Author Spotlight: Ingrid St. John

Since her childhood, Ingrid has been in love with thriller, mysteries, and horror. She grew from reading Nancy Drew and Francine Pascal to reading Brandon Massey, Michael Romkey, and Tananarive Due. It was after watching A Nightmare on Elm Street that inspired her into…

Finals 12/12/18

I write this as I sit here waiting for my last final exam. I survived. Successfully I should say. This semester has been a whirlwind, going to events/juggling this whole author thing along with studying and working all the time. I’m not beat because…

One Year

Yesterday I celebrated a big milestone in my career as an author – one year of being published. It’s hard to grasp that it’s been that long. Yes, one year and soon to be three books later. I look back and think what a…

Something New

Today is Halloween and tomorrow National Novel Writing Month begins. One week ago, I think I would have jumped a fence if someone brought up both NaNo and Halloween in a conversation. I was having those secondary thoughts, you know the severe panic that…

Early Morning

My mind is oddly clear, though the slight pounding in my head is an irritant. I’m loving this colder weather but not the headaches that come with it. This is the first time all week I’ve been able to peel my eyes away from…

Opportunities

  Today I got edits back for novel #2 meaning one more round and boom it’s out for the world to see. Hard to believe novel #1 made its professional entrance in November. This means I am on the cusp of completing a new…

Monday 2-26-18

Car stuck in a field, check. Crippling deadlines, check. No sanity left, ahem check. It’s Monday! I’m the crazy person that likes Monday. What’s on the agenda is novel editing. Yes another novel is coming! Aha I am preparing to send to my publisher…

Media Burst

There has begun a media upheaval. It is not entirely unusual for this time of year. I’ve seen post after post about people claiming they’re leaving social media. Internally I roll my eyes and give them a time frame of how long they will…

Time is a demon. Maybe that is an illusion. An illusion we overlook because we spend our lives filled with emptiness. Waiting. Waiting, for the end we all know is coming. All of time we partake in trying to fill this void. Stuffing it…
