Recommended Resources

Please note that this is in no way exhaustive. This is a start, and I’ll definitely point you back in this direction when I add new things as I find them… but, at some point, I just had to stop and post this, you know?

Book links lead you to GoodReads, unless otherwise noted.

Some of My Favourite Storytelling

  • The Dark Tower series by Stephen King (my favourite book/series of all time; it’s got a little something for everyone; link goes to Wikipedia page)
  • The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins (my second favourite series of all time; lots of questions about lots of relevant topics, plus, a really good story)
  • Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (such a lovely, fantastical story of wonder)
  • Duma Key by Stephen King (an artist learns about both the healing and destructive power of art)
  • Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling (fantastic story about growing up, growing strong, and living with love)
    A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (classic storyteller; you can definitely tell he was paid by the word, but as a prior NaNoWriMo participant, I can appreciate it)
  • Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Sofran Foer (a heartbreaking, beautiful story)
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman (an American journey toward soulfulness)


  • The Open Heart Project is an online meditation learning/practicing resource. Providing dharma talks, meditation videos, and an instructor with heart and openness, the Open Heart Project is a fantastic resource.
  • Golden Spiral Bookkeeping is my financial guru. Her passion for financials, along with clear explanations of what all those numbers in the spreadsheet mean, helps me understand the financial part of my business.
  • Moo Cards is the site I use for my business cards. They are a fantastic company to work with and I am thrilled with my cards.
  • The Visible and Real feather pen image was created by graphic designer Emily K. Hagen, with whom I worked back in 2009 and for whom I cannot find current information.
