Hello friends! Miss me? No need to respond, I know you did. 😉
Because I am in a million different places on the internet (humble brag), this post is just to let you all know about some of those things that I may not have previously posted about here, mostly music related. Get excited!
I’m officially a Youtuber! (I use that term pretty loosely). Anywho, I post weekly, mostly original songs and a splattering of hot-mess cooking videos. I can guarantee you will be entertained.
If you want to hear my music without having to see my face – I can’t imagine this would be the case- visit my soundcloud!
Brash! is an online music magazine for indie artists that I’ve been writing for for about two years now, and somehow I’ve neglected to ever mention it on here. Check out the latest issue to read my artist about Maggie Rogers.
That’s all for now! Say hello in the comments 🙂
It’s been so long my dear friends! Don’t worry, I’ll spare you the excuses. Instead, just humor me and pretend to care as I give a brief life update.
Adulthood: I officially graduated from university (miracles happen). I’m a real adult these days. I pay bills and file taxes and even spent hours pouring over different healthcare plans today. I mean, I also spent a few hours watching Buzzfeed videos, but we won’t talk about that.
Location: Straight after graduation, I packed my bags, left the farm (kidding), and ventured out to the big city. Los Angeles, that is. I moved here for all the usual reasons, becoming an artist and changing the world and all that. What better time to be naive then my twenties?
Projects: So my “ticket” to Los Angeles was an internship at NBC, and a “plan” to become a screenwriter. To be honest I haven’t done that much screenwriting, but I have dedicated time to a few other artistic pursuits. I’m working on another novel, working title In Time. I started a food blog called eatsleepreheat which you all should check out. AND I got my first real guitar! I’m in love. With the guitar that is. #foreveralone. Anywho, this brings me to another major project: music. I started a Youtube channel that I intend to dedicate to it, as a means of forcing myself to practice. I’m hoping posting this will mean I’ll be too ashamed to stop posting, even when I’d rather watch Buzzfeed videos.
I hope you all check out my channel. It will consist of songs I’ve written as well as a few food related videos as a complement to eatsleepreheat. I’ll add a videos section to this blog so you can can see what I’m posting on there. I’m sure you’re just dying to see what sort of Oscar worthy gold I’ll be posting, so I’m giving you a sneak peak below. Fingers crossed to me doing a better job with the channel than I have with this blog 🙂
It’s Saturday. 5:30 in the morning. Darryn’s eyes flick open. He reaches over and shuts off his alarm in a hurry. He doesn’t want to wake his wife because she needs every minute o…

Hello friends! I can’t believe it is less than two weeks before How to Get Your Heart Broken gets released!! I am feeling ridiculously impatient. The only reason I don’t want to speed up the days is because I am currently on spring break (Ha!). Anywho, I have something to help us all get through the wait: the book trailer!
I made it myself (not to brag or anything 😉 ) so I am excited to share it with you all. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
All the love,
Hello friends! I know it’s been a while but I’m currently finishing up my last semester of college, so things have been a bit hectic! I know everyone’s been holding their breaths waiting for an update on How to Get Your Heart Broken (kidding/ not kidding) so I figured I would give the people what they want! March 21st is coming up so soon I can’t believe it!!
This weekend I got my Createspace proof, so I thought I would post a little about that and provide feedback for anyone interested in publishing with them. The book looks great, my friends have all remarked about how it looks like a “real” book (I forgive them). The cover looks AMAZING. The format all turned out as it should.
For those of you that are curious, the dimension I picked were 5.5X8.5. I went with cream paper and a matte cover. I used a few different fonts in the book and they all turned out great. The pictures on my bio page also came out clearly. I know that some people have complained about Createspace online, and I’m sure there are higher chances for mistakes when you order a lot of books, but I am very satisfied with my proof!
As someone who has always wanted to be an author, I was ecstatic the moment I was finally able to hold my book in my hands. If you are interested in publishing one of your works, I definitely recommend Createspace (I know it may seem like it, but this really isn’t an ad).
But I’ll stop talking now. Here’s a sneak peak intro How to Get Your Heart Broken:
That is all for now. But don’t worry, I will be back with more updates about HGYHB soon now that there are only a few weeks left!!! Leave me your comments and questions. And Happy Belated Valentines!
All the love,
