April 24th, 2022
Celebrate Women's History Month! I just finished watching The Guardians of Justice on Netflix. Why? I do not know. I was interested in seeing where yet another superhero series would do to further tarnish the very notion of superheroes. It didn't disappoint — or more accurately; it did. Filled with excessive violence, gore, blood, homophobia… Continue reading Musing 3/1/22 – What Happened to the Heroic Superheroes?
