Welcome to S.N.Arly on the Web

If you’re new to my page, welcome! I hope you find something of interest here. If you’re a return visitor, welcome back, I recently overhauled this site to make it more accessible and easier to navigate (including visible tags to help you find more similar content).

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 also enjoy writing about the creative process, writing life, and independent publishing. You can find novel excerpts, complete short stories and writing exercises, and essays on writing topics and resources in the navigation.


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!
