Watching Thirteen Reasons Why on Netflix isn’t fun. A teenage girl, Hannah Baker has killed herself (spoiler alert), and she’s left behind a series of thirteen audio recordings, each telling the tale of another person who contributed to her decision to commit suicide.

Overall, I think that the series was a success, for what it was. It was an interesting look at a downward spiral. At times, it was a brutal, sad, or painful series to watch.

Strange Fall

26 Oct

It’s been a while since I posted anything new to the blog. Rest assured, this is not because I have forgotten that I have a blog… Though that kinda happened too.

The real reason why it’s been so quiet around here is that I have a new novel that is just about to be released and I’ve been spending a lot of time getting it all shined up and ready to go.

What is this new book, you ask? (pretend you asked)

It is called Strange Fall. It’s a neat little paranormal tale which I think you’ll enjoy reading this Halloween. Look for it FREE October 27th through October 31st and be sure to tell your friends!
