No reason to try to reduce it

Not that long ago I wrote in a poem that 'life is so filled with meaning, there is no reason to try to reduce it'. That is how I feel and have felt like for years. Some sense of meaninglessness can come from an attack from others, at times subconscious, slowly but surely eroding one's self-respec... Read more of this blog post »

We now return to my occasional series, "Exhibitions Steven has enjoyed"...

Smoke and Mirrors is a new temporary exhibition at the Wellcome Collection in London. (That's magic as in sleight-of-hand, not the kind of magic I write about in my books.) It asks "how our biases affect our perception an... Read more of this blog post »

The Death of the Republican Party

The death of the Republican Party is upon us—and we should rejoice. But those who believe its demise is due solely to President Trump’s prejudice are mistaken. The Republican Party is diseased, and its death has been a long time coming.

Poem: July

July is cherry red,bold and brave and daring.Old Glory waves in silenceover bent heads proudly staring.
July is full of romance,like a kiss before goodbye.Summer sweat, like beads of glass,shatters fireworks in the sky.
July is made of water,like a lake alive again.Snowcones melting on hot lipsas t... Read more of this blog post »

Self-editing for the Know-It-All Author (Post #2)


Take a little test. Count how many times you used “that” in your completed manuscript. I had over five hundred in my last manuscript. My editor told me to delete four hundred. Yikes!...

One man’s wife is another’s obsession.

I didn’t want to wake up this morning.



Granted, I like my life, so waking up was better than not waking up. But I would have rather stayed in dream mode. There are so many little piddling reasons for that.

The Will of God

Doing your own will is like building sand castles. It can be a lot of fun, but eventually all your kingdoms will fall into the sea and it will be like you never existed. Doing the will of God will change all things and time itself will pay homage to your creation. Matt 26:39

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
