If you’re anything like me, you probably have other things going on outside of writing. Sad, right? 😊 Just kidding. We need balance, too. We can’t just live in our happy (or sometimes, not so happy) fictional worlds forever. Be it work, school, family, church – life – it all takes up time. And sometimes, balancing writing with the rest of your life can be difficult.Continue reading
Well, it’s that time again – as you can tell from the title, this is an update on my writing endeavors. Last month, I officially released Unknown, which was so exciting but also quite tiring. It was definitely a dream come true, but I still have a lot to go in learning how to be an author. 🙂 I got that book submitted right before my college semester started, thank the Lord, so now I can focus mostly on school while still balancing writing alongside college.Continue reading
When I first wrote the books in the Grace Sufficient series, I hadn’t really researched religious freedom or churches in Russia. Most of my research was directed toward the Soviet years, because I assumed there would be more restrictions during that time.

Well, this story begins very long along, in a distant land … just kidding. It does seem like a very long time ago when I first started writing Unknown back in late 2018. I’d just come off of writing a trilogy of Civil War books (what I consider my first “real” and finished books.) For some reason, I decided I wanted a change of pace and chose to write something in a modern setting.
And then somehow, I decided to set it in Russia. And why’s that?Continue reading

Welcome to the launch week for Unknown! I am so excited to share this story with all of you guys. This week’s blog posts will be all about the book, including signups if you’d like to read and review a free copy of it (coming tomorrow!) I’ll be talking about my inspiration and original ideas for Unknown, along with the reason behind the series name and all kinds of interesting extraneous – though hopefully interesting – information. 🙂 And of course, feel free to ask me any questions in the comments below … no spoilers, though. 🙂Continue reading
I have a confession to make. I was supposed to write a post for today. But it didn’t happen on Wednesday, nor on Thursday, and by today, I was not feeling up to writing any of my potential posts. (And yes, I am a terrible blogger in all regards, because I didn’t even have a backup post written.)Continue reading
