Understanding the Fruit Bowl

I was sitting in my living room with my husband, Mr. Stacy, watching a movie. Part way through he felt a little peckish and got up and went to the kitchen to get a little something to eat. He came back in with some fruit. It's his habit to bring a bit extra because he... Continue Reading →


I've been busy with trying to get baasho up and running through my publishing house, so I haven't been as prolific with all the writing that I would like.

Don’t Believe the Billboard

I went out with friends rather recently for my birthday. I had promised myself that I would be done with the current draft of Granny Rose and the Orb and I was not. I'm still not. Work had been leaving me rather tired and braindead and not really up to the task of writing. I could... Continue Reading →

Granny Rose and the Heart Shaped Box

I've been getting closer to completion on my current novel "Granny Rose and the Orb" and so I was really working on character development. Over Valentine's day, I was inspired to work through some character interactions related to the holiday and what might happen between a minotaur and my lead character. Enjoy. “I want that.”...
