Last week, I read Rodney J. Sawatsky’s History & Ideology: American Mennonite Identity Definition through History (Pandora Press, 2005). Although published in 2005, this is Sawatsky’s 1977 dissertation with only a few textual amendments. Sawatsky (who passed away just before the book appeared... Read more of this blog post »

The 2014 BBC Proms Season is in full swing and if you can’t get to the Royal Albert Hall you may listen to every concert on BBC Radio Three. You can also watch some of the concerts on television and listen to people talking about The Proms.
I was watching ‘Proms Extra’ when they discussed the dyn... Read more of this blog post »

I met Doug at last year’s Gen Con where I had the pleasure of boothing next door to his table. I was impressed by his engaging personality, RudderHaven’s (a budding publishing company focusing on fiction and non-fiction) stable of work, AND the creative costumes Doug and his wife wore each day at...

I am sorry for the long absence, but I injured my right hand and wrist and had to stay off the computer until it healed; there seems to be a law that when we injure a hand, it must be the one we use the most. I am sure that you all carried on quite well while I was gone, and I appreciate it that... Read more of this blog post »

I really love cowboy boots. I love the way they fit--oh, so comfortable, even in summer. I LOVE the way they look (red is my favorite color). And I love that they go with everything.

I have an ever growing collection. Short ones. Tall ones. Pink ones. Vintage boots. Love them all.

How would a Stone Age man ever have been able to extract usable copper from the earth, heat it sufficiently to allow it to combine with another metal to improve its durability, then be poured into a mold of some kind, and finally shape it into a usable tool or weapon? It would seem a tricky task... Read more of this blog post »

Words are so powerful
Names even more so
Why not use algebraic equations
To symbolize the countries
Especially the ones
Forcing a rise in our blood pressure
Making us enemies of friends we once enjoyed
So the USA can be x + y = z
And Russia can be (a-b) = c
Etcetera
When we don’t have the emotion

Curiosity and the cat
A minute after Ann left, James walked into my office. He was tall, and for the same reason as Ann, too thin. His father was from Kenya and his mother British. His speech had a riveting cadence sprinkled with the shibboleths of his mother’s country.

Why would an award winning author steal an idea from a new, up-and-coming author? Because she can.

When an "idea" is used that is sparked from reading someone else's book, that's one thing. That happens frequently and no harm done. When five or six very original ideas--which have never been seen a... Read more of this blog post »
