I write books; years post-brain injury, I read books with *longer-than-a-minute memory and comprehension* again. I write non-fiction pieces; I read the news, which is supposedly non-fiction. I write poetry occasionally; I've gotten out of the habit of reading poetry -- must fix. I wrote short stories in another life.

I write blog posts; I read opinion pieces. I photograph things that catch my eye; I enjoy my Flickr Friends' photographs.

I tweet; I read tweets, well, okay, I read tweets addictively. I post Facebook status updates through third-party apps when I must.

I use Goodreads to track my reading progress as I relearn to read with comprehension and solid recall; I wrestle with the Goodreads website to write reviews again -- when I'm on th

I needed an outlet beyond Twitter to express what it’s like physically, cognitively, emotionally. And I needed to have fun with it. Louise showed up. So innocent, so eager to be working for the transit system (TTC). This was perfect. I could write a satire for the first time and have fun skewering the TTC through Louise’s innocent eyes. I even created a Twitter account for her to up the fun factor. (less)

Fanship is On!

Piracy. Capricious review takedowns. Nasty lies in author wars. Real fans being drowned out by haters and unable to know if their money is going to their fave authors. This is the current state of selling books on the internet, particularly on the virtual bookstore that shall not be named.





Enter blockchain and a bright idea by Access Copyright to harness it.





Why not give fans a place to connect with

Shireen’s Recent Updates

Shireen is 78% done with THREE MEN OUT: Baseball is a game of statistics, and it feels like Stout is mimicking that in details. Checked back a few times because I felt like I was forgetting details. But some details are vague in their specificity. Clever! Hard to visualize.

Shireen is 72% done with THREE MEN OUT: It isn’t easy to visualize a negative like the title of the last story in this book. I think it’s...nope, can’t recall it other than has kill in it. The tsunami of details at first overloaded me so that I rationalized I don’t need to visualize, I can skim. Bad idea. I went back and made an effort. Also reviewed names properly. Still verbalizing better. Enjoying glimpse into another baseball era.

The Firm by John Grisham
"This was a book I read years ago when it came out because it was all the rage. Like DaVinci Code something in it resonated with readers and it went viral. Also, like DaVinci Code, the plot is rather improbable.
