Play with the cats. Spend time with my wife. Then when I do get butt in writing chair, I use sprints. It's magical to set a timer for thirty minutes at a time and concentrate on what I'm doing.(less)

Getting Into a Crime Scene

[image error]

My friend Ben Ireland, author of the Young Adult Urban Fantasy Billy Blacksmith series asked me via Twitter:

Deserving Pulitzer prize winner. Very timely with all the Black Lives Matter protests going on right now.

This is fiction but based on a true story. Terrific read.
