A few weeks ago, I was interviewed on the Chapters show by my friend and fellow West Virginia writer, Carter Taylor Seaton. We discussed my first novel, When the Watcher Shakes (which won the 2021 West Virginia Indie Author Project) as well as other things in the works. Carter is an excellent host, and it was a pleasure chatting with her. The interview is now available on YouTube.
Just sitting here in my library…

Super cute video of my niece reading LITTLE ONE
My three-year-old niece decided to “read” Little One to my sister, who sent me the video. She is very cute and has some funny things to say about the book. I am using this video with permission from my sister and my niece, but I am keeping their names out of YouTube and this website to protect their privacy. Watch the video below and give it some likes if you want!
Haven’t read Little One yet? My niece is cute, but I would take her words with a grain of salt. Click here for more information about the book and links to purchase.
Vote for me!
Somebody brought to my attention that I’m listed in WV Living Magazine‘s ballot for their The Best of West Virginia Awards. I wish I had seen this sooner. Only a week left to vote!
Now, I’m not going to tell you I’m the Best Author in West Virginia. But if you want to vote for me, I’m sure not going to argue with you.
Also, this is cool—I grew up in Davis (sister town to Thomas), and those two towns are ALL OVER this poll! Maybe because it really is the coolest! (Sorry Pocahontas County—Tucker County is in my blood forever it seems)
So go vote! And share this all over the social nets!
Am I doing this internet stuff right?
I guess I’ll keep working on it. In the meantime, I’ve extended the $0.99 Kindle deal on Little One for a little while longer. Get it before it goes back up in price!
