I'm not without bias, but I'd like to think I came at this book with an open mind. I have a deep respect for hard-won expertise. But, like most academics, I also have a d... Read more of this blog post »

So, this Friday, my last book in the Legend of Carter Gabel series will be released. Last Book. Whew, about three years ago, I didn’t think this was ever going to be an option, let alone a completion of something. I’ve met some great people thus far and can’t wait to meet a ton more.
I hope you’ll...Read more of this blog post »

A few more words on my quest to rejoin the 40K Collective.
I have converted the storage shed in the back yard into a painting studio. At least a spray painting studio. My buddy Ross left me some nice Citadel spray paints that he couldn’t take in the...Read more of this blog post »

Διάβασα πρώτη φορά την Άννα Καρένινα, εκεί γύρω στα δεκαπέντε μου, μαζί με όλον τον Τολστόι και τον Ντοστογιέφσκι, γιατί εκείνη τη χρονιά «διάβαζα τους Ρώσους». Έκτοτε αν κι έχω ξαναδιαβάσει σχεδόν όλα τα μυθιστορήματα του Ντοστογιέφσκι ενήλικη και σε διαφορετικές δεκαετίες ζωής, δεν είχα διαβάσ... Read more of this blog post »

Magic is generally defined as the application of one’s will to create various effects or achieve one’s intentions. And surely Elven Magic would adhere to this definition as well. However, Elven Magic traditionally, both in reality and fiction, Fairy Tales and Faerie Lore, has associ...Read more of this blog post »
I woke up to an email from a close friend of 25 years that his wife had passed away unexpectedly last night. She’d been fighting cancer for several years, had made progress, then had setbacks, and then made progress again. While I knew them both, I’d spent many hours over the years with my friend...Read more of this blog post »

I love oddly worded signs. I shared this one I ran across at a motel in Omaha on Facebook recently, but why should my Facebook friends have all the fun?
Why not just “SWIMMING ALONE PROHIBITED?”

Last night, God engineered a few divine appointments. Sheryl Chandler of Truth and Mercy Pro-life Ministries and I met with a Vietnamese couple who chose life over abortion a few months ago.

it’s me! You’re feminist killjoy friend. I’ve been working on a post for how I’m no fun at parties because I point out when people use problematic language (no, hun, it’s sex worker…) but that’s a tricky mine filled post and it’s taking longer than I had expected.
In the meantime, I’ve...Read more of this blog post »
Very much enjoying Ruskin Bond's autobiography Lone Fox Dancing (not to be confused with his reading memoir or his essays about his father, also out recently). Poor little Ruskin had such a sad and lonely childhood (with the only brief bright spot being his father, who died young) but his stories... Read more of this blog post »
You know, FUNNY GIRL wasn’t the only anthology out this year. I seem to recall quite a few of them gracing our bookstore and library shelves in 2017. One of them struck me as particularly keen too. Called Our Story Begins it contains actual books created by famous children’s book authors and il...Read more of this blog post »
The show is about eight people who are "senesate" (get it?) in that they can telepathically connect with the other people in their "cluster." Not only can they hear each other, they can help each o... Read more of this blog post »
It’s important to me to celebrate the days that mark the changing of the seasons. Solstices, Equinoxes, and the cross quarter days between them, signal a time to remember the ancient tides of our ancestors, tides that still herald the rise and fall of archetypal changes, the dance of dark and lig...Read more of this blog post »
I finally saw Wonder Woman and LOVED it. Gotta admire a movie where the guy is finally the one who has to be naked on the screen. AND it’s one of my boyfriends, Chris Pine!!!
I mean seriously.
So, what do you all think? Anyone see Wonder Woman? Anyone love it as much as I did?Read more of this blog post »

This is the perfect book to read as spring begins unfurling tips and buds or if you are emerging from some kind of winter. There are three elements to this elemental story: the garden of the title, the spring, and magic. Not magi... Read more of this blog post »
Today’s the day DI Savage book six is published. Another year, another milestone (or is that millstone?). I really enjoyed writing The Boneyard and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.

Success! It’s working! Or at least, it feels as if it is working as I finish writing for the day and head to the homepage to update my ‘live word counter’. It’s not really live – to actually do that would require some sort of link between my website (the inter-web) and my 2009 version of Word – a...Read more of this blog post »
I’ve put together a small collection of some more Fox concept art I produced since I got the V8 version together.

Depression is a word that is often used to describe a mood or feeling; it is also a term describing a mental disorder. Happiness on the other hand can be viewed as a mood, but is more commonly considered a state of mind.

There were more than a hundred suggestions, in this short span of time.
The one I liked most was this req... Read more of this blog post »
