Sunlight Photography

Last weekend I got a “Sunlight Print” kit. Over the next few weeks I’m going to try homemade photography, and hopefully have fun while trying. Plus, I’m going to have my twins do this with me, so even if we can’t figure it out we’ll make some fun memories.

Anyone have experience with cyanotypes (using the sun and special paper to create a photograph)?


Pray for Pilchuck

Just a quick update to say that my blog is still on a break while I scramble to make my deadline to Astraea Press.

On a different note, some of you may not know that I was born and raised in Marysville, Washington, and graduated from Marysville-Pilchuck High School. While I no longer live in Marysville, my parents and many close friends still do, and I visit several times a year.

Watching my friends’ timelines on Facebook that fateful day was absolutely heartbreaking, as many of them now have children at that school, and many couldn’t immediately locate their children.

Please take a moment and pray for everyone dealing with this tragic event, especially for those still fighting for their lives in the hospital.

Also, I ask that you also pray for parents who are struggling to explain the events to their younger children.


The Fussy Librarian

Tomorrow my book, Along the Way Home, will be featured on The Fussy Librarian, which is a brand new way to learn about the books you’re sure to love.

The creators of The Fussy Librarian do all the legwork for you by searching through over 40 genres to find your favorites as well as sorting books by violence, swearing, and sex levels.

In other words, it’s like having your own personal librarian pulling books from virtual shelves just for you!

I am a fan and have found a few new authors based upon their recommendations. If you’re interested, here’s more info…
