In my list of announcements earlier this week, I mentioned I’ll be playing in an Extra Life Ravenloft game to help me raise money for sick kids.
I now have an awesome donations page set up! For as little as $10 you can affect my character. Huzzah! All donations will be fulfilled on Saturday, October 23rd during our fun game.
You do not have to be in attendance to participate; you can watch virtually or donate ahead of time.

On Saturday, March 13th, from 1:00-3:00 PM Pacific Time I’ll be conducting a super fun workshop. In my Tarot for Writers workshop, I’ll show you how to use tarot in your storytelling. I’ll cover mini-games, inspirational prompts, building characters, and scenarios, to help you brainstorm everything from character relationships to plot twists.
In addition to a lecture and slides/handouts, you’ll also perform short creative exercises–so get ready to be inspired! A tarot deck of your choosing is recommended but not required for this class. Don’t forget: scholarships are available, too!
