Isaac’s heart sank with guilt.

He lowered his face into the damp moss, gritting his teeth and clenching his fists into tight balls.

The day he feared most had arrived and yet he still couldn’t believe it was happening. The Redcoats had landed in force. They were going to round up everyone and send... Read more of this blog post »

How bad do things in the United States have to be to instigate a Worldwide Women’s March?

On Saturday, as you know, women on every continent (yes, believe it or not, women were marching in Antarctica!) based—in part—on the inauguration of President Trump and his cabinet members, shuffled and prot... Read more of this blog post »

Abbie Williams Abbie Williams's blog:
So, this may not be a problem most people contend with, I admit. Maybe I should seek some sort of professional opinion, because I do encounter this issue time and again when I am writing - I tend to fall in love with men I write about. Is it a phenomenon common to writers? Am I crazy in a vaguely... Read more of this blog post »

I am so happy and proud to be a part of this family at Goodreads. It is so wonderful to see that people are still reading, whether it is ebooks, hardbacks, or softbacks. People are searching to learn about new people, new ideas, and how life is outside of their world. They are escaping, growing,... Read more of this blog post »

First of all, that book that just appeared in the list of books, Catch My Breath, coming out in September, is not being written by me. I assume it's by a different Paul Briggs and there was some sort of confusion in getting it into the Goodreads system. (I'm also not the Australian boxer Paul "Th... Read more of this blog post »

I did not want to be one of those writers who sounds off about politics. I intended to cultivate a public persona of neutrality based on Thomas More, a man known for his public silence. Upon reflection, I am forced to concede that keeping quiet did not save More. I should not expect it to protect... Read more of this blog post »

Intro

I'm still hard at work on a new novel, tentatively titled “Statues in the Cloud”. My best guess is that it will take me until 2020 to write (if life doesn't get in the way, which it always does).

I thought it was time for another tease to prove to myself and the world that progress is actual... Read more of this blog post »

A few million (mostly) women in the U.S. and abroad marched yesterday. They marched to protest various forms of oppression, symbolized in a new presidential platform that involved explicit racism, sexism, and xenophobia.


That seems like a good thing.

Empathy
is the ability
to feel what
another feels
and see perspectives
beyond just
me.

And I can’t help
but to try and see your way,
can’t help but to try
to seek how you see-

(though somewhere in the midst
of all that seeing,
I am left with the chaos
of too many voices,
