Martin Luther Article for "Femnista"

My article for Femnista's current issue is a brief look at Martin Luther's intentions when he nailed those 95 theses to the door of the Wittenburg church five hundred years ago this October.  It's titled "He Didn't Expect to Change the World," and you can read it here.

I'm Now an INSPYs Judge!

I just found that I have been accepted as a judge for the 2017 INSPY awards, for the Mystery/Thriller category! 

If you don't know what the INSPYs are, they're "The Bloggers' Award for Excellence in Faith-Driven Literature." If you want to learn more about the wards, visit the official site.  My name, picture, and bio are in this post that welcomes the 2017 judges.  I'm very much looking forward to reading the short-listed books in my category and then working with other judges to choose the winner!

Femnista Article About "Sabrina"

Femnista is focusing on "playing second fiddle" for the first two months of 2017.  You can find the links to all the articles here

I chose to write about the unexpected romance in Sabrina (both the 1954 and 1997 versions) and how it's basically a double retelling of Cinderella.  You can read my article here.  Happy Valentine's Day!

That's a wrap!

I just finished the first draft of "Cloaked," my new western reimagining of the Little Red Riding Hood story!  Feeling very, very pleased with it, over all, but now it's time to let it rest for a week or two so I can read it with fresh perspective when I'm ready to dig into revision.

Earlier today, I shared a "playlist" for this story here on my main blog, Hamlette's Soliloquy.  If you'd like to know what kind of music I've been listening to while writing these past few months, or how music is tied to my writing process, check that out.
