Retreat, Regroup, Resume

I sit here in my cozy kitchen looking through my manuscript notes as yet another nor'easter blasts my town with snow, and I'm content. Not only content, but downright happy. I don't even care that it's snowing AGAIN. I'm happy because the new story I'm working on has finally had its niggles worked out and... Continue Reading →

Boskone 55 Round-Up

Brand New Year

January is well underway, my to-do list is truly terrifying, and the little guilt demon on my shoulder is whispering ‘you haven’t written anything new in over a month’. But you know what? I don’t really care. I just spent a wonderful three weeks with my parents visiting from Brazil, and my brother and his... Continue Reading →
