Lt Flint and the Landship Scorpios has a written Series!!!

Hey everyone. My character has grown ALOT since I was first on this website. And the stuff that's on my large is kinda wrong. Well... I started writing some short story about Flint. It's actually taking off quite fast. So I want to make sure it is represented here. 

You can read the series in its entirety right here: …

When I drew my Tanaka softair Single Action Army to show the security guy at the Steampunk Symposium, the Base Pin Screw and spring fell out. To explain; the Cylinder (part #11) is held to the frame by the Base Pin (part #5). The Base Pin is held in place by the Base Pin Latch which…

Up in the Aether: Convention Report

On my own this time. Leave by about 6:30.

For several years now I have been driving to Detroit for these steampunk cons and when crossing into Michigan there has been an intriguing billboard: “Beef Jerky Unlimited. We are not a gas station.” This year I did not pass the exit by and ended up buying $50 of dried meat.

They also carried an assortment of hot sauces that I decided…

Check out my style blog on Bubblews

I have started a blog on Bubblews. It may be of interest, in that I intend to share how I make costumes, such as my Victorian Morning Dresses, and other creations for little or nothing! Feel free to let me know what you think, and make suggestions for things you'd like to see there. It may even turn into a bit of a How-To blog, as well, we'll see!!!…

Traveling and writing!

I plan on taking the proof copy with me for editing and hopefully I will get some video while I am out in NC and at the Arkansas quartz mines. I've traveled a lot and lived in a few different states, and in my writing I reflect those experiences through the people I have met and the places I've seen. I've had opportunities in my life to literally see both coasts, the desert to forests, mountains to beaches and plains. I've had A lot of great trips with family and friends and can tell many,…

star Wars Day

Today is the anniversary of Star Wars. I don't give a rat's a** if you don't like it, I do, and it was an important influence on who I have become. Trekkies understand this more than any other group of people--even though Star Wars fans and Trekkies argue some time, most of them agree on the mutual importance of both on society. (Trek actually had some major influences on the way Lucas wrote Star Wars. So even though i'm not a trek fan, I give it that.)

In honor, I did a tribute video…

Character development and Pedigree

So, a friend asked me about that moment when Characters start writing themselves, and I do my best to describe the sensation and what leads up to it. I also spend some time talking about my writing background, and how I got where I am now.

New videos...character development and my pedigree!…

Chapter 23 Episode 2 Act III


SCENE I: The base of the spiral staircase, a small room about 16 feet below ground. It is barely large

enough to contain everyone. A very narrow corridor leads north. It is braced with timbers like

a mining tunnel. The only light is what makes its way down the staircase.

R. Great. Time to go single file down the dark hallway. It's cramped enough in HERE. Can I get some room

to get out a light?

Adele moves into the corridor. Sabeetha…

Steampunk World’s Fair: Convention Report

Jeff Mach’s event is huge. The largest of the steampunk conventions I’ve gone to with 4,000 attendees last year. In the lead up to this year they filled up the two main hotels quickly. Filled up an overflow hotel and then another overflow hotel.

The halls were going to be packed.


And, when we got there, a big chunk of parking lot was closed. And I am not just referring to the spaces that were closed off for the Midway tents and performance stage, this…

Bend in the Wind

I raise my glass to those who live in Tornado Alley.

I've lived in Blizzards

I've seen Hurricanes

Even an Earthquake

Nothing holds up to a Tornado

No other weather phenomena ices like a blizzard and blows like a hurricane at the same time.

I'm not discounting the other weather phenomena, but I have seen them all, and they aren't like a Tornado. Minutes, not days. Minutes, not hours, and a lot…

Steamy 30th Birthday Party

My husband threw me a bonafide steam punk party last night with our 30 closest friends. Had a cookie cake complete with a pocket watch icing photo.
