Even though I have lived in the West Country for over ten years, I am ashamed to admit that until just a few weeks ago I had never set foot inside the famous Roman Baths at Bath. This oversight becomes even more peculiar when you consider that I live in Bristol, which is probably less than fif...Read more of this blog post »

The fabulous Susie Day (whose Pea's Book series is one of my favorite MG series, ever) tagged me last week to do the Ten Terrible Titles meme. Here are the rules:

This morning, I read with interest an article entitled Who killed the contemporary Christian music industry? over at The Week. I’m usually pretty skeptical of such pieces. The Christian music biz is an easy target for haters of the evangelical brand. Which often guarantees thatarticles like the o...Read more of this blog post »
One of the most damning sentences that any creative artist can read in a review. I don’t care if you’re an author, or a scriptwriter, or a producer—the words make you cringe, and strike fear deep in your heart. Lack of chemistry between your lead c...Read more of this blog post »
قليل من العرب والأتراك من يعرفون أن القسطنطينية فضَّلت أن تذهب إلى الأتراك على أن تخضع لسلطان الكاثوليكية في روما، وفيما قبل هذا الفتح العظيم جرت أحد أهم المحاولات في توحيد الكنيستين تحت سلطان البابا في روما، وأ... Read more of this blog post »

The week has been insanely busy yet again. The bats flying in the windows are not quite as large, but it’s the tennis game of life, where a problem heads at us, we hit it to the opposite side of the court, it comes back at us again, and ba...Read more of this blog post »

June 1st. Ugg. The year is practically over and I'm behind in my writing goals.
I hate when that happens.
Anyhew, still working on edits for Wedding Date for Hire, but I hope to hand them in this week. Already planning to write a third in this series then write in a totally different g... Read more of this blog post »

I do enjoy May usually. Rain — usually. (Certainly this year, good heavens, it can stop for a week or two now, please.) Not too hot. (Very much not too hot this year; it was 55 degrees this morning. Amazing. Brr.)
Flowers, of course!
I do not recommend that you actually teach a young...Read more of this blog post »
Horus Gilgamesh is the author of the Awkward Moments (Not Found In Your Average) Children’s Bible, which documents many of the Bible’s little-known verses.
After writing that book and a sequel, he decided to do something *really* blasphemous: create a similar book focusing on the Qur’an.

If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you know my friend J. Anderson Coats says a lot of things that resonate with me. She’s the one who gave me my favorite piece of writing adviceand came up with that great cow-through-a-colander writing metaphor.

It feels like everything that could be said about Mad Max: Fury Road has already been said, but I’m not going to let that stop me from trying anyway. I wasn’t even going to see it, initially. I remember that I watched one of the earlier films – it may hav...Read more of this blog post »
It’s not to say ghosts, or spirits do not exist. Why, if you believe, we ourselves are spirits…trapped in a shell we call a body. Then when that body corrupts and fails a new world opens to us.

Picoreview: Tomorrowland: boring.
I really wanted to like it, as it had a message I certainly support, and there were a lot of good *pieces*, but overall it failed to click.

June 16, 2010 was a monumental day in my life. It was the release day of Maid of Murder, my very first mystery novel.
