Закончил книгу, посвященную Системе 2.1
Книга не столько отвечает, сколько задает вопросы – в какую сторону развиваться обществу (часто методом «от противного»). В ней разбираются ошибки, которые закладываются в человека на системном уровне образованием, религией и социумом. На множестве примеров... Read more of this blog post »

“Quinn’s fans will be grateful she’s crossed the pond for this textured look at life in New York during the 1770s” Kirkus (Starred). And Booklist (also Starred), celebrates an “abundance of dry wit and swoonworthy romance for which she is best known and loved.” The...Read more of this blog post »
Sachin Tendulkar, it is conjectured frequently, is God. Like God, he is seldom heard, on issues of importance, or seen, at least in Rajya Sabha, and like God, when we really really need him, he is busy answering someone else’s prayers, or at least so say those who claim that he c...Read more of this blog post »

Tomorrow, I will sit down and spend hours writing my current work in progress. I’m not sure right now if it’s going to be a hit, if my readers will love it or loathe it, or if it’s the best thing I’ve ever written. I don’t know if it will be a nail in the coffin of my writing career or if it will...Read more of this blog post »
On The Lake Fayetteville Trail. Blackberry in full bloom.
Into rewrite of Chapter 26 of my wip titled “The Corpsemakers” since very early morning. Hit an idea block on one of the sub-plots and a pesky antagonist acting out of character, dialogue stilted, not convincing. Hard to believ...Read more of this blog post »
Life into Mist
A story about life, love, pain, wishes.

Siskoni suositteli minulle ruotsalaisen Mats Wahlin nuortenkirjaa Ruotsia idiooteille, joten päätin lukea sen, vaikka ableistinen nimi häiritsikin. Kirjasta tuli jollain lailla mieleen Bertin päiväkirja, mutta se on tummasävyisempi, mustan huumorin sävyttämä.

While I did enjoy The Black Prism to an extent, I remember feeling as though something was missing from the Lightbringer series, some kind of connection I felt instantly while reading Weeks’ The Night Angel trilogy. I often share the books I read with my best friend, and as I recall she came away...Read more of this blog post »
Pearl was a miracle.
The miracle arrived in 1983 with a smile and a wave when she was desperately needed. I am convinced she was a gift from the angels to my mother.

Saturday saw me in Brunsbüttel for the third year in a row. The Waltriathlon, which takes place in a pool next to the Elbe River.
With my eyes on Rotterdam, I decided to get into the Aussie spirit and wore my green and gold suit from the 2013 Age Group Championships. The good news is it still fits...Read more of this blog post »
I'm struggling with finishing Draft 5 of TUBE. I've been writing it for over a year now, and new stories are crowding it out of my mind, but every day I get up and I know I have to finish it. It's an important story—for me and for you—and so it's important I do...Read more of this blog post »

A Small Charity is born
I met David Baldwin – founder of St. Peter’s Lifeline – on Facebook in 2015. I had spent two years trying to find a charity to support with my book, Breath of Africa, but it should not have taken me so long.
This is the first of a blog series,...Read more of this blog post »

I got so many compliments for my sunglasses poses in my original post, and my selfie. The thing is, it didn’t all go perfectly, and I have these bloopers as proof! At first, the sunglasses came off a few times.

Tänään siirryn taruolennoista hetkiseksi luonnontieteitten pariin. Tämä kertomus on julkaistu Oulun Wiikko-Sanomissa ja se oli mielestäni sen verran erikoinen että ansaitsi tulla blogatuksi. En tiedä onko kyseessä oikea luonnonilmiö vai jokin epämääräinen kansantarina. Juttu on kuitenkin tässä ki... Read more of this blog post »
