When Schizophrenia Came: A Remembrance

Schizophrenia was not your end, though the incidents leading to your diagnosis did feel like it. Schizophrenia did not remove you from existence, though you were never recognizable as the sunny, bubbly, quirky girl we used to know after that diagnosis...

The Wilderness Between Us, Pt. 2

It wasn’t going to be easy. Since she was practically immobile and reliant on moving at the pace of a pack of turtles, this was going to take some serious work. Not to mention every time she made a movement in the blasted sleeping bag or tent, it made a terrible rustling sound that would wake the dead.

Another New Favorite: My Ahmad Strawberry Sensation Tea Review

I stumbled onto the Ahmad brand for August’s tea review. And now I’m hooked. As I write this review, I’m literally on the last of the twenty bags from the box. Yeah. I’m going to have to order another box or twelve.

How Never Doubting Christian Dogma Nearly Ruined My Life and Why I’m Grateful to Have Doubts

When your dogma is stronger than your faith, you need a deconstruction of faith like never before. I didn't think I needed that. Turns out, I was wrong.

A Brush with Love book review

Romance Novel Review: A Brush with Love

A Brush With Love is one of those romance novels that restores my faith in the genre. Not only is the craft of writing well-executed on these charming pages, but the author digs deeply into a lot of challenging emotional moments and deals very beautifully with a main character who deals regularly with anxiety – deep anxiety.

Fiction - The Bond cover art

Book Review: The Bond

Worlds and life are not always what they appear to be. Dinitra 584-KxA finds that out in a big way. Is anything as it seems? What is the truth? Huge questions, and an amazing story to back them up.

Fiction awaits: a woman hiking through the woods

Fiction Friday: The Wilderness Between Us – Pt. 1

It hadn’t been one of her better decisions. In fact, when she looked back over her life, contemplating all of the decision-making she had done thus far in her twenty-nine years, this one teetered on insanity. Or, perhaps that was doing it a disservice. Completely irrational, utterly insane, and most likely going to leave her with scars seemed to suit it better.

My Favorite Things: Hot Tea on an Airplane

I don’t understand it. I’m a tea snob. Lipton is unacceptable. It’s not tea – at all. And yet when I fly anywhere, there’s this thing in me that relishes a hot tea. Even Lipton.
