I love libraries. Growing up, I spent hours in my local libraries, roaming the aisles between the shelves, inhaling that comfortable old-book smell, pulling titles that caught my eye. I researched school papers (this was before the internet, of course) and topics for stories I wanted to write. I learned how to read the Dewey… Continue reading E-Book Drama
My beta-reader got her comments/suggestions/edits back to me, so I've started working through them to get the manuscript updated. I'm still shooting for the end of August as my publishing date.

This was at the very beginnings of the internet as we now know it. There wasn’t much out there… Continue reading Publishing
And on the heels of rejection comes acceptance. I received word that my short story, "Reflections in Blue Water", will be published in the February 2019 edition of the Blue Lake Review. I've always considered "Reflections..." to be one of my outliers. Meaning, it's more of a literary piece and much different from the science… Continue reading Acceptance
