This is Newb, our new kitten. Newb is my peace offering for being gone so long. I hope he has made you feel less stabby towards me. He seems to have that effect.
Now, let’s get to updates!
I had a brain fart for most of April and May and June…and some of July. Those months I just couldn’t even loo...Read more of this blog post »
Spectacular day. Sunny and clear with true blue skies. I skip my morning workout in the anticipation of some urban hiking.
It’s Patrick who drives us into the airport. He’s Missoula born and bred, and knows so much about the area. It’s striking to realize how thick the smoke had been on our arriv...Read more of this blog post »

The Bad Boy Collection, 1
Kurtis is used to getting what he wants. Women fall at his feet, and he can simply pick which woman he wants for that night. Tillie Powell, however, is completely different. She has never fallen for his tricks, and she’s...Read more of this blog post »
Since I’m staying with the same basic layout and color scheme, most of the newness is under the hood. Can you believe I’ve been using that same grainy, gray background image since 2003? What can I say? It matches my business card.
The new theme is written in HTML5 and CSS3 with Bootstrap. I like B...Read more of this blog post »

Ayer publiqué un artículo en PlayGround sobre por qué mis amigas no quieren ser mamás, aunque, en verdad, de lo que trataba aquel texto no era exactamente de la no-maternidad, sino más bien de lo difícil que es respetar y entender las opciones que las demás mujeres toman con res...

So, via Twitter, I happened across this post by Jeff Somers at Barnes and Noble (and incidentally that link would not work from my phone, so B&N might want to figure out how to fix that). But good topic! Five “weird” fantasy worlds.
Now, I have absolutely no objection to a more generic settin...Read more of this blog post »
"For Benjamin, radio, like film, carries the potential for redistributing the means of aesthetic production, dissemination, and consumption. That its potential would not be fulfilled in Brechtian terms, or in the arrival of a “two-way medium,” is a possibility Benjamin was acutely aware of."

The chickens have gone into high gear and we have many eggs. I concocted this non-authentic Egg and Vegetable Vindaloo to use up some of the bounty. Like most of what I cook, it's not from a recipe and the ingredients are what's on hand. But it turned out so tasty that I thought I'd share it --... Read more of this blog post »
As a lifelong horror lover who has co-written and co-produced a short zombie film, I've often pondered why zombies have so taken hold of the public imagination. An uncomfortable revelation dawned on me in 2014 as I watched the pol... Read more of this blog post »
I’m being nibbled to death by ducks. Or perhaps I am a duck, nibbling things to death. Either way I have accomplished many many small important things that probably add up to a lot but somehow don’t *seem* to.

Ideas are cheap.
Everyone knows that. They’re optional, since you can have a great story without an unoriginal idea behind it. They’re common as dirt–so common, in fact, that most writers have more than they could ever find time to write–and they’re only one very small component of a finished pie...Read more of this blog post »
What do you create?
I write family dramas with strong female characters that usually explore what it means to be biracial (i.e. women’s fiction). I’ve also got a middle-grade fantasy series coming out in the spring that puts a twist on the Japanese folk tales my mother told me, told from the PO...Read more of this blog post »

Pardon this moment of book self-promotion: For many people — at least in this part of the world — September marks a time of new beginnings.

Pema Chodron's new bookis out this month. I was rendered speechless by her invitation to write the short foreword for the book, the first time I've ever agreed to do this. She's a caring, generous, magical person, a teacher with a special voice, one worth listening to.
