Kathryn Rishoff Kathryn Rishoff's blog:
Yesterday two people were shot in cold blood on live TV in Virginia. The shooter then posted the killings on social media, and later took his own life.

I can’t think of anything more horrifying or terrible, unfair, unjust, cruel, or unbelievable than this.

I don’t how he got the gun he used, what... Read more of this blog post »

Readers,

Please look for an update that will be available for Running Northwest in the next week or so. Amazon may send you one on their own. I just fixed a few minor issues and fixed the TOC.

If I promised you
forever
Would that be
enough time

How much love I
Have for you to

To paint a

That would hang up
On the wall
forever

Who's up for a Transformers / Transporter X-over? Seems like a natural and a license to print money. Hell, maybe I'll start on a screenplay. Maybe throw in the Fast and Furious too.
