Three Sci-Fi Shows You Should Be Watching…But Probably Aren’t

I’m so geeked about my first geeky post!  I’m a huge fan of science fiction, fantasy, & historical fiction.  Post apocalyptic, time travel, dungeons and dragons – books, movies and tv series are my thing.  I’m actually watching AMC’s The Walking Dead marathon as I type this – super excited it returns tonight!  I’m still mourning [SPOILER… Continue reading Three Sci-Fi Shows You Should Be Watching…But Probably Aren’t

A Writer Who Doesn’t Write

There’s nothing worse than a writer who doesn’t write. Well, actually there are many things worse than that, but you get the point. Organizing your thoughts to produce creative work can be a daunting task. The reason, I believe, is because to be a great writer one must be truly authentic. Raw. Genuine. Relatable. Able… Continue reading A Writer Who Doesn’t Write
