For those of you who read my last post about the tragedy that struck my ranch on May 18th, I’m writing this update. That last post was so dark and sad, and I didn’t want you to think I was still in that place three days later. My days are still filled with tears, but […]
Death comes to the Casey ranch
I have some very sad news to share. I’m crying as I write this… My beautiful mare who gave birth to a very handsome little colt yesterday at 4am had to be euthanized. It was pretty clear she was in distress within the first hours after the foal was born, but the vet wanted to […]
Excuses, excuses, excuses!

What Does an Author Assistant Do, Exactly?
We had such a great response to my assistant Noelle’s last post, I’ve asked her to write again. Noelle has offered to give readers another behind-the-scenes look at what goes on at Elle Casey HQ. I’ve turned over a lot of the day-to-day operations to her so I can focus even more on my writing […]
Scrivener : A helpful tool for authors

Today is Thanksgiving, and even though I’m not living in the United States anymore, I still celebrate with a turkey and all the trimmings. Yay, leftovers! It’s so easy in a busy life to forget to stop or at least slow down and think about all the things you’re grateful for. Time goes by so […]
How to Overcome Writer’s Block
I want to talk about writer’s block today because I received a newsletter in my email inbox the other day… I can’t remember if it was from Goodreads or Kobo maybe … anyway, it included a piece of advice from some author whose name I didn’t recognize, who I assume is an author of note […]

Life can change in an instant…
Maybe you don’t know this about me, but I’m mad into horses. I started riding just two years ago at the ripe old age of 44, and I can’t see anything but manes, tails and saddles anymore. Every free moment I have is pretty much spent at the barn with my half-blood arab/draft horse, Organdy. […]
