It’s Not Art. And That’s OK

Whenever I have a moment to read them, I find I get a lot out of secular fantasy author David Farland’s email bulletins he calls his “Daily Kick in the Pants.” Now, as I understand it these “daily kicks” are coming to an end due to some other pursuits Mr. Farland has going, but over […]

Bryan Thomas Schmidt on Writing

As many of you know, I will have the great privilege of being one of the first authors published by a new publishing house, Diminished Media Group later this month. Since DMG is just getting rolling, it seemed like a great time to get in on the “ground floor” so to speak in meeting their […]

When is Enough Enough?

The pages on the calendar are turning at an alarming rate for me these days. I switched the wall calendar to October on Saturday morning and swallowed a huge lump in my throat. October is going to be a big month around our house. First, I’m the featured author in Digital Dragon Magazine as it […]

Just about every American you talk to can remember where they were that day…like it’s this generation’s Kennedy […]

Having rejoined the workforce after eleven years of stay-at-home parenting has placed me right smack-dab in the middle of the throngs of folks commuting every day from my part of the universe to all points closer to Philadelphia. My drive to work is one of those that takes less than thirty minutes if you embark […]

Let the Games Begin

For those of you who know me, you may be wondering how my family is faring in the face of hurricane Irene’s landfall in our area…the quick update is that it was really no big deal around our house, other than a little water in the basement due to over-saturated ground. We are well, it’s […]
