Good News, Everyone!

Yes, I am totally mimicking the professor from Futurama right now, though his news isn't usually great.
A few things to announce: first of all writing on the second Fluffy Folktales book has been slow going. The characters are being a pain in my neck. (Cooperate, people!) It has been fun to write so far, but I'm sort of letting the story simmer and other projects have grabbed my attention while... Read more of this blog post »

"I loved reading this anthology! Each of the works took me out of the real world and into lands of enchantment, and I had a great time in every one. Whether I was dealing with a poem or a story, the characters were easy to envision and the worlds w..." Read more of this review »

Another amazing tale of dragons and octopi!
I thoroughly enjoyed delving back into this magical world of dragons and sea life. The way the golden dragons are open to meeting new dragons and learning about their cultures and traditions is a lesson for

The Ritual by Ashley Uzzell
"After a prologue that drips with future devastation, chapter one picks up right where the first book let off - the orphan Tara tribe about to head into battle with the raiding Boman tribe.

The Haunting of Room 909 by Michael   James
"I really enjoyed this, I do have to say it is more for older children. The horror side of things can be detailed in some places.

I just like how it explored the history, how the story was told was just great. You went on an adventure with the main..." Read more of this review »

“He changed me. He helped me see who I really was and realize that I didn’t like that person. He made me want to be different. He made me want to be better to myself and everyone else.”
Ashley Uzzell, What Money Can't Buy

“To him the stars seemed like so many musical notes affixed to the sky, just waiting for somebody to unfasten them.”
Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
Dr. Seuss

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
Mark Twain

“He changed me. He helped me see who I really was and realize that I didn’t like that person. He made me want to be different. He made me want to be better to myself and everyone else.”
Ashley Uzzell, What Money Can't Buy

“All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need... fantasies to make life bearable."

REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little—"

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

"They're not the same at all!"

YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME...SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED.

"Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point—"

MY POINT EXACTLY.”
Terry Pratchett, Hogfather
