April Fool’s Day, Tarot, and Quantum Physics

That’s right, this blog post is going to compare a Tarot card to a physics lesson. I promise, it’ll be simple and easy to understand because, contrary to popular belief, I am not a particle physicist. A photon is the smallest particle of light we know about.

Spring!

It’s here, it’s here! The Vernal Equinox was yesterday. Today is the first full day of spring. Daytime and nighttime are equal, and from now on every single day will be a little bit longer, and every night will be a little bit shorter, until the longest day of them all, the Summer Solstice. To many […]

Imbolc! Break’s Over!

Imbolc (2/2)is the Celtic holiday that celebrates the creative fire. And I feel it. This time of year I’m on fire, writing like a madwoman, feeding from a bottomless well of creativity.

Power-up Appreciation

My newest novel goes on sale today, and I’ve shifted from four months of writing, rewriting, polishing and proofing, to thoughts of selling. Force of habit. I’d been planning to hold off releasing it until Tuesday September 4th, because everybody knows a Tuesday release has the best chance of hitting a big list. And because […]

Ostara

It’s Spring! I swear it is. Even here in the Northeastern US where we’ve had 4 major snowstorms in the past 3 weeks of March. (Full disclosure: The most recent one missed me.) But the energy of spring isn’t just about the weather systems. It’s about the energy inside us. See the seasons are a […]
