The barriers or conflicts in the story have… Continue reading The Barrier or Conflict in VuDu Legends
I Need a Hero! Don’t we all! That wonderful guy that’s up to the task of making everyone fall in love with him. He’s a part of the story along with the heroine. That means he’s rounded and grows into a fully developed character along with her (or possibly him).

All the poking and prodding from my daughter, husband, extended family, and friends helped with that. The goal… Continue reading Summoned Mate – The Setup
Momocon had a robust lineup of panels this year and I wanted Writing for Comics to stand out from the crowd. Often we write a comic script and find that it may be a little hard to understand by our artists. So, we dive deep into the realm of script writing and come up with… Continue reading Writing for Comics Momocon 2019!

VuDu Legends Volume 1 has a completed print run! It was a real task cleaning everything up, but super fun all the same. Now that I have an example to play with, I think it’s a good time to break down the elements of romance covered in this premier comic. So, let’s get into the… Continue reading Society Defined in VuDu Legends
