The nexus has fallen cover reveal

By golly.

It has taken a loooooong time. This project has stuck with me like an unshakable infection. Well, that’s not fair, the project is great, fantastic even. But the incompletion of this project has stuck with me.

And now I am rid of that incompletion.

The Nexus Has Fallen is finally here, available from Amazon in both ebook form and in print.

I hope you enjoy it.

Ah, who’m I kidding. I desperately yearn from the depths of my boots that ya’ll adore it and become Nexus missionaries, spreading the word amongst friends and insisting your Hollywood director cousin adapt it into a movie.

Please, my friends, read the book, review the book, share the book. Make me famous ‘n stuff.

And for those who have stuck with me for months or years, thank you.

Enjoy meeting the best friends I have had the pleasure of creating.


I am someone else…

I have ADHD

I know what it’s like to be someone else.

You see, I’m mentally ill, as they say. Fortunately for me, my illness is quite treatable. So treatable, in fact, I know what it’s like to be a different person.

It all started about a year ago. I was giving a talk in church about focusing on what’s important. I suck at that because I have this insatiable habit of collecting hobbies. I have, at one time or another, obsessed over ballroom dancing, woodworking, photography, web design, cabin building, blacksmithing, primitive bow making, permaculture design, and, of course, novel writing. (This is a very condensed list of hobbies, mind you).

I am happy when I don’t blog

Yes, I’m still here.

Why haven’t I blogged?

Well, the truth is I’m not blogging because I’ve found happiness.

Weird, huh?

I began this blog in September 2014. Why? Because I was miserable. I was working at a good job that wasn’t my dream job. And I’m not one who can find contentment without perfection. (That is, after all, why I married perfection herself). Read more »

I’m still here…barely

No, I’m not dead.

Let’s just say, I don’t have the emotional resources to write. It seems being a professor is time consuming.

Fortunately, the semester is coming to a close and I’ll have time to share some of the thoughts that have been going through my mind of late. In the mean time, I’m pushing back my book launch so I can focus on finishing the semester strong and taking a long mental bubble bath.

Peace out.

Maybe mouthy kids aren’t such a bad thing…

mouthy kids

You’ve seen the posts, haven’t you?

“If you were whipped as a kid, like, share, and comment.”

“Kids these days don’t know what it means to cut a switch from the yard.”

“If I talked back to my teacher, I’d get slapped. Share if you agree!”

The bruises we wear on our behinds, the back of our hands, and the insides of our psyches have become a badge of pride. Read more »
