Your 365 question for the day:
Is there a book that changed your life, and if so, what was it?

My answer is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I read that book when I was a wee child, and it introduced me not only to portmanteau words, but to the idea that you could make language do what you wante... Read more of this blog post »

Tonight I listened to a story where a man who made blades said this:

"If you want to be content in life, be a man of action. This will bring you results. And any result, whether success or failure, will still bring you contentment because at least you have lived out that dream."

It pleased me very... Read more of this blog post »

I am still dealing with back pain, so my Facebook time continues to be limited, to my dismay. It is also obscenely cold here right now, so I am –like many of you—counting down the days till spring.

Question 1:
You have a full time job -- how did you find the time to write a novel?

I wish I could say that I had a strict writing schedule but I didn’t. Sometimes I would block off time over the lunch hour, as if I had a lunch meeting with book. Sometimes I would find chunks of time during travel... Read more of this blog post »

In my last blog I compared the Oregon Standoff to Greek tragedy. They were heroes with fatal flaws, valiantly fighting for their beliefs, but alas, in the end brought down by fate and their own inner demons.

In the two weeks since that posting, the four remaining militants in the Malheur Refuge in... Read more of this blog post »

The Holiday

Martin slid the metallic green Ford Escort into one of the parking bays; he’d had a free choice and had decided on the one directly outside the building.

“It isn’t very big, is it,” said his companion, a statement rather than a question.

This week the age old question of pricing has raised its head. The maths is simple, charge high to make money or charge low and get more people to pay for a product. It arose from the Liverpool FC fiasco this week where ticket prices are the topic of conversation.

She signed herself 'Kateryn the Quene KP', perhaps to distinguish herself from Henry's previous two Queen Katherines, or to ass... Read more of this blog post »
