A Brief Introduction To The Gentle Art Of Paleopaccatumology

Release day of Sins of the Past – here’s Misha!


Sins Of The PastToday the collection Sins Of The Past went live on Amazon. (Clicky on the piccy to buy your own copy.)

I want to give my thanks to Chasity Nicole and Debbie Manber Kupfer for selecting my story “We Pass From View” to be included.

This is the second time that I have been published in a short story collection, so I now have a “Collections In Which My Work Appears” section on my Buy My Bookspage.

I really liked the theme of this collection, which is horror stories set in the past.  (Mine cheats a little bit–it’s set in the present day, but it’s an interview with someone who is remembering events from the 1960’s).

As with Fauxpocalypse, this collection was conceived on the internet and put together via e-mail.  I did get to meet one of the other contributors in person Wednesday night, and I’ve known Debbie for a…

Read All the Things – it’s not WHAT we read, it’s HOW we read that matters.

Very well stated article by Kelly Barnhill. It saddens me a lot when adults dismiss YA literature out of hand. So much good stuff out there.

Kelly Barnhill

Dorothea Lange - Girls of Lincoln Bench School study their reading lesson. Near Ontario, Malheur County, Oregon, 1939

There have been over the last few months – and I’m sure you’ve seen them – articles circulating. Perhaps you read one in The New Yorker. Perhaps you saw an enraged discussion on Twitter. Perhaps you saw a delightful evisceration or a snarky confrontation on Tumblr. In any case, the format has been the same – some stuffy grownup laments in a poorly-thought-out article about the State of Reading. Adults are reading books for children! Oh, Woe!Children are reading books that they actually enjoy! Oh, Fie!People are reading books that I do not enjoy and do not match this ascot! Gracious, gracious me! The world, it would seem, is on its way to an unpleasant destination after being tucked into this cozy handbasket.

And the concern has been palpable. “If,” one pundit posed, “American adults only read five novels a year, shouldn’t those books be at their…

Last night I went to an event at The Book House, a local bookstore not far from my home.

I read my short story “We Pass From View” which is going to be in the soon-to-be-released collection Sins Of The Past. 

It was fun, and I got to meet a few other local authors.

I do wish I could have stayed later, but I have to get up very early on weekdays for my day job, so I only got to hang out for about an hour.

Argentum – Release Day!


Argentum is the thread that binds all magic. When Merlin fashioned the first shapeshifter charms, he selected silver for his work. The silver wand, the silver scrying bowl, the silver charms of the shapeshifters.

All contain the essence of Argentum.

The death of Alistair has brought a measure of peace and calm to those at P.A.W.S., but his silver charm remains in Miri’s possession and it seems to almost have a life of its own.

Nightmares and questions torment Miri until the charm mysteriously disappears and Jessamyn seeks help from Quentin,. He claims to have repented his past association with Alistair, but can he be trusted?

And what of Jenna, a young girl once held captive by Alistair who carries a terrible secret—a secret that could determine the future of P.A.W.S.

The P.A.W.S. saga continues with Argentum – Pick up your copy today.

On Kindle or signed paperback directly from Rocking Horse Publishing.

Remember to add Argentum to your TBR list on Goodreads.

And if you haven’t already pick up a copy of the first part of the the P.A.W.S. saga.
