Meditating …

I feel a bit adrift. Baneful! is finally out … the hard part remains: marketing. That will continue over the next rest-of-my-life, along with my other books. I can’t do that every waking hour, though, without turning into what I...

Summer’s Here!

Yes, I know. Summer doesn’t officially start until Friday morning. So sue me. The herbs aren’t waiting a week. I spent a long, lovely weekend in the garden. It’s true what they say: gardening is great therapy. Just in case you...

Baneful! Release Day!

OMG. I am so excited … and relieved. Baneful! 95 of the World’s Worst Herbs is finally out!   It’s currently available in paperback through Amazon US and Amazon UK. In the next couple of weeks, it should be available to...

Release Day!

:takes big breath: My first fiction book, Stressed! Ogre’s Assistant Book One is out!   If you’re a fan of urban/contemporary fantasy, you may like it. If you’re a secretary or administrative assistant, it’ll make you...

Rain, Rain Go Away
