Allison Pang Allison Pang's blog:

So it’s been a while since my last post – lots of things going on I suppose. Some good, some bad, some I’m not entirely sure about.

Neal Asher Neal Asher's blog:
I am constantly surprised by the prejudice I find in some against vaping – the unthinking bias and the fact-twisting. It’s taking millions of people out of a lethal habit, it’s saving lives, and in social situations it produces only the smell many already have pumping from numerous kinds of scent...

Nora Roberts Nora Roberts's blog:

Sometimes they’re pretty perfect. Or, for me, absolutely close enough when they come after a week of nose-to-the-grindstone writing, then decide to offer in March a day like the bonny month of May. One day only as today is much cooler and just gloomy–but let’s not get greedy.

Atticus and I both w...

I was delighted to see two photos of my books, on sale at independent bookstores. I love the thought of readers browsing the tables and discovering my work! I've haunted bookstores since I was a grade-schooler and have found countless treasured novels that way.

In an attempt to push oil prices up, OPEC and a collection of eleven other oil producing nations agreed last November to cut their collective production by 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) during the first six months of 2017. That’s been somewhat successful, though certainly not as effective of...

So there I was, about a year ago now, sitting on Siesta Key beach (rated the #1 beach in America, by the way) and sipping on my tropical drink with the little umbrella – all figuratively speaking, of course – when the unthinkable happened: I decided that it was time to give up the way of the full...

By the end of first grade, every child has learned to grow a plant. They fill a cup with soil and press a seed into it. They pour water over their cup, place it in a sunny window, and wait. Sure enough, within days there are stirrings of life. First, roots begin to emerge, then a sprout, then a s...
