Rantings, ravings, world domination. Welcome to my blog!

I’m a writer – as my profession, as a necessity, and as a way to get out all the awesome (hehe :)) Professionally, I don’t procrastinate. I am fast and on-to-it. I like to jump in, bang the keyboard, and beat the deadline. But as an artist? I don’t have the same drive – I […]

I’ve only seen this a few times, because it makes me cry every time. It’s about three minutes in, Ellen’s just joking with Kristen – but her reaction is so many emotions at once that it just kills me. We should all have something in our lives like this; something that even just the thought […]

All I can eat

Some people hoard photos of pets they have loved. Me, I hoard photos of wedges I have eaten. I love wedges. I can (and have) eaten them every day for long periods. I have eaten them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. They are beautifully contrasting with smooth and crispy, hot and cool, sweet and […]

Las Vegas, Nevada is one of my favourite places in the world. I’ve been twice (once for two whole weeks :)), and can’t wait to go again. For me, Las Vegas is a beautiful, peaceful, world within a world. It’s awesomely exaggerated, and impressively intricate. Plus, there is So. Much. Evil. Food.

Something most people don’t know about me is that I had a skin condition as a kid and was told I’d lose all my hair. I didn’t, but it certainly made cutting it short and making it blue less of a drama. (And always puts bad hair days in perspective.)


“Stalking is caring enough about someone to learn things about them they won’t tell you themselves.” There’s not much about me you can’t find on the internet. If it’s electronic, it exists. As for what I put out there on purpose, that’s trickier. I love reading about other people’s personal lives – what their family […]


If I could teleport to anywhere in the universe, it would be inside other people.  Not like Innerspace, zipping through arteries and other assorted icky what-not. More like sitting in the control tower so I could see the cogs turn and feel the blood pump. We are messy meatbags of intricately constructed thought and emotion. […]

Are you sure you have the right name? How do you know? I’ve never felt like my first name is mine. As a kid I wrote stories using different names to try and find the one that “felt right.” (It didn’t happen, but seemed like a good strategy.) I still wonder if one day I’ll […]

I’ll tell you what makes me suspicious. Surprise help. So, when I get a random email from a library saying “you’re a very popular author at our library” and “would you be interested in being our April Author or the Month?” I don’t go, “yay!” I go, “whatever.” (And then I do some follow up, […]
