Jocelyn Koehler grew up in the wild, dark woods of Wisconsin, but now lives in a tiny house in Philadelphia that is filled with books, tea things, and places to read, sleep and write. She has worked as a librarian, bookseller, editor, archivist, cubicle drone, popcorn popper, and music store clerk. She has a love for fairy tales, folk stories, and weird, pretty prose.

Bad Archeologists (Storm King���s Thunder #3)

After the fire giants outpaced us, running away to the north, we returned to the campground, and decided to take a closer look at what they were unearthing. They grabbed SOMETHING out of the ground, but there���s a lot of SOMETHING left. It appears to be some sort of black metal in a long c-shaped arc, but none of us can quite figure out what it���s part of. A building? A huge ballista? Giant hors

I’ve just started to go through this book, but I’m really impressed with what I’ve tried so far. Melander offers a ton of writing insight and really gets a ton of content into one little book. There are a lot of “quests” (basically writing challenges ...more

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Michael Bassey Johnson
“People will walk in and walk out of your life, but the one whose footstep made a long lasting impression is the one you should never allow to walk out.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

John Rogers
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

[Kung Fu Monkey -- Ephemera, blog post, March 19, 2009]”
John Rogers

“Don't you understand that we need to be childish in order to understand? Only a child sees things with perfect clarity, because it hasn't developed all those filters which prevent us from seeing things that we don't expect to see.”
Douglas Adams, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

“I commend you on your skepticism, but even the skeptical mind must be prepared to accept the unacceptable when there is no alternative. If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidæ on our hands.”
Douglas Adams, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
