Whether pigs have wings

Let's see...

First off, I'm 25 now. Wild, right? People keep asking me if it's bugging me yet, being a "quarter century old," but the truth is, I am where I want to be. I am in love, and engaged, to a wonderful woman. I am in graduate school, working on the degree I need for the career I want. And about that career? I was just offered a job in the exact field I want to go in to.

Yes, I have a job! This is part of the reason I have been so scarce the last week, since I spent a few hours interviewing there, in addition to grading papers for my practicum, which is wrapping up soon; celebrating two birthdays, including my own and my fiancee's; and attending a night class on Wednesday. On Wednesday alone, I realized that I spent more than four hours just driving from place to place.

The job is relatively local, and involves working with students with emotional and behavioral difficulties, probably at the middle school level. I am very excited, and will be frantically planning curriculum the next few weeks, while grading the rest of my 56 papers, 18 tests, and a flashcard project, and working to get through the copyedited Token of Darkness.


  1. Hey congrats on getting the job you wanted!

  2. They should make a movie for the Kiesha'ra series!!! That would be amazing!!! I love those books!!! I've read each of them about 5 times. Are you going to write a sixth one?
    Please e-mail me: ShyVelvet@yahoo.com

  3. Im love your writing, it has inspired me to do alot of my own! You should write a book about what happens to Sarah after she becomes a vampire in Shattered Mirror. I know, myself, and all the friends that i have gotten addicted to your books would read them! And i agree with one of the other comments, a movie about the Kiesha'ra series would be cool. Oly if they follow the books, otherwise, i would get mad.

  4. Congratulations on the job and on the engagement! Seems like a pretty good place to be for the quarter-century mark, definitely. :)

  5. I'm not Amy, but I can answer a few of the questions on here.

    @ShyVelvet: Wyvernhail is the final Kiesha'ra novel. There will not be any more.

    @Elly: She's currently-ish working on All Just Glass, a sequel to Shattered Mirror. I believe it's next in line to be published after Token of Darkness.

    @Amy: Since you are so scarce, I'll offer my congrats here on the job and everything else. That's so exciting! :)

  6. I'm just wondering, do you have any idea when this site is going to start working again?
