When the weather started getting warmer where I lived, she was always escaping out of the house. I kept letting her go out, and then one day, she didn't come back. I felt bad about losing track of her, and I hope she is okay, but I would really like to know what happened to her. I've had some neighbors tell me they still see her from time to time, but I haven't seen her in months. I have an idea for a mystery novel I'm going to incorporate that into, one of these days!

DEAR READER ...

Hi there!

If you're like me, chances are you hate paying for stuff. Especially stuff you're not sure you're going to like.

I COMPLETELY understand. I don't want you to spend X amount of money on my work only to hate it. Depending on which book of mine it is, you might have picked up the ONLY one you'll actually hate (yes, you'll probably hate at least one. I like my stuffy, egotistical characters) Read more of this blog post »

“I've gone crazy and now so have my imaginary friends.”
C.S. Johnson, Slumbering

“It can be crazy hard. To keep your faith, to keep going. It can be harder than I ever would have imagined. Sometimes things happen to you, really bad things that aren't fair, things that make you feel so terrible you're not even sure who you are anymore or whether you're right or wrong, good or bad. Sometimes you feel like there's no one to turn to, and you're all alone and so scared you can hardly move and so tired you just want to curl up in a ball and go to sleep forever. I guess that's kind of the way Alex felt that last night I saw him. And that's the way I felt now. But I guess I had one advantage over Alex. I guess in some way I'd been training for this time my whole life. I'd been training every day, even in simple things, little things. I trained to keep my mind sharp when I went to school. I trained in karate to keep my body and spirit strong. Even when I just went to church, or when I prayed by myself, it was a kind of training: I was training to remember that I was not alone. I was never alone.”
Andrew Klavan

“If you're not at least willing to die for something- something that really matters- in the end, you die for nothing.”
Andrew Klavan, The Truth of the Matter

“If history can do anything it is to remind us that all our judgments are merely relative to time and circumstance.”
Herbert Butterfield

“The study of the past with one eye upon the present is the source of all sins and sophistries in history. It is the essence of what we mean by the word "unhistorical".”
Herbert Butterfield, The Whig Interpretation of History
