And it seems I'm … [Read more...] about Spending the Holidays with Characters you Love | Author Chat with Thianna Durston
For today's Season of Cheer post, I've gone digging in my WiP stack, and I've pulled out some urban fantasy. The Adepts series is set in (mostly) present-day England, where groundwater, contaminated by mining, has led a number of people to develop rather interesting talents. One of those special … [Read more...] about Season of Cheer, Day 5: Brighton Beach | An Adepts Sneak Peek
When it's cold out and rain is lashing the windows, there are few things more comforting than the smells of something baking. Especially when that something contains my favourite spice: cinnamon.
