I am working on Book Two (which still has no tentative or working title. It’s named ‘New Book’ on my computer…how boring) and am elbows deep in research of all sorts and generally just happy as a clam. I need a particular setting for a particular scene, so I’m researching to augment what I remember […]

Final day of my book tour, which has been an absolutely lovely experience. It’s been nice to be able to “talk” with readers who are interested in my book.

The entire premise behind the movie is to show the folks left at home that their soldiers are being cared for when they cannot, to show them stories of lasting love and faithfulness. It gives the soldiers an idea of what they might see at these canteens to give them […]
I was thinking about how bleak many LGBTQ storylines in movies, tv and books can be. When I was a teenager, the gay people I saw on TV and in movies were always part of a terribly depressing and traumatizing storyline – there were no happy endings. It seemed the gay characters were always going […]
