There are two main topics around here, writing and mental health. There is no wrong door, so feel free to explore. Complex PTSD and writing to recovery; my life line is a trail of ink accross the page.
A new post up at the Complex PTSD Foundation

Definition of C-PTSD
Honestly, I can’t remember if these are my words or not. Please tell me if they are yours.

That is the clinical definition of Complex-PTSD. Other resources will explain C-PTSD as a form of PTSD that has other overlying factors. The two can be easily confused if you don’t start with the definition. The definition above holds some key phrases. Continue
On Amazon Vella – The Colonial
Well, Amazon has started a service to allow serialization of stories. So, of course, I had to jump in.

As a part of “The Royal American Rifles”, this colonial will find himself torn between worlds as he fights alongside the English army to defeat Napoleon, win the respect of his comrades, and find his own place.
Come support your writer friend. After all I’m making less than .0005 cents per 100 words. Seriously, Amazon? Geez.
The best support is a review. I’ll put the link here.
I am finally bending to heads wiser than my own and developing this page as my presence as an author on the internet…
along with how many other millions of people.
Congratulations on finding me.
The Thinking Read is my blog for my non-mental health topics.
Essays, Stories, 100 words, and more are available from the Writing Index.
On the mental health side of things, some of you may know me by my writing on Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) at ThinkingTooLoud.org.
I have no plans to quit blogging over there. But, like almost everything in my life, it’s a wait-and-see.
Intentions, road to Hell, and all that.
My Book — Unhomed
Seeing as how I already mentioned it. I wrote a book.
Then I wrote another one.
Another one followed that. So now I had three.
Oops, make that four.
I’m deep in the querying trenches. Here’s to finding a publisher or agent who can fall in love with a book with a neurotypical MC, an Eastern European-like setting, intrigue, betrayal, and, of course, a few dragons.
