Advice here is for the purposes of fiction writing ONLY and is at best an educated guess. With a solid understanding of the human body and a bit of research, I can probably help you make a guess that won't turn off readers. Do not attempt to enact this advice on real human beings, pets, plants, or imaginary friends.

I write dark fantasy. I use my nursing knowledge to help out fellow writers with medical, infant, child, and women's health issues. I am blunt and occasionally foul-mouthed. If you knew me in person, you'd never guess any of that stuff.

Unfortunate News

Hello everybody out there who reads this blog. As you can see, I've been very hit or miss with posting lately. I've got a boat load of good excuses, most of which revolve around my health or my husband's, but none of them are going to post for me. Unfortunately, I just don't have time right now to deal with the sort of highly-researched general posts that this blog was created to share.

So after a year and a half of trying to keep it up, I'm afraid I'll be calling it quits for a while.

Hopefully, this is a temporary closure, and I'll leave the site up so that the older articles can still be accessed. Feel free to continue to shoot me emails with writing questions, as most of those I can answer informally on a fairly quick basis. I'd be more than happy to continue to share my expertise with all of you as my time and health permit. Again, you can reach me at muse @ (take out the spaces).

Keeping this blog and answering general questions that hit my email have been a lot of fun for me. Some of the questions led me to consider things I had never studied and others kept my adult nursing knowledge fresh. Unfortunately, life sometimes intervenes in the best of plans. Good luck to you all in writing and for the future.
