Seriously, 2015 what you're doing to me isn't good enough? You got to go after our poor border collie and let him get pancreatitis. Well, jokes on you. We caught it in time, he's better and we know how to manage it. So, thppt!Anyway, in light of the past months, I'm being self-indulgent with my … Continue reading Taking a Dark Turn
Seeing that 2015 has taken the turn that it has (and I've decided a few more chapters might be in order), I'm planning on loading a decent chunk of The Shadow Prince onto wattpad. The first three chapters are already up, so ... enjoy.

It was never sunshine … Continue reading Growing darker and darker
