about me art writing

That went well…

Sabiscuit’s Catalog is now Saint Joan, a creative studio project. It is evolving.

Hello everyone, I went and did another thing. Sabiscuit’s Catalog is now Saint Joan, a creative studio which will be work and/or play. It is evolving. Welcome, in every language.

But, to be clear, I have done several things. One was to set my blog to private after WordPress said they were going to publish posts from other bloggers here. It was going to be a matter of time before some antisocial idiot ended up next to my art work.

Signed, sealed, delivered ….

During the break, I was writing a lot of scenes for my upcoming creative project. While doing some research on a character, I went so far down the digital rabbit hole, that when I shook myself awake, it was a brand new year.

Don’t get me started on what has happened already. I left you alone for three months and you bring dogecoin back? Not to mention, amid the mayhem on Wall Street, Demi Moore managed to break the Internet. This tells you that star power is real. Because, let’s be honest, how many of you wear $600 Fendi tights?

Miraculously, after eight frustrating months, WordPress has finally allowed me to upgrade to my own domain. I am grateful for the buffer of time. This domain,, is named for the Congregation of St. Joan, an orthodox religion I created for my first novel, The Quarter Percent. It was referenced only once in the final chapter. However, a breakaway sect called St. Joan’s Parish is featured in the next novel. Special thanks go to Draculauren for interviewing me about both projects last year. It was a fun experience.

After brainstorming ideas, I thought the church needed a governing body that behaved like it was running a global sportswear brand. When I thought of the outrage this concept would induce, I decided to bring the Blessed Lady into this timeline.

How are you all doing? Please let me know.


Life is short, so let’s be decent.

Thank you for commenting. WordPress announced that my blog was ‘chosen’ to feature native sponsored posts. Basically a blogger would pay to have their posts advertised on my blog. And if a blog doesn’t pay for premium upgrade, it will be hosting other blog content. Obviously, the only quality standard is $$$. Therefore, I chose not to participate.

Thank you so much for visiting. WP odd and buggy and I think it will stay that way for ever and ever. You’ll be shocked to learn that I got even more bugs after registering the domain. 🧐🤓

Hey Nicole,

Very interesting new website. Here’s a painting for your church by me.

Hope you like it.

WordPress much different than when I first showed up five years ago. I must pay closer attention to the changes it makes. Thank you for getting my attention. Best success with Saint Joan Creative Studio.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m very grateful to everyone who has been supportive. It’s been literally a snap decision it’s happened that fast but it must be right because I’m happy with what’s happening so far.

Welcome back! We missed you. Glad you figured out how to overcome the trolling and technical issues, and congrats on progress with writing and research galore! That’s exciting. Clever idea for the novel and tying it into your name here. I would rock that creative studio – floor to ceiling bookshelf? Retro vibe? Be still, my heart!

I’m doing great – love is in my 2021 forecast, let’s just put it that way. Lots of writing projects cooking on the stove, too. For contests and journal submissions.

My pleasure on the interview! 🙂

I’m my own toughest critic so if I like something I did, to the point of burying the hatchet with WordPress… and giving them ca$h? Everyone … 👏🏽 back 👏🏽 up.

♥️ is in the air? ♥️ There’s definitely plenty for you and your work. Hang in there and most importantly, have fun.

I’ve been tempted to give WP cash but I’m not on here often enough.

That’s right, I’ve been bitten by the love bug. Totally unexpected during these times. I’m having fun and trying to balance that world with my writing projects. Hoping to post something on here in the next couple of weeks. 🙂

Well, I am so glad to know you’re happy and preoccupied with something that brings you joy. I think it will be worth it to hand out some cash to WP because you are talented, and you will want to have a platform ready to promote your books. I’m already volunteer for your beta reading group, so count me in. Warm hugs.

Looking forward to reading all the new material!

But, do we no longer address you as Sabiscuit, then? Or, perhaps, Sa’ Biscuit, the Sainted Biscuit? Saint Nicole’s Biscuit Tin? I think we should be told.
