One Last Fest

Everything has to come to an end, doesn't it? At least that is what I think at this point in time. Living in Europe has to come to an end; high school has to come to an end; each book I write has to come to an end; and despite my mighty effort to fight it, my geeky trips to medieval festivals must come to an end. Tomorrow I am going to Freienfels, Germany where one of the largest mittelalterspektakels is held. I suppose to many, it is a bizarre hobby; to dress up and attend a festival where everyone wants to go back to a time where there were chivalrous knights and mighty assassins who were lived under the rule of a King and Queen (or just one or the other). Although the medieval ages were plagued with well, plagues, and no proper plumbing, something about being immersed an ideal medieval time sparks the imagination of some people (one of those including me). 

It's slightly odd, the importance of these things to me. Like how some love cars or going to the horse track, this is what I love to do. That is why I am forever grateful to my few friends who love me enough to join me on my last adventure to a festival tomorrow. It means the world to me, and I really do hope that I have the time of my life even if there only are a few of us. :)

The Sun That Never Sets & Recovering Old Stories

I say the sun that never sets, but I suppose it should be more like the heat that never ends. This endless death wave was not part of my current/near future plan. Don't get me wrong, the sun is gorgeous when it shines here, but when you can feel the sun and concrete burn through your sneaker into your feet, that can't possibly feel "fantastic". I thought that I would share a few things with you before bringing up my writing, so here it goes. I don't mind Arizona. It is definitely better than I thought it would be, but the summer weather is too much for me here (I decided that 100 degrees is now my limit), and I have yet to meet a single person my age. That might be due partially to the fact that we still live in a hotel while we unexpectedly renovate our house (a whole other story for another time), and also partially because I haven't put myself into any situations yet to meet any kids my age (other perhaps a clerk or two at the grocery stores). In other wo…

Another Summer in VC

As I sit on the balcony of the Fairweather Inn, built in 18- something or other, overlooking the small main street of Virginia City Montana, I can’t help but want to throw a rock through the windshield of the cardinal red Subaru across the street with its alarm going off ever forty-five seconds. The terrible thing is that the owner has to be aware that their car alarm is going off because once it starts, it last between two and thirty seconds and then is shut off, and will either start back up within two to five seconds- so where is my peace and quiet? I surely thought that I would find it here, but apparently not. With that aside, a cold and numbing breeze sweeps across the balcony and down the sloped street as a light rain begins to turn into a downpour. I have missed the fresh and renewing smell of rain in Montana though. It is odd to say, but it certainly isn’t the same elsewhere in the world- especially not in Phoenix Arizona where every time the skies open to a downpour, the onl…

Jumping off the Deep End

Well, for those of you reading on here, this news may be coming out of the deep blue, but today is officially publishing day for the new edition of The King's Daughter! Published this evening, about ten minutes ago, (so it will take a little time to actually show up online... but), my book will be available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble in print, and will be available as an e-book within a few weeks when I finish up the formatting! I finally thought it about time to stop fussing over the small things (because I knew it'll never be "done" to me if I keep trying to fix minute details). I'm excited to share this newer version with my family and friends who've always shown such great love and support towards my writing over the years! I've come a long way, but know that I still have a long way to go, and The King's Daughter is just my first stop on that long journey! Publishing this will allow me the time now to give more of my time and attention to wor…
