Sneak Peek of the First Angel Fyre Book!


Hope you like this tantalizing taste of my latest work, the first in a paranormal romance series!

Hover Parenting vs Free Range Parenting


I recently read the story about the Meitivs from Maryland. You know the one: the parents allowed their 10 and 6 year old children to play and walk to and from a park close to their home ( I think it was a mile or so). Someone called the cops and they came and took the […]

Bodily Function I Wish I Could Get Rid Of


I bet you are all thinking I’m going to say passing gas, but that’s not it. Although it would be great to be able to eat broccoli and not bloat to the size of a dirigible. Not that there’s anyone around except the cats to hear when things get a little…*ahem* tooty… Anyway, the bodily […]

AnomalyCon 2015


This was my first year at AnomalyCon and I must say it was bloody spectacular! I was invited to participate in several author panels, which I’d never done before. Hanging with such supremely awesome literary talent was a little intimidating, but after a single couple numerous shots of whiskey, I was all good ;) I often […]

Relocating a Teenager


Packing up and moving a family is never an easy decision to make, whether it’s across the country or just across the state. It’s something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. There’s more to it than dealing with boxes and bubble wrap. Pulling kids out of school and forcing them to start over can be a […]

Famous Writers’ Insults


Originally posted on Nicholas C. Rossis:
I often say that my favorite thing about my writing journey is how helpful everyone’s been. I’ve met some wonderful people, eager to support and encourage others. That’s not always been the case, though. Indeed, when authors get mean, the results can be spectacular, as the infographic below by Amy…

Using Ultrasound to Combat Alzheimer’s


One of the greatest things about being a college professor is seeing the interest of the students translate into them coming to me with new research being done in a particular field. I try my best to keep up with the literature, but it can be difficult sometimes with a busy schedule. And when the […]

Originally posted on White's Wyrd World:
Out of the Shadows: A Dark Fantasy Flash Anthology by Regine Allison Claire My rating: 5 of 5 stars I loved how the stories all had their own take on a similar theme, with one in particular standing out in my mind– “An Act of Faith”. In such…

Life on Titan?


Does life exist on other worlds? I don’t know about you, but the idea of life on other celestial bodies has always fascinated me. I mean, the universe is friggin massive and we can’t be the only things out here. In a quote from one of my favorite movies: “If it is just us, it’s […]

Spock-Leonard-Nimoy

Why Do Celebrity Deaths Affect Us So Much?


Leonard Nimoy passed away this morning from complications arising from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The beloved actor was also proficient at photography and poetry, but it’s his role as the stoic Vulcan, Mr. Spock, that launched him into the hearts of everyone in the galaxy. As I drove home from the university I was […]

Bionic Eye Gives Man Back His Sight


Technology is amazing! Actually, science technology is awesomesauce amazing, but I’m a little biased ;) Imagine losing your sight to a slow, debilitating degenerative disease. Now imagine being able to see your loved ones after decades of darkness. It might not be perfect, but to someone who can’t see anything, even the little sight from […]
