365 question time! Today's is: What gives you the creepy-crawly feeling? Bugs? Snakes? Deranged axe murderers in the basement? I'm anti-gore, so any sort of overly bloody or gruesome TV show or movie is right out.

Some of them have been there for quite awhile, like Rama II, which I haven't touched since finishing page 56 way back in March 2015.

I had many pet peeves when I was a writing teacher, and almost none of them came directly from the students themselves. They came, instead, from the students’ warped sense of what writing should look like, both in practice and in execution, and it still gets my knickers in a twist to think of the...

I'm happy to say that more of Steampunk genre is coming into Wizards' Secret Service Book 3! The book series is getting better. Book 3 has more magic, secrets, technology and family relationships. The series is getting a much darker atmosphere.
