• Running away from home

    I did that. Ran away from home and to the Rainforest Writers Village where I got less work done than I wanted, but I did finish the fourth Diamond City Magic book (Yay!!!) and did some work on the second…

  • A Friday Riley snippet

    Because it’s Friday and because I can! From book 4 of DCM (which is yet title-less) I pulled back my wandering mind to focus on the task at hand. The difficulty in this situation was me. Null magic in particular.…
