7:47AM
Well then... I basically woke up automatically at the typical time my alarm clock wakes me up (quarter to 7) but I managed to get back to sleep a few times until eventually getting up for good just now at basically quarter to 8. Yeah, I'm not drinking tonight. Got a cup of coffee brewed alr... Read more of this blog post »

Some of you know that I created the ZENBand, which is a 100% cotton headband with removable, flat pillow speakers that are comfortable while lying down or resting on your side. It also functions as an eye-mask. I originally created it as a tool for stress relief, meditation and hypnosis. In fact,... Read more of this blog post »

All that protesting in France has started to show up here in Canada. I agree with it on one point - carbon tax. I don't like the notion of carbon taxes. I don't think throwing money at a problem will make it go away, and it's simple logic to assume that if a corporation can make a higher profit b... Read more of this blog post »

Remember a few years back, there was that whole movement called “Random Acts of Kindness?”

I recall hearing about it—everywhere, ad nauseum—but I don’t remember actually witnessing a single random act (outside of the ones I committed myself, like giving the tollbooth operator an extra dollar to p... Read more of this blog post »

My mum passed on to whatever is next on the 12th of December. I didn’t make it to her in time as I had to take several stops on the journey because I was so tired and my hands in so much pain. I missed her by less than an hour.


I spent some time with her and she was back in her home town of Gla...

Do you remember the excitement of getting the Wish Book in the mail? To me, that event marked the beginning of the Christmas season. My brother and I would pore over the pages, marking the things we wanted. One of my most fervent wishes was to receive a full-on cowgirl outfit, so those pages of [...

When I make these lists, I normally do so to recommend all the books on them. But once in a while I’ll use the lists for a different purpose. The most controversial children’s book of 2018 didn’t come from the areas you might usually expect. One of them was, as it turns out, an easy book.

Brittney L. Divine Brittney L. Divine's blog:
I love writing novels with bad boys. The complexity that an anti-hero has as a character makes for a wonderful tale. You never know what they will and won't do. There is an extra amount of suspense just trying to figure them out.
Do you prefer the good guy or bad guy and why? I'd love to hear you... Read more of this blog post »

For startups, 2009 was a good year. More than 20 companies launched at that time, including Uber, Slack, Pinterest, and Blue Apron, eventually achieved $1 billion-plus valuations. Given that those companies were all venture-financed and emerged from Silicon Valley, you might assume that the ke...

I’m not a fan of Christmas songs, so I thought it would be interesting to make a playlist of music related to, or about history. With one exception, all the songs here are from my personal collection. Consequently, there’s a lot of folk and rock, particularly Billy Bragg and Iron Maiden. I’ve add...

Producing or filming a play involves making a whole lot of choices – not just about about “obvious” things such as casting, costumes, set design, lighting, music, and so on. Many of the choices are text-related, such as how to interpret and deliver the dialogue, what bits of stage business or act...

When I was asked to write young adult (YA) novels in 2010, I’ll admit it, I wasn’t a YA reader. I mean, that genre was for teenagers, right? But with a career opportunity on the table, I started doing some research.


First, I asked around to my reader friends to see who were reading young adult. ...

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
