Who Are The Voices of Jaydür?
I created the Voices of Jaydür with my best friend when we were in middle school. Resemblance to Naoni, Voice of Folc. (artist unknown) It was under a different name back then, which some of my readers know about. The ones that knew me since Nahtaia’s start. But that’s not...

Currently $0.99 on Kindle! Nahtaia: A Jaydürian Adventure received 3.7 million hits since I first posted on Wattpad back in 2010. This story is the foundation that I built my fanbase from.

Dear JK Rowling
My daughter, Melzor (her “art name,” mind you) , is eleven, and a straight A student. She’s also the one who’s always hanging out with the new kid, or the kid that’s looked at as “weird” if they have a disability or anything that makes them different from the other...

These Eyes Can’t Read Your eBook – And I’m Sorry!
When I turn down eBooks (even free ones), don’t think it’s because I don’t want to read your book(s)! Back in 2011, I was hospitalized for 6 days with meningitis. I wasn’t supposed to survive, let along be able to see again. The damage to my eyes from optic nerve...

Worthy of the Honor
I’m considered an indie writer now. This is not the route I intended to go, not that it’s a bad one. It’s really not! In fact, according to many, I’m doing what will make me more money in the end. Awesome. That’s cool! Still, it’s not the route I have...

When I die, I hope I have time to point at a complete stranger & whisper, “You did this.”
I want my life to be interesting. If not for me, then for the people around me. Maybe that’s some unconscious reason behind my writing. I want to leave a mark somewhere in someone’s life that will get them either super excited, super curious, or just wondering “what the heck...

NEWSLETTER: The sinking of the Titanic was a miracle to the lobsters in the ship’s kitchen.
Life comes down to perspective. To one person, making $40k a year is a reason to whine and complain, but to another, it would be survival. To one person, makeup needs to be washed off at night because it’ll smear. To another, yesterday’s eyeliner can be today’s smokey-eye. To one...

I’m really good at stuff until people watch me do that stuff.
I’m mentally preparing myself to start doing school visits as an author. The notion isn’t exactly a frightening one, but it is new. I haven’t done any form of public speaking for some years. But, these are kids, and I can level with kids…that’s kind of why I write kid-friendly...
