Did you know I have a newsletter?

I talk about writing, films and filmmaking, books, television, and social media; juggling a full-time job, caregiving, and small patches of writing time; and the obstacles that love to fling themselves in our creative path! 

I also post alerts for upcoming YouTube content, chapter excerpts, other book-related goodies, and updates about The Wilder Life, as Fred and I work to replace our old studio on a teeny tiny scale. Not only that, you’ll be the first to know when the presale of my debut novel, Mark of The Champion, begins. All for the low, low price of Free!
