I get to learn lots about bygone cultures, nurture relationships, confront evil, fight dragons both real and imagined, and try out new writing techniques.

English History in the 1500s was not so different than it is now; we face many of the same issues plaguing the court of Henry VIII.


In May 1517, there was a large contingent of French and Italian immigrants in London. They were situated near the city’s financial district and providing many services for the court. They were of such number that male Londoners were having difficulty obtaining po...

“And then Jack chopped down what was the world's last beanstalk, adding murder and ecological terrorism to the theft, enticement, and trespass charges already mentioned, and all the giant's children didn't have a daddy anymore.
