Thank You, Wow

Last weekend, I spent my third year with Generation Rising at the AFHE homeschool convention. There were a ton of amazing, hilarious, goofy, and downright does-my-brain-even-exist-now-I’m-so-tired conversations. We met with friends, new customers, and fans. Some of my favorite moments were when readers stopped by to tell us how much our books have impacted them. … More Thank You, Wow

Plate Update: Chocolate, Thunderbirds, and New Release

If you’re new here (HI!!!!!), I should probably explain what in the world this recurring series is. 😉 Three years ago (today), I posted about how full my “plate” was, complete with a hilariously bad picture of me with a literal plate. Since then, I’ve been using the title “Plate Update” for a monthly check-in … More Plate Update: Chocolate, Thunderbirds, and New Release
