Meet My OTPs

The best books and movies are ones I think about days (or months, looking at you, Avengers: Endgame) afterward. Usually it’s noticing something new about the themes, a line of dialogue, or something as simple as a costume choice. Some of this is due to the communities I run in (nerdy Facebook groups, nerdy Goodreads … More Meet My OTPs

Nothing Is Wasted

My family has been through some things (especially in the last eighteen months or so) that I can tend to wish would never have happened. (I’m still uncomfortable talking about them anywhere, so be warned that this post is going to be a bit vague. 😉 ) The “things” keep coming back now and then … More Nothing Is Wasted

Baby in a Raincoat

Last Thursday, we hurried inside the church building, running a little late and more than a little in danger of getting wet from the rain that poured down. I love rain so much. Thunderstorms as wild and loud as a fireworks show… sheets of rain blowing sideways like unsteady toddlers… drizzles of rain too weak … More Baby in a Raincoat

A Few Lovely Things

Welcome to Kate’s Curation of Lovely Things, the part of the show where Kate comes out and curates lovely things. Or in English, she shares with you some things she’s been loving lately. 😉 My fantastic nephews were over a lot last week, and we took them to the library to bring home approximately a … More A Few Lovely Things

Plate Update: LEGO, Sherlock Holmes, and Autumn

Kiera Q & A Vlog!

Okay, so I filmed a very awkward, rambley vlog answering y’all’s questions about my novel Kiera. It was fun. And awkward. And it includes an introduction to my Funko Pops, so that’s fun. 😉 I am not a fish, in case you were wondering… Yes, there’s a part two. 😉 Thanks so much for sending … More Kiera Q & A Vlog!
