Why Do Females Dominate the Dystopian World?

Why Do Females Dominate the Dystopian World?

Guest Blogger: Nadine Brandes   Katniss Everdeen. Tris Prior. Cassia Reyes. Linh Cinder. Recognize any of these names? It’s okay, names were never my strong suit either, but the book titles might help you: The Hunger Games, Divergent, Matched, Cinder. These books have several things in common. First, they’re all YA dystopian novels. Second, they […]

Perspective on Ebola

Perspective on Ebola

My son asked me this morning, “Has Ebola gotten to Arizona yet?” followed by “What if I die from Ebola?” Statistically, it’s not particularly likely, but it is very hard not to worry when it’s all over the news. You can’t turn on the radio without hearing about it. Spreading across Europe, one patient in […]

Alphabet Blogging: F is for…

Fanfiction. I admit I had no idea what fanfiction even was until I was in my early 20s and discovered Doctor Who. Since then, I’ve hovered on the fringes of fanfic, occasionally looking at it, but never reading it much or even considering writing it. I did once get an idea for a Doctor Who […]

Hasn’t the church been warning people for two thousand years? We have. The problem is, few people are listening. And […]

Camping Excursion

Camping Excursion

Last weekend I took my family camping. There were several other families from my kids’ school who were all going together, so at the last minute, we tagged along. My husband is more of an indoor person, so doing something like this is pretty much all on me to get what we need and make […]

Alphabet Blogging: E is for…

Empty. ‘Cause that’s how my brain has felt about blogging for the last couple of weeks. I thought the alphabet blogging would help spark ideas…buuuut, not so much. I blame it on how crazy my life has been lately. Mid-September, my brother-in-law got married down in Missouri, so we spent a week down there. Afterward, […]
