Tonight’s Wayward Reading

I now have a new thing for tonight’s reading at the Wayward Coffee House (8:00 PM).  For geeks, the Wayward is worth going to whether you’re there to hear me read or you want to drop in another time.  It’s very geekly and the coffee and atmosphere are great. So I already promised fiction set […]

Release Day for Wings of Creation!

Pardon the happy little post in advance.  It’s a gray day here is Seattle – with a touch of pink sunrise still in the window – but I’m hoping for a good one. A lot of writing is work.  By the time a book comes out,  I’m two books or more past it, and living […]

The Academy of New World Historians is Born

Writers have the best job in the world.  We make stuff up.  We daydream and what we daydream becomes real – as a book or a story or a poem. People read our daydreams, our musings, the things that grow out of our subconscious. I really did it this time. It all started with the […]
