To Be Continued: Something that needs saying…

Hi Kids! Sorry I’ve been away for so long, but I’ve been busy, getting on with my new life. So, we can now vote early here in New Mexico, and a certain Republican has stuck his foot in it, and this whole bit, and he, may become irrelevant any day. So on the eve of…

The Final (okay, might never be really final) Chapter Two of Savage Investigations, The Novel: AfterMatth

GOOD COFFEE!

Hi Kids! Got something that I wrote just a few days after I retired, and yesterday I realized that I hadn’t shared it with you yet.

Aaaaand We’re Back!

Hello. So glad you could join us. It’s been awhile since last we spoke, and a lot of things have changed, but we’re nothing if not tenacious (even if it might take a couple of years or 5), and one of those changes is that I have retired. That’s right, on Friday, April 13th (I…
