About Me: Cherie Jade Arbuckle

August of 1980, I crashed a D&D game at summer camp. Little did I know that I’d started a life-long addiction that day. Two weeks after that, I DM’ed a game for the first time. Since then, I’ve GM’ed everything from D&D to World of Darkness to Toon. Basically, if I can get my hands on it, I’ll try to run it.  I’m also an RPG game writer. I’ve written articles for Inphobia (originally called White Wolf Magazine), Challenge, and Ars Magica’s supplement Medieval Tapestry. I’ve also self-published two book to help GMs make running games easier. You can get them at RPGNow and DriveThruRPG. The two books are:

This blog is my first foray into fiction writing. I’d always wanted to write fiction, but plot creation seemed way beyond my abilities, despite my having written a book about how to develop an RPG adventure plot. With RPGs, I could come up with a basic idea, figure out how the adventure/story would start, then throw it to my players, who would then created the plot simply by playing their characters. But to come up with one for a story seemed a daunting task. In 2011, I decided I was going to learn to write fiction, no matter how long it took me. It’s been a long, strange trip so far, but I’m well into my first novel: Lucifer’s Godchild. I hope to see the light at the end of the tunnel on this book and have self-published it by the end of 2016.

When I’m not wrestling with words, I play RPGs, do art journaling, draw, knit, crochet, do needlework of all kinds, sew, catch up on social media, and when I find time from all of that, read. Aside from this blog, you can find me on

I must admit, I rarely log into twitter. Email and Facebook are the easiest ways to contact me.

Welcome to my crazy world 😉
