I’m On The Round Table Podcast

I can’t believe it’s taken me almost two weeks to post about this! Many apologies to Dave, Terry, and Jake for the massive delays in getting this “out the door.” A few months ago, I sat on the Skype-line with three fantastic gentlemen and scholars of the writing craft and pitched a story idea to ...

Childhood Home

Childhood Home
I found out this morning that the home I consider the most important one I’ve ever had burned down in the early morning hours. While I lived in a good number of homes growing up, this is the one I consider my childhood home. My grandparents bought the home in 1978 when I was five ...

An Article At SF Signal

Sarah Chorn (Bookworm Blues) put out a call on social media for articles for her Special Needs in Strange Worlds column over at SF Signal. I’ve been a big supporter and fan of Sarah’s column since it came out, and when she needed help, I had an article leap into my mind that I had ...

New Desk

New Desk
Note before you start reading: You can click the photos to view them full-sized. I just thought you might want to know that before you scroll down. My old desk was falling apart. The front lip was barely holding on, the surface was scratched and stained. I didn’t care about the stains, but the mars ...

Obligatory 2014 Recap

Obligatory 2014 Recap
Wow. What a year. Ups. Downs. Even some sideways curves thrown in. I’m not going to go through every, gritty little detail and bore you to death. Here are some highlights of the year for me!

A Post In Which I’m Interviewed

Hey all. Long time no post. Sorry for the radio silence here, but life’s been… well… life. I wanted to drop by here real quick and let everyone know that I’m still alive and well. I’m well enough to do interviews, too! I have proof of that statement over at K.J. Scrim’s web site. If you ...

Book Review: Divinity by Michelle L. Johnson

Book Review: Divinity by Michelle L. Johnson
I met Michelle at the 2014 Pikes Peak Writers Conference and, as writers will do, we got to talking about what we write. When she told me about her book, I knew I had to have it. As soon as she let me know that the pre-order for Divinity was available, I slapped down my ...

The Cat’s in the Cradle

On Tuesday, when I got home from the Day Job, my son approached me within seconds of my backpack hitting the floor. He asked, “Daddy? Can we play football?” I told him that I wanted a few minutes to veg out and just chill before doing anything. I’m often tired from the long day at work and ...
