Wedding: Summer Solstice at Sun Mountain Lodge

Honeymoon: Mykonos, Santorini, Athens, Paris

When I get back I'm going to be super excited to share book news with you! In the meantime, wish me bon voyage!

Video Games - E3 2015

Want to see what I do for my day job? Check out the Halo 5 preview that was shown at E3! I had a great time working on the opening and ending cinematics for this:

AND you must check this out! Conan o'Brien plays one of the multiplayer maps I worked on. It's hilarious:

There were so many great games shown during E3. I'm just so amazed at how far CG has come and am so excited for our future full of beautiful CG. I've got my eyes on Cuphead (I love the 30s art) and this FF7 remake. The Last Guardian looks gorgeous. How exciting to be in this time! Our tools for telling a story visually are becoming so much more powerful. I hope to use these tools to tell my own original story one day. What games are you looking forward to?

Hello, everyone! I've been hard at work on SWORD. Good news:

  -SWORD was sent for line edit mid-May and I got the edits back this week! Flap copy is now being developed.  

  -The cover art for SWORD is finished and will be scheduled for a reveal this summer. 

Other news:

  -I have a WIP picture book.

  -I started a new novel, 12k words in.

  -I am getting married in 2 weeks!

2 years ago, Joey proposed in the Cascades and I said YES!

June is the month of Juno--goddess of marriage. I will be a June bride!

Wedding is on the solstice, which is when the honeymoon began in the olden days.

I won't be online as much between 6/18 - 7/7 due to wedding and honeymoon... but I promise that I'll be back to regular schedule after and you'll see plenty of SWORD updates!

Trip - Arizona

I went to Arizona for a few days for some sunshine reading time! I got a neat massage with turquoise stones and sage smoke. I forgot how nice it was to almost finish reading a whole book in one day. There's nothing like reading as much as you want while lounging around. I need more reading time in my life! What kind of books do you like to reading during vacation? 

Stay tuned for news week post tomorrow where I let you know everything that's going on so far!
