My Stupor of Thought and Storytellers Who Slay

This weekend, I got to meet the ultimate storyteller, Maggie Stiefvater. Now I have met recognizable individuals and celebrities before, and I’ve always thought it was so dumb that people act funny around them. They’re just people right? Haha. Well, I was that speechless, frozen idiot when I met Maggie. Apparently you just need to […]

Magical Things Like Book Boyfriends and Free Books

I’m signing and mailing a few books to some MERMINIA fans that have made this such an amazing summer.

What a Spoiled Brat!

Oh, somebody got spoiled rotten for their birthday. Marie McKean is not only my best beastie (yes beastie)  forever, but before she was one of my favorite people she was one of my favorite authors. Once Within just came out, and it’s the sort of brilliant, vivid storytelling that makes the Caradoc Chronicles such a […]

Gone Fishing

This was my weekend. I swear to you, there’s no filter or editing of this photo. I’m not a fan of a cold Utah winter, but summers here are pretty hard to beat. We had an amazing day with family, chilling by the lake. And I had some grilled trout with lemon and smothered in […]
