Here’s one thing you don’t know about me:
I can draw.
I mean sketch. And paint. And sculpt. I can do art stuff.
And one day, I plan to write and illustrate a picture book for kids. Because that seems like a fun transition to navigate.

It’s Friday the 13th! Which means I’ve gotta give away a few Cainsville prizes, because the books are rife withsuperstitions. I’m going to give away one book—your choice of an Omens hardcover or getting on the ARC* list for Visions (I expect ARCs in the spring) I’ll also give away 3Omens totes as...Read more of this blog post »
Question: What flies through the sky delivering presents the night before Christmas?
Answer: An Amazon Drone.
This is not the case quite yet, but may well be in the not too distant future, as most of you have probably heard by now. Amazon chief executive and robot fanatic, Jeff Bezos, plans to have...Read more of this blog post »
That’s right! Second Skin has been officially released into the wild. As usual, I’m a mix between proud and anxious and… hungry? Huh. Anyway, though this is the second book I’ve had published, it’s the first I wrote. I’m proud to say that I took a lot of chances with the plot and the concept, and...Read more of this blog post »
I just figured out that I may possibly have too much to do. It might be something I should have figured out a while ago, but I’m always a little behind.
I’m working on my shifter story (yes, Steve, Jen, Mom, Ty, Deanna and anyone else who’s waiting) and it’s coming along nicely plus I have a fando...Read more of this blog post »

I'm so thrilled to be on a panel at the Montgomery County Book Festival, February 15, 2014! I've attended this book festival for a couple years now, and to be invited to participate as an author is such an honor! They're still announcing the author lineup, but I've seen it, and it's exciting!

We hear a lot about generics these days. Everything from
prescription drugs to clothing has a no-name brand. The big draw is the lower

“It took out the Northeast faster than Manuel Noriega does a bag of Oreos.”
Manuel Noriega has (or had) a large love of Oreo cookies. I wouldn't spin no crap on that. Here's some support from back in the day when he first... Read more of this blog post »
Bagels. Everyone knows that New York bagels are no longer what they used to be. Victims of inflation, they’ve gotten bigger, softer, sweeter over time. While you can occasionally find a decent New York bagel (I appreciate the mini bagels at Russ and Daughters), most of them are pretty sad.

Sunday was my birthday. I won’t tell you how old I am, but it probably isn’t that hard to figure out. I’m not someone who normally worries too much about my chronological age, because A: there’s nothing I can do about it, and B: no one can make me act my age.
This year, my first thought upon the c...Read more of this blog post »

Copyright is, in a nutshell, the right to copy. If you create something, you effectively own the rights to it. This applies to written words as well as various other artforms, including dance and music. The copyright is valid for a set number of years...Read more of this blog post »
Today, I’m sharing some of the Top Ten lists you have sent me this week. I love reading these lists because they introduce me to new books and remind of ones I love . . . yet, I curse them also because, seriously, how is one person supposed to read all these great things. Still, they are cool!

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is considerably better than the first movie in the trilogy. It has a more coherent structure, genuinely interesting character development, and fucking awesome dragon action. I liked it a lot — yet I was painfully aware of how bad the movie was. Here's what you...Read more of this blog post »

So, I stopped taking 5 HTP a few weeks ago. I was so freaking depressed all the time, as my blog entries indicate, and I couldn’t figure it out, because 5 HTP is supposed to be good for depression. I was taking it for OCD management, and it did work well for that, but I was just… demoralized and...Read more of this blog post »
Starbucks and Hipsterism
I often observe Polish people on the street, which as I have been living in the country for many years, is certainly a hard thing to avoid. One thing that has particularly grabbed my attention over the last few years is the way Poles – at least in Warsaw anyway – have f...Read more of this blog post »

It's been a extraordinary year and I thank you all for that.
I wish you all a Happy New Year.
May all your dreams come true in 2014.
I pair today’s two 2013 faves for one big reason – they both definitely have the power to pull you out of any book hangover…or to plunge you into one.
Both of these books also have the distinction of being the two I recommended the most frequently in the past year, in large part because I think bo...Read more of this blog post »
