New? Start Here.

If you’re new to me and my writing, here’s a handy-dandy primer on where to start.

While I’d love to point you at a mountain of books I’ve written and say, “Start here. This is the first step in a series of grand adventures that will keep your backside utterly glued to the chair – probably even to the point where it’s unsafe,” I don’t yet have a pile of books to give you.

I’m still working on them. And that’s ok. Part of this website will chronicle my own adventures as a writer – of both books and niche websites.

So start here – and see what’s available (and piques your interest) in my online library. It’s still small, but it’ll grow over time.

I’ve been a writer since I was 11, and I’ve been writing articles for websites for almost a decade. While my first hundred thousand words took seemingly forever to write, they came faster and faster as my skill improved. And that’s exactly what will happen here, too, with my stories. So stay tuned – it’s going to be a wild ride.

Choose Your Own Reading Adventure: Fiction

The Online Library is a catalog of all of the stories I’ve published on this site. Or, if you want the Online Library Introduction with the very first State of the Starrs then that’s your link (yup: I totally and blatantly ripped off the State of the Sanderson because it was a good idea, thank you very much).

Here are some of my most popular short stories:

  • Oriana’s Stars
  • Yeah, I know it’s a lame list so far. It’s a work in progress. And Oriana’s Stars is my oldest’s favorite story, so I’m working on that universe.

Non-Fiction Writing

This website originally started as a blog – and I blogged here about all of the things. All of that old content has been republished on other sites (after getting a major overhaul) or deleted.

So if you’re wanting to find some of the non-fiction content that I’ve written and published, let me get you some links in an homage to all the “choose your own adventure” books I read as a kid.

  • Writing Reports – I publish regular reports on my niche websites and on my writing endeavors. They cover the business side of things, but having that peek behind the curtains on other websites and podcasts is part of what inspired me to realize that I can be a writer – even if I’m not a NYT best-selling author yet. You can see the writing reports listed in reverse chronologically (most recent first) at this link: Writing Reports.
  • Homesteading, Preparedness, and Gardening – All of my best tips, tricks, tutorials, and hacks that will help inspire you to get your home, zombie prep, and garden into tip-top shape – just the way you want it – whether you’re a DIY pro or a beginner. Read more at BackyardHomesteadHQ.com.
  • Sleep Training, Babies, and Parenting – This website contains evidence-based data and research to help parents be better people and to sleep train their children – and still have the “fun” anecdotes from when I was sleep-deprived and trying to get the not-sleeping children to sleep. Read more at SleepTrainingKids.com.

This page will be regularly updated as stories are added and new favorites are upvoted. Even so, this is where I’m at right now. I hope you enjoy your time on my site.

Oh, and before you go, please be sure to subscribe to my email newsletter. That’s where the real fun is.
