Welcome to S.N.Arly on the Web

If you’re new to my site, welcome! I hope you find something of interest here. If you’re a return visitor, welcome back!

I’m a long-time reader and writer of speculative fiction, the umbrella term that includes fantasy, science fiction and horror. The strongest influences in my formative years were Anne McCaffrey and Stephen King. I write both young adult and adult flavored fiction.

I enjoy blogging about the creative process, writing life, and independent publishing. You can find novel excerpts, short stories, writing exercises, essays on writing topics, and resources for writers in the left sidebar navigation. All my posts use visible tags to help you find more similar content.

I’m pretty friendly, so feel free to comment on posts or pop over to my contact form if you have questions.


I’ve been meaning to set up my website for months.  I had one in the distant past (when I had to actually learn HTML), but wasn’t good at updating it, so it did more harm than good.  Times have changed, and I’ve been blogging over on Tumblr for a few years, so it was clearly time to start again.

I try to keep things organized, so as I port things over from my other blog there will be a clear structure, and heavy use of tags and categories.

I’m friendly, so please feel free to contact me if you have a question!
