Hi Sharon,

There's actually a pretty good story about where DEAD RUN came from. Years ago, PJ and my dad and I were driving home from my grandparents' house in Door County, WI -- the trip has lots of stretches of farmland dotted with tiny bergs like Four Corners. It was a spectacular fall day, sunny and warm, and we began to notice that all the towns seemed completely deserted, not a soul in sight. Shouldn't everybody be outside enjoying the weather? Our minds immediately went to the dark side - after eliminating alien abduction, we decided that something horrible must have happened and began crafting a story from there. My long-suffering father, who always remained silent (and amused) during our madcap creative binges, finally looked at both of us and reminded us there was a Green Bay Packers game on TV. (less)

August 2020/Alternate Universe!

August in an Alternate Universe

A friend of mine recently sent out a newsletter with this title, and it seemed so appropriate, I’ve decided to steal her idea. I hope she won’t mind. It’s not really plagiarism if you’re honest about it, is it?

Things have been so surreal for so long, this alternate universe is actually beginning to feel normal -- proof that we are able to adapt to anything in time, e Read more of this blog post »
