May 25th, 2012

So, one night, I was walking through this graveyard when this evil beast jumped out at me and tried to drink my blood when all of a sudden this hot, kickass slayer chick came out and shoved a wooden stake through his heart, turning him to dust. Okay, maybe that didn’t really happen. And maybe […]

March 21st, 2011

One thing that nearly all authors get asked at some point in their lives is this slightly maddening question: “Can you tell me how to write a novel?” We all have different answers for that.
