Hey, I submitted another story. That's two now. In preparation for my upcoming fame, Iona snapped headshots. Short skirt long jacket. So busy writing just ALL THE TIME. Unfiltered. Continue reading

There is a cafe close to school that we visit on our way home sometimes. Usually it's when Iona's had a bad day, so we can get her a chocolate chip cookie. Han gets something, too, and sometimes I even... Continue reading

There is so much tumbling around in my brain that I don't know where to begin. First, this neglected blog. I am considering shutting it down, though I honestly don't know how. I remember starting it all those years ago... Continue reading

I'm trying to figure out how to put together a writer's website. Once again I am clobbered by the it's-so-much-more-work-than-I-thought-it-would-be pie in the face. Now I will meditate, because looking at other author websites led me to the blog about... Continue reading

Coffee. Robert Horton, a principled, drily funny man of movies and comic books. I try not to miss him Wednesdays on Steve Scher's Weekday and I usually do miss him. My kids, duh. (The 'duh' is a tribute to Iona.... Continue reading

I wrote my second query letter. Now I need to finish the book. During my query-letter-writing exercise, I learned that when I promote my work I feel tense and tingly, with a dash of excited dread in my neck region.... Continue reading

Does my preteen character amble, stroll, saunter or meander? He's going into a convenience store for a Bombpop. Or does he just walk? This is a kid, just coming on the scene, who's partly defined by his physical grace and... Continue reading
