and confirming friends. it may
be that i have no photograph.
yet will add a photograph.

While Ella was editing Lucas Story, I began prewriting the third book in my Trihune Series. I was in the midst of detailing Sarid’s character with my handy, dandy character sheets (see post here) when inspiration hit.
For months, in the back of my mind, questions had prowled regarding a new character’s power. I had no idea what his power would be, just that it had to be strong and undetectable.
Suddenly it hit. I figured it…Continue

I am extrememly upset right now. I mean, come on. I don't even know how I am friends with some of you. (not you, my 3D friends) You don't read. That is a deal breaker in my book. Hell, I forced my husband to read.
