Matthew J. Olson Matthew J. Olson's blog:
Yesterday, Jynx was begging to be let out. He was running to the door and throwing a fit. So my wife gave in and got the cat in his harness. She took him out and put him on his leash.

It was in the mid 80s and humid out. There was also not a cloud in the sky. Who could blame Jynx for changing his... Read more of this blog post »

Pink zinnia




Sometimes I get so deeply focused on or persimmon grafting
that I forget to show you the big-picture garden. So I snuck out
between rain showers Friday to snap some shots of this and that.

young vegetable seedlings and then mulch...

Some publishing houses are pretty intense. Others do a lighter edit. But they are all centered aroun...

Left Blinknott on the sofa and ordered him a Pizza as soon as I got up, which I then left on the table in front of him.
At least when I got home he was still there and no more screaming in the night. Though he has not said a word to me yet. Being honest, other than finding the Pizza half eaten I w... Read more of this blog post »

I am thrilled to share my interview with not only one of the most successful historians writing today but also a personal hero: Alison Weir. My first Alison Weir book was The Princes in the Tower.

Ailana was a force of Nature.
Not like storm waves thundering against cliffs. More like a gentle lakeside breeze when you’re lost in your thoughts. A breeze hardly noticed as it softly helps you ease free of your troubles.
Ailana was so fully alive she redefined the concept of living. And when she... Read more of this blog post »

A couple of years ago, author and educator Tim Esaias calculated there are some 9,720 variations on POV. Is it any wonder grasping what POV and Viewpoint are can boggle the mind? To understand POV, I took a time out from my writing to educate myself on all things POV and Viewpoint. Six months lat... Read more of this blog post »
