Hi all! I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. Here things continue to be reasonably calm, although lockdown has been extended to the end of May. Better than the alternative, for sure. For me, of course, the difference between life under lockdown and life not under lockdown is not that big, but […]

Hi All! I hope everyone is doing well and was not blown away by the storm that swept through a good deal of the US this week. I, obviously, was not blown away, although we did get a tornado warning on Thursday. But the pets and I are still in Kansas, or near enough. Zelda […]

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the ’20s! Time really does feel like it’s slippin’, slippin, slippin’ into the future–which I guess is what it does. I’ve been quite busy with a new project.

Happy Solstice, everyone! In celebration of this most balanced and auspicious day, I thought I’d share a sneak peek of “The City of Shadows,” book 3 in the Giaco & Luca series.

Hi Everyone! I’ve been busy–and exhausted and sore–from the beginning of the semester and returning to teaching, so I don’t have a lot of news to share right now.

Read more "What Are We All Reading?"
Greetings from the swamp! Or at least that’s what it’s felt like this past week. It’s been in the 90s with massive thunderstorms every day this week until today. Now a cool, fall-like rain is coming down. Neither state has been doing much for my health. The damp has been turning everything into even more […]
