Here's what's happening in frigid Central New York at present! First of all, my new pup Miles has nearly doubled in size since we got him. He may have doubled in cuteness as well. I'm less sure about that because I don't have an accurate tool to measure cuteness. I guess I'll let you decide. … Continue reading Things That Need To Happen
I've mentioned before about times when writing has been difficult. I am not even pretending to pretend that I'm unique (in any way) with regard to this or any other aspect of this gig. But as is true with each of those other writers, how that experience feels is unique. To me, and to everyone … Continue reading It’s Been Weird…

But I don't expect you to take my … Continue reading Something I Never Do

My publisher, Northern Lake Publishing, announced today that the electronic version of TBoB will be moving to Kindle Unlimited in … Continue reading Release Day!
I have always been a huge fan of the month of April.

Northern Lake Publishing has announced its third release for 2018, and it will be... And, since my name appears conspicuously on the cover, I guess I'm helping in some way or another.
