Happy Holidays, my friends!  And here’s hoping that this will be a happier month than the one we’ve just endured. First of all, I’m looking forward to the Longest Night Masquerade Ball in Pennsylvania on December 10th.  It will be a fabulous affair with costumes, pageantry and custom-bottled joie, and it’s all to raise funds [...]

November 2016

Yay for November!  It’s time for autumn leaves, roast turkey, pumpkin pies, reading books by a cozy fire and… the Gilmore Girls reunion special on Netflix!  Yeah, I admit it, I’m excited.  It’s no accident that it’s Daisy and her mom’s favorite show in the Agent of Hel books.  I think it’s referenced a dozen times [...]

October 2016

Not gonna lie, I feel kind of guilty writing this month’s update because it’s about something very cool that many of my readers may covet… and it’s no longer available.  But it’s too cool not to discuss! I’m talking about the limited edition of Kushiel’s Dart that was just released by specialty [...]

September 2016

Well, that went fast!  It seems like it was just a few weeks ago that I was getting ready for our trip to Iceland, fretting over whether I had the right clothing to pack for a varied and unpredictable climate.  Spoiler alert:  I did.  Layers are key.  Now Labor Day is [...]

So, Iceland! Everyone I know who’s traveled there comes back raving about how beautiful it is, and it’s true.  Pictures don’t do it justice, though I’ve posted a few of my favorites.  You can see that it’s stunning, but it’s hard to convey just how primordial the landscape feels. Iceland is [...]

June and July 2016

Greetings!  This post will be doing double duty for the months of June and July, as I’ll be traveling; first to Green Bay to attend an 80th birthday celebration for my partner Julie’s parents, and then to Iceland. Yes, Iceland!  Glaciers!  Waterfalls!  Midnight sun!  Puffins!  Geothermal pools!  Ponies!  I think this experience will offer a [...]

May 2016

Oops! Time got away from me this month; I realized yesterday was May 1st, and I hadn’t posted an update! So once again, this will be a brief one. Regular visitors will notice that my site has undergone a long-overdue update, and is now mobile friendly.  Yay! There are still some further renovations to be [...]

April 2016

Happy Spring, everyone! The crocuses are blooming, the daffodils and hyacinths are on their way, the spring peepers are singing their chorus, the goldfinches are shedding their winter olive-drab for bright yellow plumage… and I’m swamped, so this will be a hasty entry. Nothing bad, I promise!  It’s just that at this particular juncture in [...]

March 2016

DarkCon, Pi-Con, LunaCon, Confusion, VeriCon, KeyCon, In-CON-Ceivable.... what do these things have in common? Okay, duh, yes. But in addition to the obvious, these are a handful of regional science fiction & fantasy conventions where I've had the privilege of being a Guest of Honor. I've written a variation of this post before, prompted by the fact [...]

February 2016

First, an announcement! I'll be the Author Guest of Honor at CoastCon in Biloxi, Mississippi next month from March 4-6. Hope to see some of you there! So I had an encounter recently that got me thinking about the merits of subversiveness. While giving my Rotary club an update, the superintendent of our local public [...]
