Books into Video Games

It’s no secret that great books get turned into movies and these days it’s all about YA. But what about books being made into video games? If you think about video games that are based off books (Harry Potter, LOTR) they all came out after the movies. Out of all the games I’ve played there’s […]

RIP CP

I wasn’t sure if I was going to post anything, but one of things about being a  writer is stating the truth. All the ugly and all of the good whether it be in our characters or in life.  So here’s me, being real. I found out about two weeks ago that my BFF growing […]

Home Stretch

I have four weeks left until my due date and I am not a happy camper. Yes, I am excited about my little girl, but man is she doing a number on me. I’m pretty convinced that there’s no more room in my belly. On the bright side, I’ve sent out a new batch of […]

Borderlands FTW

I really don’t understand why I haven’t played this game sooner. It’s friggin awesome. For those non-gamers or gamers who somehow never heard of Borderlands, Borderlands is a first person shooter set in a post apocalyptic type world–kind of like Fallout but cooler. There’s guns, guns and more guns. Even though I love all the […]
