So Much – Published Book

So much has happened over the years since I last posted. We all know the pandemic and the craziness with the economy, but my life has been interesting for sure. My children are growing well and we even hosted an exchange student from Japan up until the pandemic lockdowns sent her home. I also graduated with a B.S. in Information Technology Management. Some have asked what this degree is for and the best explanation along with my experience is a Business or Systems Architect.

On the bright side I have been able to publish a simple but important tool; an operations log book is a necessary tool for infrastructure. While not terribly difficult or complex, this gave me experience in the process of publishing anything. Also, I feel great about being able to supply aid to many various industries. If you need such a book, please check it out here.

Life is still nuts as we all know, but I’m feeling like I’ll get back to serious writing soon. It’s about being in the right state of mind to put the story to the page without forcing something subpar. My main character Daylan needs to have his story told, and soon. Well, I guess I’ll keep you posted… *smirk*

Major Writing Delay

I am sorry to post that there is a major delay in my progress. I haven’t abandoned my book series, or writing in general, but must take a hiatus due to the conflicts of 50 hour work week and full time school credits. Know that I haven’t abandoned writing altogether, and do make some minor notes here and there. When I have finished my degree, which will be about two years from now, I will once again return, finish, and publish my book and subsequent sequels. Until then, I bid you all, adieu.


Update October 2013

So here I am.

Yep, I’m actually here writing on this blog.

No, you aren’t just seeing things, I’m actually writing this…

Why has it taken so long for an update? Anything? …because I’ve been busy with life, that’s why.

So on with the update…

I’ve made some incredible progress, despite the slow nature of writing, working, moving, and attending school. I just finished outlining an important scene yesterday, that will bring a major twist to the plot of the story.

I’ve mostly been working on structure and outline the last few months. Due to the nature of writing a large saga, you must consider later installments in the first book. At least, in my case you do. I have the ending all planned, but to get there and keep things flowing in a realistic manner, I must keep things correlated. Some times I envy the seat-of-the-pants style writers…

Liebster Award


I have been nominated for the Leibster Award! Thanks to fellow author Vanessa Wester for the nomination. (

As required by the Liebster nominee, I’ve pasted the Liebster award in my blog post and will provide a link back to the nominator’s blog. Next, I need to list 11 random facts about me, then answer the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated me.

Once that’s done, I then proceed to nominate 11 bloggers to follow after me and come up with 11 new questions for them. I post everything on my blog with the hope of bringing new readers to it.

Ok, so now I give 11 facts about myself. Here we go:

People need competition to stretch and grow, it is part of life. If competition is fair then yes I think being competitive is a good quality.

This one is hard, but if money were no issue than I’d take a tropical island.
